Search Engine Giant Yandex Launches Cocaine, A Cloud Service To Compete With Google App Engine

Russian search giant Yandex has launched an open-source platform as a service (PaaS) called Cocaine that the company says allows developers to build out their own app engines. Yandex, in its documentation, describes Cocaine as an open-source PaaS system for creating custom cloud-hosting apps that are similar to Google App Engine or Heroku. It supports C++, Python and JavaScript. It is now developing support for Java and Racket.



How's that for linkbait? ;)

Seems like it was a good idea to a technerd somewhere. Might have been more appealing if they simply called it Money.
