NIWA Cloud Application Platform is a platform as a service (PaaS) cloud computing platform for developing and hosting web application.

Web applications run in several containers in the cloud. This allows you to scale applications automatically: while the number of requests to the application grows, resources are allocated automatically.

Supported features/restrictions[edit]

Currently, the supported programming language Perl (PSGI interface only). In the future we plan to support programming languages are Ruby (Rack interface) and Python (WSGI interface).

Perl[edit]

An example of the smallest applications[edit]

  • …/hello_world.psgi
  my $app = sub {
      my $env = shift;
      return [ '200',
             [ 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' ],
             [ "Hello World" ] ];
  };
