Aneka Cloud Application Platform and Its Integration With Windows Azure
Aneka is an Application Platform-as-a-Service (Aneka PaaS) for Cloud Computing. It acts as a framework for building customized applications and deploying them on either public or private Clouds. One of the key features of Aneka is its support for provisioning resources on different public Cloud providers such as Amazon EC2, Windows Azure and GoGrid. In this paper, the authors will present Aneka platform and its integration with one of the public Cloud infrastructures, Windows Azure, which enables the usage of Windows Azure Compute Service as a resource provider of Aneka PaaS. The integration of the two platforms will allow users to leverage the power of Windows Azure Platform for Aneka Cloud Computing, employing a large number of compute instances to run their applications in parallel.
