About this book

Eliminate the guesswork involved in writing and deploying a cloud application. This step-by-step guide uses PHP to minimize the complexity of the code and setup, but the tools and techniques can be applied on any platform using any language. Everything that you need to jumpstart your application on the cloud is right here.
Clear diagrams, step-by-step configuration information, and complete code listings tell you everything you need to get off the ground and start developing your cloud application today. This book introduces several cloud architectures and technologies that will help you accelerate your application in the cloud. Chapters cover load-balanced clusters, database replication, caching configuration, content delivery networks, infinite-scale file storage, and cloud system administration. 
Cloud computing has dramatically changed the landscape of web hosting. Instead of spending weeks negotiating contracts for servers, new servers can be deployed with the push of a button, and your application can be resized almost instantly to meet today's needs. No matter what size of web application you are developing, you can benefit from modern cloud servers, and this is the guide to tell you how.

  • Create a basic cloud cluster
  • Work with Amazon and Google Cloud Platform in your PHP web application development
