According to a recent IDC report the expected value of the U.S. cloud market will Continue reading “Cloud Services – Golden Times Still Ahead?” »
Web browser cookies, also called HTTP cookies, web cookies or browser cookies, are typically small text files, given ID tags that get stored on a computer’s browser directory or program data subfolders to inform a website about a user’s earlier action when browsing the same website again. The website server from where the cookie was sent from recognizes the returning user to a site.
The name “cookies” derives from the term “magic cookie” which refers to the packet of data a program receives and sends unchanged. Cookies were originally introduced to allow the browser to remember the content of a web site’s “shopping cart” – a virtual device into which the user can store what he wants to buy as he keeps on navigating through the web site.

Progressively, business move their IT into the cloud to benefit from the broad range of possibilities, using Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to reach out to clients, manage data and develop intelligent business strategies that can keep up with rapidly developing technologies.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines cloud computing as having: Continue reading “Design of Cloud Migration” »
More and more enterprises are transferring their data into the cloud and excitement about scalability, cost-saving, improved data and customer management. With increasingly improved security management, cloud computing seems to be the ultimate solution of any IT problem.
The limiting factor for data transfer from Local Area Networks (LAN) into the cloud is b bandwidth.
Network bandwidth, or digital bandwidth, is defined as “computer network’s net rate” which is the amount of data transfer, channel capacity or maximum throughput of a logical or physical communication path. It is measured as “bytes per second (bps)” for digital services or Hertz (Hz) for analog devices. Continue reading “Bandwidth Bottlenecks – A Limit of Enterprise Cloud Computing?” »
Supercomputers, also referred to as High Performance Computing (HPC), is technology at the forefront of present processing abilities, particularly as being the fastest type of computing today.
Indeed, supercomputers are millions of times more powerful than regular traditional desktop computers Continue reading “Supercomputers” »
Moving a software application to the cloud merely means running it in the web rather than on the traditional data center infrastructure.
The main advantages to migrate data and software operations to the cloud include Continue reading “Migrating the Cloud” »
Cloud computing technology uses the web and remote servers to facilitate and maintain subscription-based or pay-per-use service in real-time and makes computing more efficient due to its capability of centralizing data storage, memory and information processing.
Cloud computing services are usually grouped as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). SaaS, PaaS and IaaS are sold on demand at any given time to the customer while the service is fully managed by the vendor.
SaaS cloud models are characterized by vendors who provide the hardware infrastructure and software product interacting with the customer through a front-end portal. Continue reading “Cloud Computing as a Service” »
Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions provide important benefits for businesses. Enterprises at any development stage can take advantage of PaaS being always available, reliable, scalable and secure. Using these on demand services significantly Continue reading “Why PaaS for Business Applications?” »
Cloud computing has radically affected the way businesses are created and run. It includes platforms that are built and to run custom applications using the concept of the “Platform as a Service” (PaaS) which is a web-based, on-demand service. Multiple providers such as Amazon.com, Google or iTunes impacted the way data is seen and transmitted through a web browser to successfully drive business.
PaaS promises the vendor using the platform that the “perfect” infrastructure is provided for developing and managing a software application including Continue reading “About PaaS” »
