Anton Zvonko Gazvoda (2012) Integration Architecture for Cloud Computing, Communication and Software as a Service on IPTV Case. EngD thesis.
Cloud computing offers new approach to offering information services. Information services are carried out in the cloud and they are available on-demand. Model of providing software applications in cloud is called Software as a Service. Applications and related data are hosted in cloud, which can be private or public. Saas Applications are accessible over the network. Applications in the public cloud is hosted on remote location in datacenter and are accessible ower Internet. Customers usually access to Saas Applications using a thin client over web browser. Customers don’t want to move their applications to the cloud due of reasons such as lack of trust in cloud provider, unknown data location, safety and data loss. Some of the customers will still have part of their applications in the cloud regardless of risk losing data or safety. The applications often depend on each other so integration is required. In the following sections is explained how integration is made and how communication between applications in the cloud and applications within organizations, so called on-premise applications, is enabled. Way to integrate Saas applications with IPTV communications services which are accessable as a services (CaaS) and customers on-premise applications, which are carried out on the infrastructure of the organization, is primary goal of this diploma thesis. We will introduce an innovative system that allows IPTV subscribers to send order of some advertised product, vote during reality show and purse donation to charity via interactive television. The thesis presents a simple prototype of such system.
