Cloud Architectures : The style of building applications using services available in the Internet cloud
Here are some key difficulties surrounding large-scale data processing:
- It’s difficult to get as many machines as an app needs
- It’s difficult to get the machines when one needs them
- It’s difficult to auto-scale up and down based on dynamic workloads
Cloud architectures can solve these difficulties.
This informative paper is broken down into two sections: first, discover the business benefits of cloud architectures, and see an example of an application that’s currently in production using the on-demand infrastructure provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS); second, learn some of the best practices for using each Amazon Web Service to build an industrial-strength, scalable application.
