We have been working on my next project, a multiplayer ebook & game, in my spare time. We have both a turn-based and real-time project in development.
I had originally planed to use Photon by Exit Games, but after playing with http://coronium.io/ for a bit, it is my cloud middleware/backend tool of choice. Chris has done an incredible job on building a very useful system.  Working on my EC2 installation on AWS and Digital Ocean!

Starting  research for a book chapter/book on mobile app/game design using cloud computing.  Plan to focus on PaaS providers like AWS Elastic Bean Stalk, GAE, & M.S. Azure.  
I know there are a lot of others out there, but their pricing isn't varied or free like the big 3.  Am I missing anyone? Are there services I should be sure to include?
