Top Five Perils Facing Cloud Computing

As cloud computing becomes more favorable among companies, they are forcing their applications out of the internal network into the cloud, causing them to be vulnerable to Web threats.

Want to get in-depth knowledge of the cloud platform design patterns of big-leaguers like Amazon, Google, IBM and Microsoft? Expert cloud developer and author Christopher Moyer provides case studies and example code in "Building Applications in the Cloud" that you can rely on to help you move past challenges you encounter as you move application development into the cloud.


Our partners at InformIT have contributed an excerpt from Moyer's book that guides the transformation of software into a service. The chapter:

  • Describes the tools used in the book
  • Explains how to sign up for Amazon Web Services such as EC2, S3, SimpleDB and SQS
  • Guides you through installing the boto Python library and setting up the boto environment
  • Helps you test your work
  • Provides an introduction to AWS databases


Rather than reinventing the wheel, read up on how the major players are providing improved performance, scalability and availability through proven cloud architectural patterns.
