Oracle Application Express in the cloud

You may have heard a thing or two about cloud computing. Jason Straub, from the Oracle Application Express development team, recently blogged about using Oracle Application Express in the cloud - and how you can run APEX in the cloud for as cheap as 20 cents USD / hour.

There's a little bit of setup to use the Elastic Compute Cloud, but once that's behind you, you can easily stand up your own Oracle database in the cloud for a tiny amount of money. And, in my opinion, this just further demonstrates how the browser-based Oracle Application Express hosted development and deployment environment is so well suited to cloud computing.
