developerworks cloud series

The developerworks cloud series explores the major types of cloud services and related software that you can use to build Web-scale systems.

In Part 1, learn how Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds provide basic services you can use to deploy and run your applications. The article also discusses how Eucalyptus can be used as an infrastructure to create public or private clouds.

In Part 2, learn about AppScale and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud computing. Explore the features and architecture of this virtual infrastructure. It’s a great way to test your Google App Engine applications on your local resources or virtualized cloud infrastructures, such as Amazon EC2 or Eucalyptus.
