Hello guys,
As we know how cloud computing is one of the best technology that many companies are adapting.So we too want to make our application cloud enabled.I have assigned a task of doing it.Duration of it is two months.
As I am new to this not getting from where to start.I have to submitt a plan for it in order to complete in it two months.
My Project subject is like,
Cloud Computing certifying on VM enviroment Challanges and opportunity investigate the suitability og application tobe used in cloud enviroment and its suitability to cloud dynamisam.
We must investigate the suitability to the cloud .

So,do provide guidelines for this.
Thanks in advance,


Regards,

Nitsss

I would say that you need to first start understanding how cloud computing works. Then start looking at various providers, and the features provided by each.

Also,

What is your ultimate goal of using cloud technology?

I'm trying to push it here (very very slowly.. old habits die hard), to avail of:

push deploy: Simply push your war, you get a dynamic dns and off you go!
no hardcoded ips in properties: Allow the cloud to allocated dbs and other resources.

Here it takes 3 days to get a JBoss instance setup and allocated.
I could do it in 3 minutes (even less) with an internal cloud.

Go research cloud foundy and other options as already suggested.

Why do you want it to be cloud enabled? What are you going to gain from cloud enabling your application?

What do you mean by "cloud enabled"? How would your application be different once it is "cloud enabled"? Do you only mean the ability to use cloud storage providers (such as DropBox), or are you wanting to interface with social networks (such as Facebook), or is it something else? (I know what I mean when I talk about cloud enabling an app, but I seriously doubt you have the same meaning - there is no way you could cloud enable an app based on my definition on 2 months!)

Good post Peter..

To most, the "cloud" is simply a concern. To others we know it takes a lot of work in terms
of both infrastructure and application architecture.

Hi Jayesh,
I want to make my application as cloud enabled because there are many benefits of it like elasticity,available anywhere at any time etc.

Yes, but how does it help your application? Why do you need elasticity? What kind of load are you experiencing? Is your application is a plain old web app? or does it do any background processing? Are you experiencing (or planing to ) too many web requests that overwhelm your system? or are you planning to run larger jobs in the background?

Unless you have an extremely simple application, there is no way you can achieve that goal in your stated timeframe. You might even have a hard time coming up with a *plan* to "cloud enable" your app in just 2 months!

POC? Please UseRealWords, and it is always best to spell out acronyms.

I wrote a white paper on this that I presented at the CMG conference last year, but that paper is not yet publicly available (only CMG members have access). But this IBM post covers many of the same areas that I covered (my team ran across that post after we did our initial research but it was good to get outside confirmation for many of the things we discovered):

Hi friends,

Firstly you need proper known about cloud computing. Cloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over a network. It brings instant time to value, with complete platform independence. for more other information or help search on google.
