FREE Force.com Platform Technical Whitepaper - Comprehensive Look at the World's Premier Cloud Computing Platform from Salesforce.com


Cloud computing, Software as a Service (SaaS), and on-demand software are related terms that generally refer to hardware, software applications, and services that are available for immediate use as they execute somewhere in the cloud (the Internet). Cloud computing is gaining popularity in the business world because it delivers unprecedented levels of ease, productivity, and success.

Application providers that intend to build and offer cloud-based applications must face many operational and technical challenges specific to cloud computing. These challenges are so numerous and daunting that they have given rise to cloud computing platforms—new application frameworks that specifically address the unique demands required to create and deliver next generation cloud-based applications.

Force.com is cloud computing for the enterprise. Using the Force.com platform, private enterprises and commercial software providers alike can quickly create and deliver custom business applications entirely over the Internet, without any up-front software and hardware expenditures, configuration, and ongoing maintenance hassles. And because the design of Force.com meets all of the unique needs of cloud applications, providers can easily deliver trusted, secure, configurable, and customizable services that are multi-device capable and easy to upgrade and integrate with other applications.

You'll learn about every facet in the design of Force.com, including the platform's underlying infrastructure, its unique database layer, support for automated business processing, open standards-based integration capabilities, application user interface options, application development alternatives, and AppExchange, the platform's application marketplace and distribution system.
