Chapter 17: Designing Cloud-Based Solutions

Throughout this book, we have looked at a variety of cloud-related issues, from scalability, to security, to economics and business models, and more. In Chapter 18, “Coding Cloud-Based Applications,” we will build and deploy several simple cloud-based solutions. In this chapter, we look at many design considerations a developer should consider when designing a cloud-based solution.
