Title: A Feasibility Study of Migrating a Telematics Solution Back-end into the Cloud
Authors: Engman, Henrik

Abstract: It is common that there are long lead times in large organisations when working with servers that are owned or rented by the organisation. The cost for this approach might be high and the flexibility regarding time, hardware, and performance is low. Because of the long lead times, performance must be over-provisioned in order to handle future demands and traffic spikes. In this thesis a number of different cloud service providers are evaluated with respect to Volvo Group Telematics requirements and their current environment. Migrating one of their services to one infrastructure as a service provider and two platform as a service providers was done as a proof-of-concept. Advantages and disadvantages regarding the different cloud service providers when compared to each other as well as when compared to Volvo Group Telematics requirements are discussed. The cloud service industry is still in its infancy where it lacks standardisation and the documentation is changing rapidly since many of the services still are in beta or in developer preview. From the evaluated cloud service providers in this thesis, Amazon is currently the best option among the infrastructure as a service providers and a successful deployment was done on their platform. Among the evaluated platform as a service providers there are currently no viable option, mainly because of missing support for required technologies.
