Cloud computing platforms can allow organizations to become more efficient and more responsive to users of both internal and external systems, yet a clear understanding is needed in order to separate the facts from the hype behind this new and rapidly expanding area.
This Guide to Cloud Computing describes the landscape of cloud computing from first principles, leading the reader step-by-step through the process of building and configuring a cloud environment. The book not only considers the technologies for designing and creating cloud computing platforms, but also the business models and frameworks in real-world implementation of cloud platforms. Emphasis is placed on “learning by doing,” and readers are encouraged to experiment with a range of different tools and approaches.
