When you have an existing system, and you have a need to deploy a mobile app that won’t interfere with what’s already in place, the cloud can offer a great solution if managed correctly. With so many services on offer, there are many problems that cloud can be considered as a solution for, especially in projects where ” no one size fits all”. Such was the case for a recent cloud use case in mobile app development, as told in this SlideShare.
When designing applications for the cloud, or extending on-premise applications into the cloud, it should go without saying that you can’t just deploy and expect good results. There is much to consider from the very beginning as it relates to using cloud platforms fin development; these include scaling out, taking new and imaginative approaches to data storage, making full use of the wide range of products and services on offer from cloud providers (beyond hosting), and exploring the many flavours of hybrid solution which can mean all types of business can leverage the benefits of the cloud. These details are laid out further in the following SlideShare presentation.
“Architecting for the Cloud” is the theme for the upcoming Amazon Web Services User Group UK meetup (15th May, London). Intechnica’s Technical Director Andy Still will be there, and plans to talk about extending an application to create a caching platform for mobile access within AWS. If you’re in the London area this is definitely worth coming along to for the discussions and networking around AWS and cloud computing.
