Really a Bible

I upgraded my rating from 0 to 7 on a scale of 10 on this topic, after having read the book. Though well versed in IT due to my experience, I did not know much about cloud, therefore I have also rated the book at 5. The subject is dealt with in detail and written in a manner which captures the reader's interest. Having managed IT infrastructures for some years, the book gives me confidence to manage cloud environments also (if the need arises). The chapters towards the end of the book like mobile computing, etc; are bonuses which brings the reader uptodate with current market/happenings in the technology industries. Several references are provided for further real-life reading. An excellent read and content.

cloud computing at their businesses

This book could appeal to those individuals interested in learning what cloud computing is and what it is all about, but more importantly topics such as infrastructure and service level agreements, security, mobile cloud computing and more will appeal to administrators and IT staff who have been asked to look into and possibly roll out cloud computing at their businesses.
