The service is described as an Australian alternative to Amazon AWS. It provides a platform for application hosting and online data storage in the cloud, with capabilities for virtual server installations and shared file repositories. Cloud Compute functionality includes establishing and configuring a virtual machine, then installing and managing software using those resources. Cloud Storage functionality includes creating storage structures, setting access permissions, and uploading, replacing, and deleting files.
API methods support creating and configuring virtual machines and managing applications running on those platforms. Methods also support establishing storage locations and access criteria, with full create-retrieve-update-delete (CRUD) controls. The API gives complete control of descriptive metadata assigned and maintained for all resources on the platform.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
