This thesis describes the integration of a cloud service into an existing desktop application to increase performance and add new functionality made possible by distributed computing. The prototype successfully integrates a cloud service's virtual machines into the application using a RESTful approach that create an API for clients to use. The peer-to-peer architecture is discussed as an alternative to a RESTful approach but is ultimately turned down in favour of a RESTful API to support thinner clients. A client makes a request to the API which in turn communicates with the cloud service provider which supply with computing power. The request is processed and the result is displayed in the client application. The approach is deemed successful and a solid way to create a service using distributed services.
