Cloud computing is gaining increasing attention from the industry and research; however, there is a lack of advanced Cloud software development tools. While Platform as a Service (PaaS) brings convenient software development platform for application development, it often comes with limitations in terms of application architecture functionality and requires provider lock-in. The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model may sound like a solution to these problems by enabling application development freedom; however, it necessitates operation at the lower level of virtual machines and snapshots. In this chapter, the authors present CloudScale: a low-overhead middleware framework that migrates Java applications seamlessly to the Cloud with minimal changes in the application code. They focus on the main ideas behind CloudScale and its influence on solving Cloud software development and deployment problems with minimal overhead and Cloud-awareness required from developers.
