Supported platforms

YAWP! supports two platforms as persistence layers: Google App Engine Datastore and PostgreSQL.

The main idea is that you can bootstrap your application really fast using App Engine’s auto-scaling PaaS (free to start). But if scalability is not an issue or if you’d rather handle it by yourself, with the aid of YAWP!’s PostgreSQL persistence driver you can also deploy your API to an IaaS (e.g., Amazon AWS) in which you can have more control of the environment.
