The State of Cloud Computing vis-a-vis End User Companies You are using an outdated browser. PaaS provides all kinds of hardware, software stack and tools to enable an IT department to deploy apps over a cloud. Cloud computing is one of the buzzwords in the web design and computing industry that seems to have a very simple definition, but a myriad of uses. You can assume that since you are using a company as large as Google that all of your documents will be safe, plus you have reduced hard drive usage and are using less resources to create the document.
Today I want to talk about two cloud computing applications: Amazon Simple Storage Services (S3) and Amazon CloudFront. Now that you have a little background on cloud computing and the Amazon services we are going to be focusing on, what exactly are we using them for? Now, we’ll stay in the AWS Console, but navigate to the CloudFront area by clicking “Services” in the top navigation. Now, all we have to do is click on the “Create Distribution” button, and from the two options select “Download”, as it will use the S3 bucket that we created previously.
Now that we have our bucket created, we have to set up our WordPress site to communicate with S3 and start to upload all of our files. Once we have the plugin installed and activated, we are going to navigate to the General Settings within the plugin options. Once we’ve set CloudFront as our CDN, we can now navigate to the CDN page within the plugin options. This will host all of your attachments, theme, and WordPress core files on S3 so almost your entire site will be served from Amazon S3.
I chose to do the Host attachments last because personally, that was the longest process of getting all of my files uploaded to Amazon S3. Next, navigate over to the CDN tab, and make sure “Enable CDN Support” is checked, and then we will enter in our CloudFront URL. Unfortunately, the WP Super Cache plugin does not include a way to automatically upload all of our WordPress files to our Amazon S3 bucket. Now all of your files should be synced up with your Amazon S3 bucket and the WP Super Cache plugin should be serving all of your files through CloudFront. Both of those plugins will upload files directly to S3 and make sure they don’t reside on your own server; be sure to read the description for both to see how they work. Join our 839,977 subscribers and get access to the latest tools, freebies, product announcements and much more! It is a phrase used to define the use of the internet and remote servers to store and manage data. You can create and work on your document on the internet, and when you save it, the file is also saved on the internet.

What these two services do is save files from your website onto Amazon’s remote servers, and serve these files to your user from multiple locations in the world to optimize loading time and file delivery, respectively. We are first going to click on “Create Bucket” to create the bucket for our WordPress site.
We are going to be using a popular WordPress Plugin called W3 Total Cache because not only does the plugin have features for easily working with S3 (and any CDN for that matter), it does a great job of speeding up your website using the best caching techniques — describing the caching side of W3 Total Cache is outside the scope of this article, but you can find a great tutorial here. We are going to go in reverse order as we will be uploading our theme files first, then our wp-includes files, and lastly our host attachments.
You will see progress as the files upload, and also identify any problems that may have occurred in the upload process. You activate the plugin by simply checking the “Caching On” radio button on the “Easy” tab of the WP Super Cache Settings.
You can find this URL by navigating to the AWS Console and looking at the Distribution that you just created, and it will be under the “Domain Name” column. Your website should now be hosting all of its files from Amazon’s Simple Storage Service and distributing them through the CloudFront content delivery network using your preferred WordPress caching plugin. Besides writing and web design, he loves to skateboard and snowboard, and has been doing both for 11 and 6 years respectively, although some would say it’s getting progressively harder for him to step away from his work and wander outside. Of course, while downloading it to your computer is always an option, most of what happens is on Google’s server.
You only pay for what you use, which is what makes the services provided by Amazon so great.
Here we are going to enter in our Access key ID, Secret key, and tell the plugin what S3 bucket we want to store our files in. Uploading is usually pretty quick, and should only take a minute or two, depending on your internet connection, to upload the theme files.
If you want to reduce the size of your images and consequently, the time it takes for them to upload to S3, I highly recommend checking out the WP plugin. Developers have to deal with myriad version mismatches of Java, or PHP or Microsoft libraries and frameworks and often work around them to push something into production. To find your Access key and Secret key, simply click your name when logged into the AWS Console, and click “Security Credentials” to receive the necessary information. Moreover to make matters worse, PaaS is expected to keep up with the dynamism of IT industry i.e. The AWS Console is where you will manage any of the services you use, but for now we are just interested in S3, so go ahead and click that link.
Once you have that information in, your buckets should automatically come up, so just make sure the correct one you want to use is selected. For instance, if there is library that helps plumbing social media integration or improve mobile compatibility or provide MBaaS, then a PaaS framework has to get it sooner than later in order to stay relevant and retain customer base.

Add to that the cost incurred when an end user type of customer buys  a piece of cloud infrastructure and takes some time before actually getting it to work for it.
This is very popular amongst verticals that are jittery about their data due to regulatory and privacy concerns. However the hourly billing of server and uptick in price that you have to bear with when you buy 99.9+ availability or fail over or clustering, tends to make IaaS cost prohibitive to have a lot of servers. Windows Azure provides IaaS in the form the VM Role (you upload a Windows Server 2008 R2 image and manage the server yourself). Once the batch job or data crunching needs start to become enormous or exponential wherein a whole lot of servers are needed to process the data in a timely fashion, cloud computing kicks in.
By dividing the work into a set of logically separate pieces and running them in parallel on several cloud servers, very high throughput can be achieved without spending a lot of dollars on cloud infrastructure. A business criterion for, dividing and running the job on several servers in tandem, needs to be evolved.
An example of PaaS would be Windows Azure (excluding the VM Role) services like web role, worker role, Reporting Services etc.
For starters, you can apply Pareto’s principle (also known as 80-20 rule).  This rule dictates that 20% of your customers bring 80% business.
These are the customers that deserve provisioning of a separate node for processing their data while rest 80% customers can be processed by a couple of in-house servers.What is your cloud strategy?
He is a dynamic professional with rich and proven experience in enterprise mobility solutions, Big Data based social analytics and cost efficient cloud based hosting and processing. A few decades ago, IBM used to offer its mainframes to banks, utilities and other industries on a rental basis and the billing used to be metered. Even today IBM is doing the same thing with much success thanks to the amazing performance of its mainframe servers.
Having said that, SaaS, with multi-tenancy and metered billing model at the heart of it, is more applicable for product and services companies that offer per use services over the net.
A lot of verticals, for better or worse, are not comfortable with the fact that the data lives somewhere outside of their brick and mortar structure.
These fears in the minds of the end user companies take us to the other forms of cloud computing i.e.
