Intel, NetSuite, Gproxy Balanced Cloud Compute Model Design Guide
Audience and Purpose
Cloud computing offers a path to greater scalability and lower costs for service providers, infrastructure hosting companies, and large enterprises. However, building and using a cloud can be a daunting task. With its partners, Intel is providing reference architectures through the Intel® Cloud Builders Program, a starting point for building a cloud by providing a basic hardware and software blueprint.
Clouds are often used to deliver services to client devices, including notebooks, phones, and tablets. End users are seeking not only to use a service but also to enjoy the best experience possible on a given device. This paper explores how the cloud can deliver a service in a way that adapts to specific client devices and optimizes the end-user experience.
The NetSuite Ecommerce* cloud platform and Gproxy’s CLIDES* (Client Device Score) product are two solutions. The usages described in this paper can be used as a baseline to build more complex usage and deployment models to meet specific customer needs.
The target audience of this paper is cloud service providers, enterprise and consumer ISVs, and enterprise IT departments that are looking to deploy a balanced web solution using the capabilities of the end-client to deliver a rich end-user experience. This paper introduces a set of publicly available web APIs and design-in methodology.
With the multitude of client devices flooding the market, cloud computing poses new questions about the optimal client strategy for enterprises and consumers. More and more applications and services are moving to the cloud, and users expect support across multiple devices. In many cases, users don’t understand the difference in usage experience across devices.
