Work Completed By: Carl Hipkiss
The option for delivering applications via cloud computing has gained traction in the last 12 months, with established software providers joining younger web-based companies to provide cloud-based models to continue using their products while gaining benefits around rapid deployment, hardware and location agnosticism, reduced client dependency, scalable storage and universal access.
This project is concerned with determining whether moving from our current approach to a cloud based model is a practical proposition. Plus what practical and technical considerations should be made for such a change.
