Cloud Computing: Methods and Practical Approaches (Computer Communications and Networks)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This book presents both state-of-the-art research developments and practical guidance on approaches, technologies and frameworks for the emerging cloud paradigm. Topics and features: presents the state of the art in cloud technologies, infrastructures, and service delivery and deployment models; discusses relevant theoretical frameworks, practical approaches and suggested methodologies; offers guidance and best practices for the development of cloud-based services and infrastructures, and examines management aspects of cloud computing; reviews consumer perspectives on mobile cloud computing and cloud-based enterprise resource planning; explores software performance testing, open-source cloudware support, and assessment methodologies for modernization, migration and pre-migration; describes emerging new methodologies relevant to the cloud paradigm, and provides suggestions for future developments and research directions.
discusses the role of cloud service brokers, and the other two discuss resource and scheduling management of cloud applications and present management infrastructures for power-efficient cloud environments. • Part III: Cloud Perspectives and Patterns. There are four chapters in this part that focus on consumer perspectives on mobile cloud computing, potential and concerns relating to cloud-based enterprise resource planning and cloud solution patterns. The patterns refer to the entire set of
capabilities including storage and computation are decoupled from the rest of the system. This critical architectural principle has been critical to being able to move these functional capabilities outside the local confines of the system. This architectural framework has been validated through implementation on several different projects and through several different scientific disciplines. While the sciences are different, at the infrastructure level, there are many opportunities to reuse the
accessed via URLs, which makes them easily accessible from users online. In addition, we can use Amazon CloudFront to automatically host the data at different data centers around the world to reduce download times for our international users. However, S3 files are not suitable for dynamic computations within EC2. For data sets that will be used to dynamically generate products, we will store them in EBS. EBS is attached to EC2 instances and can be readily accessible to processes using standard
in the emerging cloud space. 5.2.2 Characteristics Cloud service brokers are not service providers themselves and do not host any applications/services. They also do not provide infrastructure or other resources directly to the clients. Their job is to perform value-added brokerage between cloud service consumers and providers. There may be a one-to-one, many-to-one, one-to-many, or many-to-many relationships between the cloud service broker and the cloud service provider and the cloud service
become more specialized, e.g., for certain domains, like banking or insurance, or for certain specialized type of computing, like big data-related computing. Data consolidation, specifically context based (over multiple applications and providers), is another functionality that cloud service brokers are going to provide soon. In fact, Appirio  SalesWorks already provides access to Salesforce Chatter  that feeds on contacts, accounts, and opportunities directly within Google Apps  for
