1. INTRODUCTION
A database can be accessed by the clients via the internet from the cloud database service provider and is deliverable to the users when they demand it. In other words, cloud database is designed for virtualized computer environment. The cloud database is implemented using cloud computing that means utilizing the software and hardware resources of the cloud computing service provider. Cloud computing is growing at a very high pace in the IT industry around the world. Many companies have started moving towards cloud computing and accessing their data from cloud database. A survey has…...

...Clouds We can see clouds in the sky; it is like the white cotton in the sky. It is a visible mass droplet or ice particle in the air and is caused by condensation. Precipitation occurs from clouds but not all precipitation is from all clouds, there is no precipitation without clouds. Clouds can absorb solar energy which means it helps to lessen the heat. Without clouds days would have been much warmer and nights much colder. Majority of clouds are found in troposphere. Clouds are composed of other substances such as methane, ammonia, and sulfuric acid. The different types of clouds are cumulus, stratus, cirrus, and nimbus. Cumulus clouds are a type of low-level cloud that can have noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. Cumulo means "heap" in Latin. They are often described as "puffy" or "cotton-like" in appearance, and are generally less than 6,500 feet (2,000 m) in altitude. Stratus is a cloud belonging to a class characterized by horizontal layering with a uniform base, as opposed to convective clouds that are as tall or taller than wide. Stratus is used to describe flat, hazy, featureless clouds of low altitude varying in color from dark gray to nearly white. Stratus clouds may produce a light drizzle or snow. A "cloudy day" usually features a sky filled with stratus clouds obscuring the disk of the sun. These clouds are essentially above-ground fog formed either through the lifting of morning fog or when cold air moves at low altitudes over a......

...What is The Cloud? Heather INF103 May 10, 2012 What is the Cloud? ………………………………………………………………………… Examples of these applications are Gmail, Google Docs, and Facebook. You are using the cloud anytime you store information, pictures, or music anywhere on the web. Cloud computing is taking a lot of computers and putting them together into a pool of resources. It is a key way companies are streamlining their operations. Cloud computing is still early in its development Collaborating to Compete (2010). The cloud is a less expensive, less time consuming, and more user-friendly way to store data, store software and collaborate. Cloud technology is stream-lining the way we use computers and the internet. Techs biggest names are offering cloud services and new companies are starting every day. To fully understand all that the cloud offers, let’s take a look back and see how information was stored, software was consumed, and teams collaborated. Data storage has moved from file cabinets, to mainframes, to PCs, now to servers, and increasingly these servers are in the cloud. -Paul Otellini CEO of Intel Collaborating to Complete (2010). Paper files we kept in a filing cabinet. Then computers came along and data entry clerks began storing records on a mainframe. Then desktops had more memory so we used it. To make the memory on the desktops last longer we stored information on floppy disks then compact disks. Administrative assistants would be charged with organizing these......

...An Operating System for Multicore and Clouds: Mechanisms and Implementation David Wentzlaff wentzlaf@csail.mit.edu Kevin Modzelewski kmod@csail.mit.edu Charles Gruenwald III Nathan Beckmann cg3@csail.mit.edu beckmann@csail.mit.edu Adam Belay Lamia Youseff lyouseff@csail.mit.edu abelay@csail.mit.edu Jason Miller Anant Agarwal jasonm@csail.mit.edu agarwal@csail.mit.edu Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA 02139 ABSTRACT Cloud computers and multicore processors are two emerging classes of computational hardware that have the potential to provide unprecedented compute capacity to the average user. In order for the user to effectively harness all of this computational power, operating systems (OSes) for these new hardware platforms are needed. Existing multicore operating systems do not scale to large numbers of cores, and do not support clouds. Consequently, current day cloud systems push much complexity onto the user, requiring the user to manage individual Virtual Machines (VMs) and deal with many system-level concerns. In this work we describe the mechanisms and implementation of a factored operating system named fos. fos is a single system image operating system across both multicore and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud systems. fos tackles OS scalability challenges by factoring the OS into its component system services. Each system service is further factored into a collection of......

The Cloud

...One hot summer morning a little Cloud rose out of the sea and floated lightly and happily across the blue sky. Far below lay the earth, dry, from drought. The little Cloud could see the poor people of the earth working and suffering in the hot fields, while the cloud floated on the morning breeze, without a care. "Oh, if I could only help the poor people down there!" she thought. "If I could but make their work easier! And as the day passed, and the Cloud became larger, this wish to do something for the people of earth was ever greater in her heart. On earth it grew hotter and hotter; the sun burned down so fiercely that the people were fainting in its rays; it seemed as if they must die of heat, and yet they were obliged to go on with their work, for they were very poor. Sometimes they stood and looked up at the Cloud, as if they were praying, and saying, "Ah, if you could help us!" "I will help you; I will!" said the Cloud. And she began to sink softly down toward the earth. The thought made her suddenly marvelously big and strong and powerful. Never had she dreamed that she could be so big. Like a mighty angel of blessing she stood above the earth, and lifted her head and spread her wings far over the fields and woods. She was so great, so majestic, that men and animals were awestruck at the sight; the trees and the grasses bowed before her; yet all the earth creatures felt that she meant them well. "Yes, I will help you," cried the Cloud once more. "Take me to......

...Clouds Jessica Pixley Weather and Climate Robert Morris University Clouds are an astonishing part of nature and help give us an idea of the current state of the weather. Clouds can vary dramatically in shape, size, color and position. Early in the nineteenth century French naturalist Jean-Baptitse Lamarck had started the first system to classify clouds which was polished by a naturalist named Luke Howard shortly after. Not until 1887 was Howards system finalized by Ralph Abercromby and Hugo Hildebrandson into the system we use today. This system entails four major cloud groups and ten basic types of clouds based on their appearance and position in the sky. The four groups are high clouds, middle clouds, low clouds, and clouds with vertical development. The first cloud in the high cloud group is the Cirrus cloud. Cirrus clouds are formed by the freezing of water droplets. They can be found normally above twenty thousand feet. These clouds generally appear white or light grey in color. Strong western winds blow these clouds into thin wispy strands known as “mares’ tails”. In my opinion, these clouds look like they are painted into the sky. When cirrus clouds are present expect a nice pleasant day ahead. The cirrocumulus is next in the high cloud group. These clouds generally are seen less than the cirrus cloud. These clouds are formed by ice crystals as well. They are also found above twenty thousand feet. If you hold you hand out and up at the sky these clouds will......

...Cloud Clients for Security and Compliance Proper data and endpoint security is a necessity in the financial services data environment. Cloud client solutions at end-points formerly occupied by PCs can increase data security, governance, and compliance through a centrally stored data base and managed infrastructure. Cloud clients can be configured to support the latest identity management and access control policies and best practices though the use of two-factor authentication. Cloud clients can also be centrally configured to restrict user access to specific resources, and access rights can be changed without having to service or modify the desktop in any way. By using cloud clients, end points and individual access can be completely locked down as needed by the IT administrator through centralized control of the virtual machines hosted by the servers. All of the data in a cloud client/virtual server computing environment resides on the servers themselves...not at the cloud client end-points. Data is prevented from leaving the premises on USB memory sticks, CDs, or other portable media, for example, since no data resides on the cloud client desktop device. Storing all data in centralized data centers greatly improves security and can also help ensure compliance with data privacy regulations as required under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and other federal and state regulations. Since all data resides in the data center, automatic information back-up can be......

...year. During an executive leadership meeting, you were told that your company will be merging with a multinational company of equal size and you will be responsible for developing a project plan to strategically integrate all systems, including databases and infrastructure. The Chief Executive Officer has given you sixty (60) days to deliver an information technology project plan in anticipation of the company merger. Your company will be expanding from one (1) floor to three (3) floors within six (6) months. Since this merger will be bringing two (2) fairly equal-sized companies together under one roof, the infrastructure must be redesigned to accommodate the increased needs. Your company currently uses operational systems and relational databases but desires to expand into data warehousing. All information technology (hardware and software) must be redesigned to meet organizational needs. The solution should be implemented in either a hosted solution, on-site solution, or a hybrid model. The CEO is expecting you to integrate different technologies from different solution providers and incorporate industry best practices in connection with the development of technological systems. In addition, the CEO is extremely interested in cloud technologies and virtualization but is leery of security issues; however, the CEO is sure that you will implement proper security protocols. The company currently consists of twenty five (25) employees but is expected to increase to sixty five......

Databases

...4600-01 INTRO TO DATABASES CLOUD DATABASES SUBMITTED BY: ALICIA RUCKER INSTRUCTOR: DR. LUIS VIDAL SPRING 2016 Abstract A cloud database is a database that typically runs on a cloud computing platform. Users can run databases on the cloud independently, using a virtual machine image, or they can purchase access to a database service, maintained by a cloud database provider. There is a proposed 5 layer cloud architecture. The External Layer, which is the first, is closest to the user. The second layer is the Conceptual Middleware Layer. The third layer is the Conceptual Layer. In this layer programming techniques, transaction management, query processing and optimization are considered. The fourth layer is the Physical Middleware Layer, where interoperability between various platforms is considered. Last, there is the Physical Layer which is concerned with how data is stored and accessibility. A cloud database management system is a distributed database that delivers computing as a service instead of a product. It is the sharing of resources, software, and information between multiply devices over a network which is mostly the internet. An example of this is Software as a Service or SaaS. SaaS is an application that is delivered through the browser to customers. A database management system is a software package with computer programs that control the creation, maintenance, and use of a database. It allows organizations to conveniently develop databases for......

...1. Describe the 3 different Cloud Services available to corporations today? The cloud is in huge transformation in the business industry that increases the compute capacity and networking capacities. The computer industry is growing in an up-to-date fashion and therefore, cloud computation is the latest fashion that is changing rapidly and it is very difficult to understand cloud and its different offers or services in the corporation world. As Andrew McAfee has focused three important services, which cloud provides. These services are divided into three categories such as: 1. Infrastructure as a service: The IAAS is the most basic service and its users are technology companies and use it as a server in the cloud. These tech companies are expert in computing in this IAAS system. They are very expert in using this service, but not well prepared to install or maintain it. 2. Platform as a service: This is another basic service used in the cloud platform, which the companies use to develop the software for its existing customers with customization of its customers. In this service, various programming languages are used to develop a software such as; Java, .NET, Python etc. that help in writing the codes in a small time period and allow the customers to cover transaction. 3. Software as a service: It is most the important service, which is used solely by the cloud itself without using any hardware or software in the data center. It has become successful in salesforce.com...
