Architecting Applications to Scale in the Cloud

whitePaper |

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and similar cloud-service offerings have revolutionized the ways in which organizations approach application development and deployment. Through cloud services, organizations can obtain on-demand—inexpensive, modular infrastructures for deploying virtual instances of networking components, storage repositories, compute platforms, and management frameworks. As cloud services continue to mature, the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model has been steadily gaining recognition and favor. The abstraction layers provided when using a PaaS model offer a particularly effective means for developers to focus on coding and to implement a variety of business applications efficiently on public clouds. These abstractions also relieve administrators of many of the configuration and deployment challenges, as well as maintaining traditional hardware servers, providing a ready means for self provisioning IT resources, and easily configuring the PaaS environment through administrative tools and control panels to address changing requirements.

MapReduce Programming Model for .NET-Based Cloud Computing

whitePaper |

Recently several organisations are building data center scale of computer systems to meet the increasing demands of high storage and processing requirements of data-intensive and compute-intensive applications. On the industry front, companies such as Google and its competitors have constructed large scale data centers to provide stable web search services with high quality of response time and availability. Although Google does not disclose the size of their server infrastructure, it is reported to be around 450,000 to several million commodity machines dispersed across about 25 data centers. Microsoft also presents the result of a research project, called Dryad, using over 1,800 processors to perform computations accessing up to 10 terabytes of data. On the other side, many scientific research works increasingly rely on large scale data sets and powerful processing ability provided by super computer systems, commonly referred to e-Science.
