The market for Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions
is one that is rapidly becoming highly competitive, as companies
new and old aim for their slice of the emerging market.
Portland, Oregon based startup AppFog is among those that are
trying to grab PaaS share. Until this month, AppFog was known as
PHP Fog and focused exclusively on providing a PaaS solution for
PHP developers and servers. The company is now expanding beyond
just PHP with a PaaS platform for multiple languages including
Ruby, and Java. The expansion is being fueled by $8 million in
Series B investment led by Ignition Partners. In total, AppFog has
raised $9.8 million in funding to date.
