2011 is turning into a tremendously exciting year for Grails developers. One of the most important developments is the arrival of several new cloud hosting providers that work with Grails applications with minimal effort on your part. No longer do we have to look enviously at our Rails comrades who have Heroku et al.
The new batch of solutions are known as Platforms as a Service (PaaS), so this talk will first explain what this means before delving into the individual providers. You'll be able to compare what each provider offers and see how the Grails integration compares as well.
