We present the design and implementation of AppScale, an open source extension to the Google Ap- pEngine (GAE) Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud technology. Our extensions build upon the GAE SDK to facilitate distributed execution of GAE applications over Xen-based clusters, including Infrastructure- as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud systems such as Amazons AWS/EC2 and Eucalyptus. AppScale provides a framework with which researchers can investigate the interaction between PaaS and IaaS systems as well as the inner workings of, and new technologies for, PaaS cloud technologies using real GAE applications.
