The developer platform gives you a rich ecosystem of foundational technology built on open source and open standards. You can choose to use all elements of the developer platform or only those you choose. Your architecture choices shouldn't be tied to a single vendor ecosystem. When you have the freedom to choose, you're freed from costly cloud bills, sys-admin challenges, and configuration hassles freeing you to build the next big thing.
