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. This area of research is relatively recent, and as such has no existing reference book that addresses it. This book will be a timely contribution to a field that is gaining considerable research interest, momentum, and is expected to be of increasing interest to commercial developers. The book is targeted for professional computer science developers and graduate students especially at Masters level. As Cloud Computing is recognized as one of the top five emerging technologies that will have a major impact on the quality of science and society over the next 20 years, its knowledge will help position our readers at the forefront of the field.

Development of software projects is a part of the curriculum of under-graduate and postgraduate courses. The main objective of this book is to expose the students and professionals to the latest technology, relevant theory and software development tools. This book serves as a guide to design and develop the cloud computing-based software projects using distributed architecture. It consolidates the theory, upcoming technologies and development tools for the development of two software projects—Outstation Claim Management System (OCMS) and Retirement Benefit Calculation System (RBCS). Both the projects start with the feasibility study to understand and appreciate the problem. After understanding the problem and identifying the suitable software, hardware and network environment, the problem is formally depicted using the entity relationship model and data flow diagrams. This is followed by normali-zation, creation of tables and procedures. In the book, Oracle, PL/SQL, Internet Developer Suite (IDS) and .Net framework are used to develop the full-fledged GUI-based applications. The book elaborates the problem, providing logic and interface screens to design and develop the projects using any other programming language and GUI tool in which the students are comfortable with. The book also includes a CD-ROM, which contains the source codes of OCMS and RBCS. The book is meant for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Computer Science, Computer Applications and Information Technology. Besides, it would also be useful to the professionals to enhance their technical skills. After going through this book, the students/professionals will be able to: Work on real-life projects.Implement the SDLC in software projects.Design the data flow diagrams and entity relationship diagrams.Use the database and normalization in software projects.Do the corrective, adaptive and perfective maintenance of a software.Learn the concepts related to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS of Cloud Computing.

Cloud Computing: Theory and Practice, Second Edition, provides students and IT professionals with an in-depth analysis of the cloud from the ground up. After an introduction to network-centric computing and network-centric content in Chapter One, the book is organized into four sections. Section One reviews basic concepts of concurrency and parallel and distributed systems. Section Two presents such critical components of the cloud ecosystem as cloud service providers, cloud access, cloud data storage, and cloud hardware and software. Section Three covers cloud applications and cloud security, while Section Four presents research topics in cloud computing. Specific topics covered include resource virtualization, resource management and scheduling, and advanced topics like the impact of scale on efficiency, cloud scheduling subject to deadlines, alternative cloud architectures, and vehicular clouds. An included glossary covers terms grouped in several categories, from general to services, virtualization, desirable attributes and security. Includes new chapters on concurrency, cloud hardware and software, challenges posed by big data and mobile applications and advanced topics Provides a new appendix that presents several cloud computing projects Presents more than 400 references in the text, including recent research results in several areas related to cloud computing

As more and more data is generated at a faster-than-ever rate, processing large volumes of data is becoming a challenge for data analysis software. Addressing performance issues, Cloud Computing: Data-Intensive Computing and Scheduling explores the evolution of classical techniques and describes completely new methods and innovative algorithms. The book delineates many concepts, models, methods, algorithms, and software used in cloud computing. After a general introduction to the field, the text covers resource management, including scheduling algorithms for real-time tasks and practical algorithms for user bidding and auctioneer pricing. It next explains approaches to data analytical query processing, including pre-computing, data indexing, and data partitioning. Applications of MapReduce, a new parallel programming model, are then presented. The authors also discuss how to optimize multiple group-by query processing and introduce a MapReduce real-time scheduling algorithm. A useful reference for studying and using MapReduce and cloud computing platforms, this book presents various technologies that demonstrate how cloud computing can meet business requirements and serve as the infrastructure of multidimensional data analysis applications.
