Building Your Next Big Thing with Google Cloud Platform shows you how to take advantage of the Google Cloud Platform technologies to build all kinds of cloud-hosted software and services for both public and private consumption. Whether you need a simple virtual server to run your legacy application or you need to architect a sophisticated high-traffic web application, Cloud Platform provides all the tools and products required to create innovative applications and a robust infrastructure to manage them. Google is known for the scalability, reliability, and efficiency of its various online products, from Google Search to Gmail. And, the results are impressive. Google Search, for example, returns results literally within fractions of second. How is this possible? Google custom-builds both hardware and software, including servers, switches, networks, data centers, the operating system’s stack, application frameworks, applications, and APIs. Have you ever imagined what you could build if you were able to tap the same infrastructure that Google uses to create and manage its products? Now you can! Building Your Next Big Thing with Google Cloud Platform shows you how to take advantage of the Google Cloud Platform technologies to build all kinds of cloud-hosted software and services for both public and private consumption. Whether you need a simple virtual server to run your legacy application or you need to architect a sophisticated high-traffic web application, Cloud Platform provides all the tools and products required to create innovative applications and a robust infrastructure to manage them. Using this book as your compass, you can navigate your way through the Google Cloud Platform and turn your ideas into reality. The authors, both Google Developer Experts in Google Cloud Platform, systematically introduce various Cloud Platform products one at a time and discuss their strengths and scenarios where they are a suitable fit.

High-performance computing (HPC) describes the use of connected computing units to perform complex tasks. It relies on parallelization techniques and algorithms to synchronize these disparate units in order to perform faster than a single processor could, alone. Used in industries from medicine and research to military and higher education, this method of computing allows for users to complete complex data-intensive tasks. This field has undergone many changes over the past decade, and will continue to grow in popularity in the coming years. Innovative Research Applications in Next-Generation High Performance Computing aims to address the future challenges, advances, and applications of HPC and related technologies. As the need for such processors increases, so does the importance of developing new ways to optimize the performance of these supercomputers. This timely publication provides comprehensive information for researchers, students in ICT, program developers, military and government organizations, and business professionals.

By the end of this book, you will be better equipped to embrace the benefits of the burgeoning IIoT. Style and approach This book takes a comprehensive approach to the Industrial Internet, thoroughly acquainting the reader with the concepts and philosophy of the IIoT. It provides a basis for defining an IIoT solution in a thoughtful manner and creating what will be viewed as a successful project.

SOA with REST

Breakthrough approach, breakthrough techniques: the first comprehensive tutorial and reference for deploying RESTful services to support SOA • •SOA and REST have been viewed as radically different paradigms: this is the first book to show how they can be combined to solve crucial problems and deliver greater business value. •Presents comprehensive case studies of the highly successful integration of contemporary REST frameworks and SOA platforms. •Covers both the theory and practice of RESTful services in the SOA context. Every major development platform now supports the creation of SOA-based solutions. Increasingly, however, the traditional, SOAP-based method of building SOA services has been challenged by a simpler, lighter alternative: REST. The two paradigms have sometimes been viewed as competitive, and many developers are comfortable with one or the other, but not both. However, REST and SOA can be used together - and, as this start-to-finish tutorial demonstrates, organizations can achieve powerful benefits by combining them. Renowned SOA expert Thomas Erl and IBM Consulting IT Architect Raj Balasubramanian begin by explaining the theory and techniques underlying REST, and then introducing real-life implementations of RESTful services using multiple contemporary technologies. The authors compare REST and service-oriented principles, showing how traditional Web services and RESTful services differ, and dispelling common myths and misconceptions about REST and SOA. Next, they present a series of REST-inspired SOA design patterns, supported by case studies that demonstrate how REST and SOA can be converged using existing technologies and products, and what the benefits are of doing so. Thomas Erl (Richmond BC) founded SOA Systems Inc., a company specializing in vendor-agnostic SOA training, certification, and strategic consulting services. Erl speaks and instructs widely, and has delivered many workshops and keynote speeches. His work has been published in publications including The Wall Street Journal. Raj Balasubramanian (Cedar Creek TX), Consulting IT Architect for IBM Software Group, works on customer engagements delivering application and infrastructure-related projects. As co author of an upcoming SOA with Java book, he contributed chapters on portal technology and REST service design and development. He recently developed REST patterns for, SOA Design Patterns.
