Mastering Cloud Computing: Foundations and Applications Programming
Mastering Cloud Computing: Foundations and Applications Programming

 

 Mastering Cloud Computing is designed for undergraduate students learning to develop cloud computing applications. Tomorrow’s applications won’t live on a single computer but will be deployed from and reside on a virtual server, accessible anywhere, any time. Tomorrow’s application developers need to understand the requirements of building apps for these virtual systems, including concurrent programming, high-performance computing, and data-intensive systems.

 The primary purpose of this book is to capture the state-of-the-art in Cloud Computing technologies and applications. The book will also aim to identify potential research directions and technologies that will facilitate creation a global market-place of cloud computing services supporting scientific, industrial, business, and consumer applications. We expect the book to serve as a reference for larger audience such as systems architects, practitioners, developers, new researchers and graduate level students.

Enterprise Cloud Computing: A Strategy Guide for Business and Technology Leaders
Enterprise Cloud Computing: A Strategy Guide for Business and Technology Leaders
 We are witnessing the third seismic shift in information technology over the past fifty years. In the beginning it was centralized computing where mainframe computers gave companies economies of scale in handling their data processing. Then it was client-server computing driven by networks and PCs that gave companies new sources of efficiency. Now we are witnessing the emergence of a third computing model and it will have a huge impact on business, — especially in today’s economy full of unexpected change. As with the first two computing models as they emerged, we may not be totally sure what it is or how it will change the rules of business and create new winners and losers in the marketplace. It s called Cloud Computing and the economic and innovation implications are game changing. No one needs to know more about the business implications of Cloud Computing than C-level executives responsible for the future of their organizations, for the wow isn t just about technology, it s about the promise of on-demand business innovation. But even more than understanding this new wave, they need to act, and act now. Written by industry veterans with a combined leadership experience of over 100 years at the intersection of business and technology, Enterprise Cloud Computing provides strategic insights, describes the breakout business models and offers the planning and implementation guidance business and technology leaders need to chart their course ahead. This is the companion book to “Dot.Cloud: The 21st Century Business Platform.”

Start JBoss 7 as a service on Ubuntu

Previous versions of JBoss included a scripts (like jboss_init_redhat.sh) that could be copied to /etc/init.d in order to add it as a service – so it would start on boot up. I can’t seem to find any similar scripts in JBoss 7.

If you have copied from other editor or any web page then you will find some unwanted character in the file which will give you error when you will try to run the script.

Error: Bad Interpreter…

Verify Interpreter by “which sh” command in console

Result will be /bin/sh

Then verify the script openining it in VI editor.

what is cloud computing Definition – with real world examples


Definition of Cloud Computing with Real World Example

The curious question is: what is Cloud computing Definition with real world example? It is a disruptive and innovative model for enabling convenient, on-demand, and flexible access to a shared pool of computing resources such as networks, servers, storage, applications, and services which are configurable and can be quickly provisioned and de-provisioned with minimal or no management effort or service provider interaction.

This model is composed of three service models, four deployment models, and five essential characteristics as per NIST.

On-demand self-service: Use credit card and use resources  such as compute, storage, database from cloud environment without any interaction with service providers or any delay due to workflows and permissions. It takes less than a MINUTE! And believe me, you are not day dreaming…It is a reality.

Go to http://aws.amazon.com/ and verify yourself

  • Real world example: SMS activation:
  • Prerequisite: Enough balance in the Mobile (Map it with Credit Card in Cloud environment )
  • Request Service by calling on *110# (Airtel) (Map it with http://aws.amazon.com in Cloud environment )
  • And you can easily use the services required

Balance/Usage: with *123*3# you know the available amount of SMS (In case of Cloud, All Cloud Service Provider gives Dashboard/ Management Console/ Cost Control Dashboard which gives you  information regarding your resource usage, cost and many more things.

Broad network access: Computing resources such as compute and storage capacity are available over network / on internet or intranet and they can be accessed via various devices such as smartphones, iPads, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and workstations.

Real world example: Videos on Mobile Web – Applications, wallpapers and ringtones from Internet are used

Smartphone
Smartphone

The more suitable example can be the way we watch videos over internet; similarly we can use various resources on Cloud as well…

Resource pooling: A resource pool is a set of resource which is homogeneous with respect to some activity, action or context. Cloud Service provider create a pool of all computing resources to serve multiple consumers in a multi-tenant environment, where different physical and virtual resources are dynamically assigned and re-assigned according to demand.

Resource Pooling (Source - VMware)
Resource Pooling (Source – VMware)

Real world example: In software engineering, a connection pool is considered as a cache of database connections so that the connections can be reused in case of future requests to the database are required.

Purpose: To enhance performance of executing database commands

In case of cloud environment, resources are pooled together and its capacities are used in unified manner to enhance the performance and customer satisfaction.

Rapid elasticity: Application can expand on demand, across all its tiers  such as presentation layer, database layer,application layer – MVC).  It also implies that application components can grow independently from each other. So if you require more storage for database, you should be able to grow that tier without affecting the availabilityof that application, reconfiguration, or changing the other tiers.

Real world example: In physics, elasticity or stretchiness is the physical property of a material that returns to its original shape after the stress e.g. external forces (Consider Peak Hours as external forces in cloud environment)

Measured service: Cloud environment automatically control and optimize resource use by leveraging a metering or chargeback capacity. The basic value proposition of cloud computing is its utility based price model where you pay for what you use. Resource usage in cloud environment can be monitored, controlled, and notified via alerts, dashboards. It is a very basic feature which is essential in Cloud environment

Real world example: Consumers pay for electricity as they have used it
