Description

Application Hosting provides functionality to accommodate (business) application services. This entails:

  • the runtime environment that the hosted applications can use;
  • a means to expose or publish the application services' results to its users;
  • the connectivity that consumers of the application's services require for access;

and optionally, extra functionality to service the application services.

Examples of application services that can be hosted using an Application Hosting service are:

  • Applications that are used in a web environment, e.g. Java or .Net applications - in this case the Application Hosting service is provided by an "application server" such as a Tomcat or GlassFish;
  • Binary applications, e.g. Windows or Apple applications - the Application Hosting service is then realized with a "server";
  • Virtual Machines, such as virtual servers or desktops - the Application Hosting service is then realized by virtualization hosts.
