Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using storage and database services, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
Well now it's the time when we begin to delve into what the cloud actually does. In a nutshell …cloud computing brings you applications so you can view, manipulate and share data. …Many of the applications you may be familiar with on your desktop computer also exist in …cloud computing; think about Office 365 for example. The only real difference in cloud …computing is how you interact with these applications and the most common interactions will be with …storage and database functionality. …We'll begin with database storage, and these are typically repositories for your information …with links built in to make your information more searchable. The information will typically …be spread out over physically dispersed hardware, think about Amazon Simple DB for example, …which does present a number of pros and cons.…
One pro is what happens when there's an issue with one database system, because information …is dispersed, only a fragment of your information is affected, not the entire database. …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
