Designing SaaS for Scalability
Computer Engineering Department
Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm that has gained broad interest in different domains. An important category is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), an on-demand software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud. One of the challenges in designing and maintaining SaaS computing systems is scalability. Various studies are made and techniques are applied in order to improve scalability of SaaS systems. For this purpose, we analyze and define the key concerns related to SaaS architectures and scalability. Our research method adopts a systematic literature review. As a result of the data extraction and synthesis process of the systematic literature review we have determined key aspects and approaches that emerge in last ten year in scalability and cloud computing. Also we list a number of open research problems that we have identified in the systematic review.
