This post describes a prototype implementation of a simple PAAS built on the Hadoop YARN framework and the key findings from the experiment. While there are some advantages to using Hadoop YARN, there is at least one unsolved issue that would be difficult to overcome at this point.
Code of this experiment was made available on GitHub.
