I am very pleased to announce that this is the one year anniversary at ShepHertz – it was on March 1st, 2013. I never dreamed that I will work with such a like minded people, technologies and company.

It has been a such an incredible journey so far. I learned so many things that i can’t put in words over here. I found truly wonderful experience with truly wonderful people at ShepHertz.

I am more happy to say that I am part of company which is A Cloud Ecosystem Provider for Apps and unique in this cloud computing world!.

Here I get opportunity to work on Cloud Computing production like PaaS, BaaS and GPaaS.

Below, I would like to share some highlights from my year experience.

App42 PaaS – At App42 PaaS I am member of the Runtime Systems team, where taking care of distributed systems that manage many application hosting(Rails/PHP/Java/ Node.js), systems development and infrastructure automation.

At this point you must wondering What is App42 PaaS and what it do? Right? Let me explain.

App42 PaaS is a Public Cloud Platform-as-a-Service with support for multiple languages
and platforms. This will enable you to focus on your development rather than putting your time on infrastructure hassles.

Key Benefits:
– A Polyglot platform that supports multiple languages and frameworks like Ruby, Java, PHP, Node.js, JRuby, Jython and more.
– Multiple Cloud Services like MongoDB, CouchDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL and more.
– Control through Command Line as well as Management Console for quick deployment of Apps
– Customizable load balancing for high availability- Quick Scaling/Descaling of resources

My Journey with App42 API – The App42 Cloud API’s consists of a REST based service which has a JSON and XML interface. There are around 22+ modules with over 400+ API’s e.g. User, Session Management, Storage, Recommendation, Photo Gallery, Queue / Message, Game, Geo Spatial etc. which will help developers to develop their applications; irrespective of the type of App they are developing. SDK’s are provided for all popular languages and platforms which will enable easy integration of the API’s into the App code. With just a few lines of code, the App developer gets access to services from a simple to complex technical as well as business services.

I would like to thank Siddhartha Chandurkar and Naveen Goswami sincerely for your all support, kindness and help during years with organization. Thank you ShepHertz family to making this journey so wonderful.!!

What is cloud computing? When to use a cloud?


Hi Friends, Sorry i was quite busy from previous couple of months So don’t get time for post. It’s really great experience working on cloud computing, basically on PaaS(Platform as a Service), BaaS(Backend as a Service) and IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) with ShepHertz. I came across multiple questions, people asking about cloud computing segment. So i thought of write a blog on Cloud Computing.

Let me explain cloud computing segments in details to understand Cloud Computing.

Cloud computing: Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.

Cloud Computing Segment:

IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) – Infrastructure as a Service is a provision model of cloud computing in which an organization outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking components. The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it. The client typically pays on a per-use basis. Ex- Amazon Web Services, BlueLock, Cloudscaling and Datapipe

PaaS(Platform as a Service) – Platform as a Service is one of the GROWING sector of cloud computing. PaaS basically help developer to speed the development of app, saving money and most important innovating their applications and business instead of setting up configurations and managing things like servers and databases. In one line I can say Platform as a service (PaaS) automates the configuration, deployment and ongoing management of applications in the cloud. Ex: Heroku, EngineYard, App42 PaaS and OpenShift

SaaS(Software as a Service) – Software as a Service, SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service. Ex: Abiquo’s and Akamai

BaaS(Backed as a Service) – Backend as a service (BaaS), also known as “mobile backend as a service” (MBaaS),is a model for providing web and mobile app developers with a way to link their applications to backend cloud storage while also providing features such as user management, push notifications, and integration with social networking services. Exp: Kinvey, StackMob, App42 API and Parse
