such as word processing. Mozilla Thunderbird or Entourage are making use of cloud email servers. The consumer's computer may contain very little software or data (perhaps a minimal operating system and web browser only). Consumer benefits are that software no longer has to be installed and is automatically updated but savings in terms of dollars is yet to be seen. a company owned email. without actually possessing the software or hardware. The development of Local Area Networks allowed for a system in which multiple CPUs and storage devices may be organized to increase the performance of the entire system. cloud computing fundamentally allows for a functional separation between the resources used and the user's computer. gas. videos. Centralized and standardized utilities freed individuals from the difficulties of generating electricity or pumping water. serving as little more than a display terminal connected to the Internet. Since the cloud is the underlying delivery mechanism. this translates to a reduced cost in software distribution to providers who still use hard mediums such as DVDs. Users or clients can submit a task. Users can store and access personal files such as music. Hence. and water. In many companies employees and company departments are bringing a flood of consumer technology into the workplace and this raises legal compliance and security concerns for the corporation. Yahoo. for example. Hotmail. Consumers now routinely use data intensive applications driven by cloud technology which were previously unavailable due to cost and deployment complexity. usually residing outside the local network. cloud based applications and services may support any type of software application or service in use today. An analogy to explain cloud computing is that of public utilities such as electricity.Cloud computing 1 Cloud computing Cloud computing refers to the provision of computational resources on demand via a computer network. such as Google. . and files. pictures. applications. The principle behind the cloud is that any computer connected to the Internet is connected to the same pool of computing power. desktop applications which connect to cloud email can also be considered cloud applications. to the service provider. in an remote datacenter. and bookmarks or play games or do word processing on a remote server rather than physically carrying around a storage medium such as a DVD or thumb drive. In an extension to that concept. Cloud Computing visual diagram In the past. Even those who use web-based email such as Gmail. With Cloud computing. or even an e-mail client program such as Outlook. All of the development and maintenance tasks involved in doing so was alleviated. A common shorthand for a provided cloud computing service (or even an aggregation of all existing cloud services) is "The Cloud". both data and software had to be stored and processed on or near the computer. Evolution. The term "software as a service" is sometimes used to describe programs offered through "The Cloud".

thus the client need not purchase expensive hardware or software to handle the task.[5] Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet. and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.[4] This may take the form of web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser as if they were programs installed locally on their own computers. or even a smartphone. consumption. The Cloud may appear as a single point of access for consumers' computing needs. and it typically involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources[2] [3] It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet. Technical description The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a concise and specific definition: Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient. hence the term "software as a service" (SaaS). Cloud services may be designed to work equally well with Linux. such as backing up of large amounts of data. notable examples include the iTunes Store.[6] . depending on the speed of the Internet connection. on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e. which are accessed from a Web browser. or expensive for an individual user or a small company to accomplish. and the iPhone App Store. cloud services have changed to allow access from any device connected to the Internet.Cloud computing 2 How it works Cloud computing utilizes the network as a means to connect the user to resources that are based in the 'cloud'. The 'cloud' may be accessed via the Internet or a company network. Computation and storage is divided among the remote computers in order to handle large volumes of both. word processing. and storage services that do not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services. and delivery model for IT services based on Internet protocols. Commercial offerings may be required to meet service level agreements (SLAs). In some cases. With 'cloud computing'. Parallels to this concept can be drawn with the electricity grid.. The outcome of the processing task is returned to the client over the network. in other cases entire business applications have been coded using web based technologies such as AJAX. The service provider may pool the processing power of multiple remote computers in "the cloud" to achieve the task. while the compute resources are consolidated at a remote data center location. applications. as in telecommuting. especially with limited computing resources and funds. networks. where end-users consume power without needing to understand the component devices or infrastructure required to provide the service. such as netbooks which were created with cloud computing in mind. allowing mobile workers access on-the-go. software. These tasks would normally be difficult. while the business software and data are stored on servers at a remote location.g. time consuming. or computationally intensive work. servers. with a connection to the Internet.[1] Cloud computing provides computation. or a company network. but specific terms are less often negotiated by smaller companies. Cloud computing describes a new supplement. clients only require a simple computer. data access. as opposed to actually possessing them. or both. With smartphones and tablets on the rise. and extending the reach of business services provided by outsourcing. in order to make requests to and receive data from the cloud. legacy applications (line of business applications which until now have been prevalent in thick client Windows computing) are delivered via a screen sharing technology such as Citrix XenApp. storage. Mac and Windows platforms. Most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through shared data-centers.

This resembles the Unix philosophy of having multiple programs each doing one thing well and working together over universal interfaces. in a reciprocal manner. The back end of the cloud computing architecture is the ‘cloud’ itself.[8] 3. This is in contrast to a model in which the processing takes place in one or more specific servers that are known. 7."[7] 2." 4. whereby a 'super and virtual computer' is composed of a cluster of networked. usually web services and 3-tier architecture. The front end is the part seen by the client. such as electricity. servers and data storage devices. the computer user. as a metered service similar to a traditional public utility.Cloud computing 3 Overview Comparisons Cloud computing shares characteristics with: 1. The two most significant components of cloud computing architecture are known as the front end and the back end. known or static place(s). Client–server model – client–server computing refers broadly to any distributed application that distinguishes between service providers (servers) and service requesters (clients).[9] 5. Peer-to-peer – distributed architecture without the need for central coordination. i. enterprise resource planning. This includes the client’s network (or computer) and the applications used to access the cloud via a user interface such as a web browser. Mainframe computer — powerful computers used mainly by large organizations for critical applications. Architecture Cloud architecture. typically bulk data processing such as census. Service-oriented computing – Cloud computing provides services related to computing while. Complexity is controlled and the resulting systems are more manageable than their monolithic counterparts.[11] Characteristics The key characteristic of cloud computing is that the computing is "in the cloud". Autonomic computing — "computer systems capable of self-management. service-oriented computing consists of the computing techniques that operate on software-as-a-service.[12] the [[systems architecture]] of the software systems involved in the delivery of cloud computing. Utility computing — the "packaging of computing resources. typically involves multiple cloud components communicating with each other over application programming interfaces.e. All the other concepts mentioned are supplementary or complementary to this concept. that is. and financial transaction processing. . industry and consumer statistics. the processing (and the related data) is not in a specified. such as computation and storage."[10] 6. loosely coupled computers acting in concert to perform very large tasks. with participants being at the same time both suppliers and consumers of resources (in contrast to the traditional client–server model). Grid computing — "a form of distributed computing and parallel computing. comprising various computers.

Details are abstracted from end-users. IBM and a number of universities embarked on a large-scale cloud computing research project.[18] [19] The first exposure of the term Cloud Computing to public media is by GoogleEx CEO Eric Schmidt at SES San Jose 2006. just to leave room for occasional spikes. those who use IT services and those who sell them"[25] and observed that "[o]rganisations are switching from company-owned hardware and software assets to per-use service-based models" so that the "projected shift to cloud computing . became the first open-source software for deploying private and hybrid clouds. were thoroughly explored in Douglas Parkhill's 1966 book. Quora.[24] By mid-2008. who until the 1990s primarily offered dedicated point-to-point data circuits. The cloud symbol was used to denote the demarcation point between that which was the responsibility of the provider. Amazon initiated a new product development effort to provide cloud computing to external customers.[21] In 2007. efforts were focused on providing QoS guarantees (as required by real-time interactive applications) to cloud-based infrastructures.[14] Cloud computing is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization.[20] It was reported in 2011 that Amazon has thousands of corporate customers. In early 2008.[22] In early 2008. AWS API-compatible platform for deploying private clouds. autonomic and utility computing.[17] After the dot-com bubble. and that which was the responsibility of the user. online. when John McCarthy opined that "computation may someday be organized as a public utility.. and for the federation of clouds. in the framework of the IRMOS European Commission-funded project.[23] In the same year. government and community forms. will result in dramatic growth in IT products in some areas and significant reductions in other areas. illusion of infinite supply). The actual term "cloud" borrows from telephony in that telecommunications companies. Amazon played a key role in the development of cloud computing by modernizing their data centers."[26] . a maker of game tools for Web publishers. a site for news-sharing and BigDoor. provided as a utility. began offering Virtual Private Network (VPN) services with comparable quality of service but at a much lower cost. like most computer networks. a question-and-answer service.[16] The first scholarly use of the term “cloud computing” was in a 1997 lecture by Ramnath Chellappa. or control over. OpenNebula. a location-based social networking site. Google. Having found that the new cloud architecture resulted in significant internal efficiency improvements whereby small. and launched Amazon Web Service (AWS) on a utility computing basis in 2006. based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network. who no longer have need for expertise in. which. Amongst them also include many corporations that live on Amazon's web services. fast-moving "two-pizza teams" could add new features faster and more easily. were using as little as 10% of their capacity at any one time. they were able to utilize their overall network bandwidth more effectively. By switching traffic to balance utilization as they saw fit. Eucalyptus became the first open-source. The Challenge of the Computer Utility.Cloud computing 4 History The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet.. Gartner saw an opportunity for cloud computing "to shape the relationship among consumers of IT services. the comparison to the electricity industry and the use of public. the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them. service-oriented architecture. Cloud computing extends this boundary to cover servers as well as the network infrastructure. private.[15] The underlying concept of cloud computing dates back to the 1960s. Reddit.[13] and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents." Almost all the modern-day characteristics of cloud computing (elastic provision. including Foursquare. from large ones like Pfizer and Netflix to start-ups. enhanced in the RESERVOIR European Commission-funded project.

users can connect from anywhere.[18] • Reliability is improved if multiple redundant sites are used. user access to security audit logs may be difficult or impossible.[29] • Device and location independence[30] enable users to access systems using a web browser regardless of their location or what device they are using (e. which makes well designed cloud computing suitable for business continuity and disaster recovery. mobile phone). but concerns can persist about loss of control over certain sensitive data..[34] However.[29] • Multi-tenancy enables sharing of resources and costs across a large pool of users thus allowing for: • Centralization of infrastructure in locations with lower costs (such as real estate.[33] Security is often as good as or better than under traditional systems. and the lack of security for stored kernels.[32] increased security-focused resources.[27] • Application Programming Interface (API) accessibility to software that enables machines to interact with cloud software in the same way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers. Cloud computing systems typically use REST-based APIs.[28] This ostensibly lowers barriers to entry. As infrastructure is off-site (typically provided by a third-party) and accessed via the Internet.. electricity. PC. • Maintenance of cloud computing applications is easier. without users having to engineer for peak loads. etc. They are easier to support and to improve.) • Peak-load capacity increases (users need not engineer for highest possible load-levels) • Utilization and efficiency improvements for systems that are often only 10–20% utilized. self-service basis near real-time. Private cloud installations are in part motivated by users' desire to retain control over the infrastructure and avoid losing control of information security. as infrastructure is typically provided by a third-party and does not need to be purchased for one-time or infrequent intensive computing tasks.[31] • Scalability via dynamic ("on-demand") provisioning of resources on a fine-grained. etc.g.Cloud computing 5 Key characteristics • Agility improves with users' ability to rapidly and inexpensively re-provision technological infrastructure resources. Pricing on a utility computing basis is fine-grained with usage-based options and fewer IT skills are required for implementation (in-house). • Performance is monitored. the complexity of security is greatly increased when data is distributed over a wider area or greater number of devices and in multi-tenant systems which are being shared by unrelated users.[29] • Security could improve due to centralization of data. . because they do not need to be installed on each user's computer. • Cost is claimed to be greatly reduced and in a public cloud delivery model capital expenditure is converted to operational expenditure. In addition. and consistent and loosely coupled architectures are constructed using web services as the system interface. as the changes reach the clients instantly. in part because providers are able to devote resources to solving security issues that many customers cannot afford.

People tend to use the terms "SaaS" and "cloud" interchangeably.

Combined cloud Two clouds that have been joined together are more correctly called a "combined cloud". Another perspective on deploying a web application in the cloud is using Hybrid Web Hosting. In addition it can be economically attractive as the resources (storage. IBM. whereby resources are dynamically provisioned on a fine-grained. The idea was based upon direct comparison with other industries (e. via web applications/web services. from an off-site third-party provider who bills on a fine-grained utility computing basis. . security and privacy concerns that results from the mixed delivery methods of IT services.g.[35] [46] [47] [48] Deployment models Public cloud Public cloud or external cloud describes cloud computing in the traditional mainstream sense. the electricity industry) and the extensive use of hybrid supply models to balance and mitigate risks.[51] A hybrid storage cloud uses a combination of public and private storage clouds. workstations) utilized and shared in the community are already exploited and have reached their return of investment. Hybrid storage clouds are often [52] useful for archiving and backup functions. the newest catch-phrase has become “hybrid cloud computing.”[50] Hybrid cloud is also called hybrid delivery by the major vendors including HP. self-service basis over the Internet.[49] Hybrid cloud and hybrid IT delivery The main responsibility of the IT department is to deliver services to the business. Oracle and VMware who offer technology to manage the complexity in managing the performance. security and/or policy compliance.[54] By integrating multiple cloud services users may be able to ease the transition to public cloud services while avoiding issues such as PCI compliance. allowing local data to be replicated to a public cloud. cloud-specific operating systems and combined offerings. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a single tenant). where the hosting infrastructure is a mix between cloud hosting and managed dedicated servers – this is most commonly achieved as part of a web cluster in which some of the nodes are running on real physical hardware and some are running on cloud server instances.[29] Community cloud A community cloud may be established where several organizations have similar requirements and seek to share infrastructure so as to realize some of the benefits of cloud computing. including multi-core processors.[55] Private cloud Douglas Parkhill first described the concept of a "private computer utility" in his 1966 book The Challenge of the Computer Utility. With the proliferation of cloud computing (both private and public) and the fact that IT departments must also deliver services via traditional. Examples of community clouds include Google's "Gov Cloud". A combined cloud environment consisting of multiple internal and/or external providers[53] "will be typical for most enterprises". in-house methods. This option may offer a higher level of privacy.Cloud computing 7 Server The servers layer consists of computer hardware and/or computer software products that are specifically designed for the delivery of cloud services.

The Intercloud scenario aims to address such situations. interoperability. the cloud of clouds. the ability to recover from failure. Such form of pay-for-use may introduce new business opportunities among cloud providers if they manage to go beyond theoretical framework. as well as the study and applied research of the approach. legal issues.Cloud computing "Private cloud" and "internal cloud" have been described as neologisms. strategization. and maintenance of cloud computing. but are in fact an implementation of a technology subset: the basic concept of virtualized computing. virtualize the resources according to the requirements of the customer and expose them as virtual servers. and people who require their data to be hosted buy or lease storage capacity from them and use it for their storage needs.[56] [57] Enterprise IT organizations use their own private cloud(s) for mission critical and other operational systems to protect critical infrastructures. it could not be able to satisfy further requests for service allocations sent from its clients.[64] The Intercloud scenario is based on the key concept that each single cloud does not have infinite physical resources. It is a maturing and evolving discipline to facilitate the adoption. and interdisciplinary approach to the ideation. hybrid models still exist despite the formation of reasonably well-functioning markets and the ability to combine multiple providers. quantifiable. These (typically virtualization automation) products offer the ability to host applications or virtual machines in a company's own set of hosts. [58] Therefore. Even within modern utility industries. vendor's lock-ins. Hosting companies operate large data centers. disciplined. The Intercloud The Intercloud[59] is an interconnected global "cloud of clouds"[60] [61] and an extension of the Internet "network of networks" on which it is based. Some vendors have used the terms to describe offerings that emulate cloud computing on private networks. and manage them" and thus do not benefit from lower up-front capital costs and less hands-on management. operationalization. operation.[62] The term was first used in the context of cloud computing in 2007 when Kevin Kelly stated that "eventually we'll have the intercloud.

These provide the benefits of utility computing – shared hardware costs. and in theory. but the concepts themselves pre-date the term cloud by 40 years.". The data center operators. for all intents and purposes. i. development. Cloud storage Cloud storage is a model of networked computer data storage where data is stored on multiple virtual servers. If a cloud saturates the computational and storage resources of its virtualization infrastructure. the application of engineering to cloud. Physically. commoditization. leading towards a cloud ecosystem. standardization. rather than being hosted on dedicated servers.[54] essentially "[lacking] the economic model that makes cloud computing such an intriguing concept". quality of service. . industrialization. productization. which the customers can themselves manage. 8 Cloud engineering Cloud engineering is the application of a systematic. the resource may span across multiple servers. Private clouds have attracted criticism because users "still have to buy. build. each cloud can use the computational and storage resources of the virtualization infrastructures of other clouds.

the number of trademark filings covering cloud computing brands. lawfully or unlawfully.[72] Google[73] and Microsoft[74] ). the Data Protection Directive in the EU and the credit card industry's PCI DSS. This concept has been subsequently used many times over the last 40 years and is identical to the Intercloud.[69] Customers in the EU contracting with cloud providers established outside the EU/EEA have to adhere to the EU regulations on export of personal data. calling the requirement "unduly restrictive of competition. 116 cloud computing trademarks were filed. Department of Interior. but this has been criticised on the grounds that the hand-picked set of goals and standards determined by the auditor and the auditee are often not disclosed and can vary widely.S."[66] Compliance In order to obtain compliance with regulations including FISMA.com. cloud computing trademark filings increased by 483% between 2008 and 2009. providers such as Amazon still cater to major markets (typically the United States and the European Union) by deploying local infrastructure and allowing customers to select "availability zones. On October 29. Amazon. which opened up a bid for software that required that bidders use Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite.[65] While there have been efforts (such as US-EU Safe Harbor) to "harmonize" the legal environment.[70] Many providers also obtain SAS 70 Type II certification (e. As companies sought to better position themselves for cloud computing branding and marketing efforts. Other legal cases may shape the use of cloud computing by the public sector. under non-disclosure agreement. The "Notice of Allowance" the company received in July 2008 was canceled in August. can monitor at will.S. and the greater powers it gives to telecommunication companies to monitor user activity. the prevalence of open standards and open source may have an impact on the way that public entities choose to select vendors. and thus. the "Challenge of the Computer Utility".[75] Providers typically make this information available on request. working with AT&T.[80] . and trademark [78] analysts predict that over 500 such marks could be filed during 2010. Instances such as the secret NSA program.[71] Salesforce.g. HIPAA and SOX in the United States."[79] Scholars have pointed out that. which recorded over 10 million phone calls between American citizens. 2010.[76] Legal In March 2007. the communication and data stored between the user and the host company. and Verizon. resulting in a formal rejection of the trademark application less than a week later. In 2009. users may have to adopt community or hybrid deployment modes which are typically more expensive and may offer restricted benefits. This is how Google is able to "manage and meet additional government policy requirements beyond FISMA"[67] [68] and Rackspace Cloud are able to claim PCI compliance. Since 2007.Cloud computing The concept of a competitive utility computing market which combined many computer utilities together was originally described by Douglas Parkhill in his 1966 book. causes uncertainty among privacy advocates. Trademark 77139082 [77]) in the United States. Dell applied to trademark the term "cloud computing" (U. Google filed a lawsuit against the U. goods and services has increased at an almost exponential rate. 9 Issues Privacy The cloud model has been criticized by privacy advocates for the greater ease in which the companies hosting the cloud services control. beginning in 2005. Google sued.

businesses are also worried about acceptable levels of availability and performance of applications hosted in the cloud. the environmental effects will be [92] Sweden and Switzerland. such as Finland.[87] Organizations have been formed in order to provide standards for a better future in cloud computing services. Sustainability and siting Although cloud computing is often assumed to be a form of "green computing".[82] Open standards Most cloud providers expose APIs which are typically well-documented (often under a Creative Commons license[83] ) but also unique to their implementation and thus not interoperable. SmartBay.[86] Issues barring the adoption of cloud computing are due in large part to the private and public sectors unease surrounding the external management of security based services. In areas where climate favors natural cooling and renewable electricity is readily available. a version of GPLv3 intended to close a perceived legal loophole associated with free software designed to be run over a network. there is as of yet no published study to substantiate this assumption. [94] . to attract cloud computing data centers.[81] In November 2007.[88] Availability and performance In addition to concerns about security. is being developed using cloud computing. marine research infrastructure of sensors and computational technology. the Free Software Foundation released the Affero General Public License.Cloud computing 10 Open source Open source software has provided the foundation for many cloud computing implementations.[93] are trying more moderate. Thus countries with favorable conditions. It is the very nature of cloud computing based services. This delivers great incentive amongst cloud computing service providers in producing a priority in building and maintaining strong management of secure services. an emerging approach to shared infrastructure in which large pools of systems are linked together to provide IT services.[89] There are also concerns about a cloud provider shutting down for financial or legal reasons. The Open Cloud Consortium (OCC)[85] is working to develop consensus on early cloud computing standards and practices. Some vendors have adopted others' APIs[84] and there are a number of open standards under development. one prominent example being the Hadoop framework. private or public. including the OGF's Open Cloud Computing Interface. Security The relative security of cloud computing services is a contentious issue which may be delaying its adoption. that promote external management of provided services.[91] Siting the servers affects the environmental effects of cloud computing. One organization in particular. the Cloud Security Alliance is a non-profit organization formed to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. which has happened in a [90] number of cases.

Animoto is a web application that produces videos from user-selected photos, video clips and music. Animoto analyzes the provided photos, video clips and music, using them to generate a video similar to a trailer. According to the website, the song is analyzed, producing a unique video every time. The site also claims that no two videos are ever the same.[1] [2] By November 2009, 1 million users had registered at Animoto. Their iPhone application has been installed 300,000 times and two million Facebook users have used the Animoto Facebook application.[3] One year prior, in August 2008, 250,000 users in 150 countries had been registered with Animoto.com.[4] About 10% of users who register at the site end up paying money, so the company has had cash flow since October 2008.[5] Investors of Animoto include Amazon.com, Bruce Livingstone, the founder of iStockphoto & Madrona Venture Group.[3] Some of the founders include former producers at MTV, VH1, Comedy Central & ABC. Animoto utilizes the post-production skills some of the founding team honed while working in television in order to produce online content that is on-par with content found on TV & in film.[2] [6]

Animoto was founded on August 2006, and launched as a website on August 14, 2007. Animoto is based in New York, with an office in San Francisco. While attending the SXSW Interactive Festival in March 2008, Animoto launched their own Facebook application.[7] It became a popular way for users to showcase their photos on the social network. The Animoto Facebook application experienced so much viral growth in April 2008, that it became one of Amazon Web Services's cloud computing success stories. By mid-April, Animoto's Facebook application had nearly 750,000 people sign up in three days. At the peak, almost 25,000 people tried Animoto in a single hour.[8] Amazon Web Services's ability to meet the demand of Animoto's viral Facebook application resulted in Amazon.com's eventual investment in Animoto. Jeff Bezos includes Animoto in speeches he gives regarding Amazon Web Services.[9]

Animoto Along with releasing the Animoto Facebook application in March 2008, Animoto was also a YouTube launch partner for YouTube's API. Animoto was integrated with YouTube, allowing users to export Animoto videos directly to YouTube easily.[10] As of August 2009, nearly 250,000 videos have been uploaded to YouTube. On June 2008, Animoto introduced DVD-quality upgrades for users, allowing them to watch their videos on a television. By July 2008, Animoto for Business[11] and Animoto for Education[12] were launched. Animoto for Education gives teachers and students unlimited access to its full-length video making services for free, while Animoto for Business allows for Animoto to be used commercially. Since an overwhelming number of professional photographers started to use the Animoto for Business product, Animoto for Photography [13] was launched in October 2008 at PhotoPlus in New York City. Since launching, Animoto for Photography has attended every national photography convention, including the Professional Photographers of America's Imaging Conference & WPPI. Animoto for Real Estate is another off-shoot of the commercial product, which officially launched at the Inman Connect Conference in San Francisco in July 2009. Animoto's pro-package is a White-label product. In June 2009, the Animoto iPhone app was launched,[14] allowing iPhone users to create video using pictures taken on their phone.[15] In August 2009, Animoto launched the ability to upload video clips, along with still images.[16] This has been the largest advance to the Animoto offering thus far. In April 2011 the company added functionality for Apple TV and AirPlay users. .[17]


Webby Award winner in the "Best Services & Design" category; Webby Award winner - People's Voice Award in the "Best Services & Design" category; SXSW's Interactive Award in the "Best Film/Website" category; BBC's Click "Top Websites of 2008"; PC Magazine's "Top 100 Undiscovered Websites of 2008"; TechCrunch's Crunchies Runner-Up for Best Design [18] Animoto gained considerable press around the Webby Awards, not only due to their win, but because of their speech. The Huffington Post placed the Animoto acceptance speech in their top 12 moments of the Webby Awards Ceremony.[19] Animoto's CFO, Nathan Meagher, wore a wig & disrobed to leopard skin tights in front of a surprised audience & Webby Awards host, Seth Meyers of SNL fame. Eventually screaming "Thank you, New York.... WOOOOO," (due to the 5 word maximum speech limit at the Webby Awards), Animoto grew considerable attention for the outlandish speech.

Integration with other services
Development community is planning integration with the opensource learning management systems like moodle.

The fedena project is owned by Foradian Technologies, an internet engineering company based in India.

Name and Logo
Fedena was initially named as 'foredu', as it was the first educational software from foradian technologies. But the domain name was already taken and the development team thought of something unique and web 2.0 and they selected 'fedena'. It means the coolest thing alive, usually meaning something come from royalty or from wealth. The name fedena is also motivated from Athena, the greek goddess of wisdom. Athena appears attended by an owl. So the creative team of fedena selected owl as the symbol and derived the logo from the face of an owl. Owl is also the symbol of wisdom and knowledge in many mythologies and beliefs.

HVaaS. the term MVaaS is intentionally similar to the well-known term SaaS. to allow them and their customers to more easily manage large numbers of digital video recorders (DVRs) or network video recorders (NVRs). It refers to a systems architecture used by companies that provide or enable video monitoring services. and send automated user-defined email alerts. In any scalable video monitoring architecture. Envysion Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS). are stored in the central database along with the information about each customers video recorders and users. The term Managed Video refers to the fact that in this architecture. For example. this information is sometimes said to be “in the cloud”. Indeed. MVaaS Providers Arrowsight [3] uses its own MVaaS architecture to provide video monitoring for business operations.

IBM and other mainframe providers conducted a service bureau business. Application service providers provided businesses with the service of hosting and managing specialized business applications. is commonly used in more specific settings: whereas most initial application service providers focused on managing and hosting third-party independent software vendors' software. often referred to as time-sharing or utility computing. normally using a web browser over the Internet. Such services included offering computing power and database storage to banks and other large organizations from their worldwide data centers. whereas many initial application service providers offered more traditional client-server applications. Software as a service is essentially an extension of the idea of the ASP model. invoicing. Gartner Group also estimates that SaaS applications. which coined the term "The End of Software" to differentiate its (then new) software-as-a-service approach from its competition. contemporary software as a service solutions are predominantly web-based and only require an internet browser to use.[6] .2% from 2010. up 16. and. enterprise resource planning (ERP). up 15. The SaaS acronym is said to have first appeared in an article called "Strategic Backgrounder: Software as a Service". which require installation of software on users' personal computers. and partitions its data accordingly. contemporary software as a service solutions normally utilize a multi-tenant architecture. equivalent applications that are installed in businesses' computer networks or personal computers.[3] SaaS sales in 2010 have reached $9B. and are projected to increase to $10. i. contemporary software-as-a-service vendors typically develop and manage their own software." is a software delivery model in which software and its associated data are hosted centrally (typically in the (Internet) cloud) and are typically accessed by users using a thin client. which at the time offered only traditional on-premises software. including accounting. sometimes referred to as "on-demand software. While practically every Internet service (such as Web search engine or web-based Email) is driven by some underlying software. The concept of SaaS has been popularized by Salesforce.. would represent at least 16% of worldwide software sales by 2014. however. SaaS has become a common delivery model for most business applications. published in February 2001 by the Software & Information Industry's (SIIA) eBusiness Division.[4] The term software as a service (SaaS) is considered to be part of the nomenclature of cloud computing. with the goal of reducing cost by central administration and through the solution provider's specialization in a particular business application. SaaS has been incorporated into the strategy of all leading enterprise software companies. The expansion of the Internet during the 1990s brought about a new class of centralized computing. human resource management (HRM). the term Software as a Service (SaaS) is often used in the context of business applications. which accounted for a little more than 10% of the total enterprise software market last year. Starting at that decade. The term Software as a Service (SaaS). along with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). whereas the software architecture used by most initial application service providers mandated maintaining a separate instance of the application for each business. collaboration.e.[2] According to a Gartner Group estimate.

This is consistent with the traditional rationale for outsourcing IT systems.k.a. The application can be customized to the degree it was designed for based on a set of predefined configuration options. multi-tenant applications are designed to support application configuration. While an exception rather the norm... a set of configuration options (a.e. with a potentially different configuration. its database schema or its GUI.

In other words.. more reliable applications. not customization Driven by a multi-tenancy architecture. opportunities also exist to charge per transaction. SaaS providers generally price applications using a subscription fee.[7] Whether multi-tenancy is a necessary component for software-as-a-service is a topic of controversy. i. and oftentimes customized—are installed across the various customer sites. setting up a new customer) in a multi-tenant environment enables some SaaS vendors to offer applications using the freemium model. . with a single configuration (hardware. with revenue being derived from alternate sources such as advertising. i.

Each customer may have its own settings (or: parameter values) for the configuration options. With this model. a single version of the application.e. a single customer cannot alter the source code of the application.[8] Characteristics While not all software-as-a-service applications share all traits. To support scalability. is used for all customers ("tenants"). cheaper. The relatively low cost for user provisioning (i. because in a SaaS environment customers' data resides with the SaaS vendor.e. Consequently. which involves applying economies of scale to application operation. the initial setup cost for SaaS is typically lower than the equivalent enterprise software. A key driver of SaaS growth is SaaS vendors' ability to provide a price that is competitive with on-premises software. unlike traditional enterprise software. however. operating system). This is contrasted with traditional software.

Open integration protocols Since SaaS applications cannot access a company's internal systems (databases or internal services). presentation and functionality from multiple services. many SaaS applications offer features that let its users collaborate and share information.. • The application only has a single configuration. SOAP and JSON. Collaborative (and "social") functionality Inspired by the success of online social networks and other so-called web 2.g. • The standardization of the web stack (HTML. • The solution provider has access to user behavior within the application (usually via web analytics). and enabled new solution providers to come up with competitive solutions. The ubiquity of SaaS applications and other Internet services and the standardization of their API technology has spawned development of mashups. many project management applications delivered in the SaaS model offer—in addition to traditional project planning functionality—collaboration features letting users comment on tasks and plans and share documents within and outside an organization. Mashups further differentiate SaaS applications from on-premises software as the latter cannot be easily integrated outside a company's firewall. opening the door for new software vendors offering a user experience perceived as more "modern". continuously decreased the need for traditional client-server applications. traditional software vendors' investment in software based on fat clients has become a disadvantage (mandating ongoing support). For example. the increasing popularity of web development as a practice. expediting design and regression testing. Accelerated feature delivery is further enabled by agile software development methodologies[10] . making it easier to identify areas worthy of improvement. . Adoption drivers Several important changes to the software market and technology landscape have facilitated acceptance and growth of SaaS solutions: • The growing use of web-based user interfaces by applications. provide a set of software development tools and practices to support frequent software releases. While some collaboration-related functionality is also integrated into on-premises software.0 functionality. along with the proliferation of associated practices (e. Typically. (implicit or explicit) collaboration between users of different customers is only possible with centrally-hosted software. challenging traditional vendors. CSS. Such methodologies. in many cases on a weekly or monthly basis. and the introduction and ubiquitousness of web application frameworks gradually reduced the cost of developing new SaaS solutions. This is enabled by several factors: • The application is hosted centrally. making development testing faster. these are protocols based on HTTP. REST. Several other SaaS applications let users vote on and offer new feature ideas. which have evolved in the mid-1990's.
