Using a simple Web application as an example, this chapter demonstrates the basic steps for deploying applications to cloud services. 4.1 POPULAR CLOUD SERVICES Cloud services provide the computing resources (storage, network, and computation) in a virtualized fashion to consumers. The eventual success of a cloud service is determined by the applications supported and the improvements made to the applications in comparison to a traditional computing service (Dastjerdi, Garg, and Buyya 2011). Improvements can normally be achieved in application performance, cost savings, availability, stability, security, accountability, and other aspects required by specic applications (Emeakaroha et al. 2011). A well-designed process for migrating or deploying applications onto a cloud service is critical to maximize the improvements (Afgan et al. 2011).
