Web Based Application and Cloud Computing

Web based applicationWeb based application is the driving force behind cloud computing advance today (2014). What are the relationship between web based application and cloud computing ?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is at the front of cloud computing, because it allows web based application to be hosted on its platform. By using the right pricing system, AWS gain a lot of traction from developers because it allows web based application to scale automatically.

By scaling and right pricing, it means that web based application are charged for resources usage they actually used, not at peak hours. Basically the application is charged a regular amount for regular usage. But should the application goes viral, by utilizing AWS, the application can handle the extra workload automatically, minimizing downtime. Naturally the developer is charged extra for those extra workload. But, it is worth every penny because those extra workload usually equals extra income for the developer.

And cloud computing applications are only going to increase because the applications are limitless.

The applications of cloud computing are practically limitless. With the right middleware, a cloud computing system could execute all the programs a normal computer could run. Potentially, everything from generic word processing software to customized computer programs designed for a specific company could work on a cloud computing system.
