Google's AppEngine is pretty nice. by Richard L. Burton III

I believe AppEngine did a pretty awesome job. They even went as far as to go with a Java standard JDO or JPA to abstract their data store layer. I don't feel it's a *high* risk for vendor locking, but it would require some thought in abstracting certain parts of your code base in case you intend to move away from them.

Good video.
