Abstract
Nowadays the world is undergoing a digital revolution, and e-books are becoming an increasingly significant category of digital resource. In this paper, we propose a cloud serving based online electronic book (e-book) platform. On this platform, e-books resource can be distributed and then can be provided to readers to browse, read, share and purchase. At the same time, with software systems of this platform, publishers can make their books online and provide cloud based service to all clients. With such demands, a platform is designed and implemented. The platform comprises of several software systems, which are built to facilitate reader and publisher to utilize e-book resources according to their respective demands. Since nowadays it is an age of mobile internet, great emphasis is placed on the mobile platform, such as Ios and Android. Moreover, to cope with some well-known issues, such as piracy, some special designs is been made. To validate our design, some experiments are conducted in this platform and results show that our system works quite well. With e-book resources becoming more and more important in our daily life, our platform is expected to improve work efficiency greatly.
