Moving To The Cloud: Developing Apps in the New World of Cloud Computing

Buy
Information is the most valuable resource in the 21st century. Whether for a consumer looking for a restaurant in San Francisco, a small business woman checking textile prices in Bangalore, or a financial services executive in London studying stock market trends, information at the moment of decision is key in providing the insights that afford the best outcome.

We now are sitting at a critical juncture of two of the most significant trends in the information technology industry – the convergence of cloud computing and mobile personal information devices into the Mobility/Cloud Ecosystem that delivers next-generation personalized experiences using a scalable and secure information infrastructure. This ecosystem will be able to store, process, and analyze massive amounts of information around structured, unstructured and semi-structured data. All this data will be accessed and analyzed at the speed of business.

In the past few years, the information technology industry began describing a future where everything is delivered as a service via the cloud, from computing resources to personal interactions. The future mobile internet will be 10 times the size of the desktop internet, connecting more than 10 billion “devices” from smartphones to wireless home appliances. Information access will then be as ubiquitous as electricity. Research advancements that the IT industry is making today will allow us to drive economies of scale into this next phase of computing to create a world where increasing numbers of people will be able to participate in and benefit from the information economy.

This book provides an excellent overview of all the transformations that are taking place in the IT industry around Cloud computing, and that, in turn, are transforming society. The book provides an overview of the key concepts of cloud computing, analyzes how cloud computing is different from traditional computing and how it enables new applications while providing highly scalable versions of traditional applications. It also describes the forces driving cloud computing, describes a well-known taxonomy of cloud architectures, and discusses at a high level the technological challenges inherent in cloud computing.

The book covers key areas of the different models of cloud computing: infrastructure as a service, platform as a service and software as a service. It then talks about paradigms for developing cloud applications. It finally talks about cloudrelated technologies such as security, cloud management and virtualization.

HP Labs as the central research organization for Hewlett Packard has carried out research in many aspects of cloud computing in the past decade. The authors of the book are researchers in HP Labs India, and have contributed to many years of research on these topics. They have been able to provide their own personal research insight into the contents of the book and their vision of where this technology is headed.
