Info on cloud computing

Posted 23 August 2013 - 03:31 AM

Hi everybody :)/>,
I'm a newbie, I don't know if it's the right place to put this question, but I tried to looking for a specific field and I didn't find it.
I'm doing a thesis for my university, and I have been looking for information on cloud computing.
For my introduction I need to find what was the job of the developers and system engineers/administrators before the advent of cloud computing.
For example:
  • write code to create your web-app
  • setup a Apache web server
  • setup a sequel database, and connect it with the Apache web server
  • some way to push out new versions of your code when you update your app
  • some way to monitoring your app so you can see if it's down, see how much traffic you're getting
  • ...


I would like to have all these information in more detail!
I need to find all the steps to bring out a web-app from scratch without the cloud computing.

Thanks for your help.

So... funny story.. there are plenty of folk who do _NOT_ use cloud computing what so ever.. I would even wager they are in the majority, so I would not approach this like some sort of esoteric job duty from a hundred years ago.

I imagine you can find how a webapp is created/deployed/maintained outlined in a whole mess of places.

Oh sorry :P, I didn't want to put that emphasis on my question.
Can you advice me one of them?
Maybe some place that can describe all the procedure in a easy way.
I'd like to understand all the steps without losing myself in technical details.

Thanks :)

Let me put it another way - I don't know what you are asking. Advise you of what one? You are asking for a super duper broad topic.

I understand, and I don't need it.
What I need it's to find some info to say:
if you are a company and you want to build a web-app you have to do the following steps:
  • what, short description
  • what, short description

But now, thanks to cloud computing and in particular thanks to PaaS, you don't need to worry anymore.
You can focus your attention to build your web-app.

Something like that. But I don't know where looking for these information... and so I can't put this concept in a formal way.

Sorry, maybe it's a difficult request... but I need some help, I don't know what looking for.
I have no time to go inside a super broad topic like this, only to write the introduction.

1. find a host or build your own server
1.a if you build your own
1.a.1. get an IP address through your ISP.
1.a.2. install IIS or WAMP/LAMP/XAMPP
1.a.3. configure according to their docs.
1.a.4. patch.
2. build the app
2.a. determine the goal
2.b. figure out milestones
2.c. get a design
2.d. pick a language
2.e. get an ide setup
2.f. code it
2.g. test
2.h. get final approval.
3. deploy
3.a. compile/save/build your app.
3.b. copy files to web accessible folder.
4. maintenance
4.a. monitor web logs from the server
4.b. user requests
4.c. monitor traffic.


Ah.. there. Since you are asking a whole mess of topics from 'how to build a web app' to 'how to build a server' to 'how to use server tool and apps'...

Right.. if you use that. Which not everyone does.. A clear minority do, but not the entire world. That translates into - "so you can stop talking like everyone is on the cloud". ;)
