Stateful applications (transactional, high-performance and data-intensive) are growing at an increasing pace. Solving scalability and high performance issues are a prime concern of application designers and developers. In this paper, the authors suggest a novel approach in which applications are divided into smaller processing units, and present a Market-Oriented Cloud Computing (MOCC) development and management platform with rapid application development and workload distribution capabilities as a practical implementation of this approach. They demonstrate the Manjrasoft Aneka, a Cloud Application Platform (CAP), leveraging these concepts and allowing easily developing Cloud ready applications on a private/public/hybrid cloud.
