In this talk, we present AppScale, an open source implementation of Google App Engine -- think Google's cloud platform under your control. AppScale executes App Engine apps without modification, automatically manages and scales apps and their service ecosystems, and enables developers to plug in different service alternatives (e.g. NoSQL, SQL, analytics, search,..) without rewriting their code.
