Why cloud? The evolution of cloud technology has drastically reduced the time and effort to ship an idea to the market. You neither need costly physical servers nor expensive maintenance engineers. Moving to the cloud takes care of everything. The best part is you only pay for what you use. This is a boon for individual developers and start-ups. What is in this book? Ever wondered how apps like Uber, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Instagram, Feedly, etc. work? Uber provides you locations of available cars real-time. Whatsapp, Snapchat lets you send text, photos and videos instantly. Instagram enables you to share photos. Feedly gives you news of your interest. This book teaches you to build such cloud apps. Who is the book for? 1. You are a computer science student looking to learn industry skills. 2. You have basic coding skills and want to learn cloud development. 3. You are a software engineer with years of experience but don't understand the cloud. 4. You want to move your service to cloud. 5. You want to develop cloud apps. "Febin does a brilliant job of introducing cloud computing jargon in layman's terms while at the same time carefully guiding the reader in getting started in building cloud apps practically without spoon feeding him/her." Naresh Annangar, Sr. Security Researcher, Zscaler "Cloud computing is no more the future; It is the present. From playing a game on Facebook to reading an e-book on a Kindle, everything is driven by cloud computing around us. This book makes learning fun, interesting and you get to solve real world problems. If you are a wannapreneur, entrepreneur, a student or someone who wants to start off with cloud computing, then this book is for you. Beware this book gets you addicted to cloud computing!"

Cloud computing is here to stay. If you’re a Project Manager, you’re increasingly likely to encounter situations in which cloud computing will have an impact on your project – whether you want it to or not! Often, you may have no choice – especially if a boss, customer or sponsor states, “You will use cloud computing in this project!” If you ask why, chances are the answer will be, “Because everyone else is using them!”As a PM, you need to be able to make sure that everyone involved with your project understands which of the three basic types of clouds are appropriate for that project. Each type of cloud has specific capabilities and limitations. Some come with different service models, as well as different “deployment models,” each with its own advantages and disadvantages.This book helps you cut through the jargon and hype surrounding clouds and cloud-based services. It will enable you to distinguish between the different types of clouds, service models, deployment models, and their relative strengths and limitations. It will help you:•Effectively manage project team and stakeholder expectations•Effectively plan, execute and monitor projects that involve clouds•Help your organization and customers avoid costly mistakes•Guide your organization to effectively leverage new cloud-based capabilities•Make clouds work for you and your project•Avoid common pitfalls (including security issues) when using cloudsThis book also maps the contents of key chapters to the process groups and knowledge areas in the PMBOK® Guide, allowing you to easily apply the accepted standards of project management to cloud computing.You don’t need to be a “techie” to benefit from this book. Hopefully, this book will help dispel some of the mystery and hype associated with cloud computing, and bring about that vital “Aha!” moment as you discover how to make the cloud work for your project.

Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise: A Step-by-Step Guide (Addison-Wesley Information Technology Series)
Massive, disruptive change is coming to IT as software as a service (SaaS), SOA, mashups, Web 2.0, and cloud computing truly come of age. Now, one of the world’s leading IT innovators explains what it all means—coherently, thoroughly, and authoritatively. Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, world-renowned expert David S. Linthicum explains why the days of managing IT organizations as private fortresses will rapidly disappear as IT inevitably becomes a global community. He demonstrates how to run IT when critical elements of customer, product, and business data and processes extend far beyond the firewall—and how to use all that information to deliver real-time answers about everything from an individual customer’s credit to the location of a specific cargo container. Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise offers a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges associated with this new world—and offers a step-by-step program for getting there with maximum return on investment and minimum risk. Using multiple examples, Linthicum
- Reviews the powerful cost, value, and risk-related drivers behind the move to cloud computing—and explains why the shift will accelerate
- Explains the technical underpinnings, supporting technologies, and best-practice methods you’ll need to make the transition
- Helps you objectively assess the promise of cloud computing and SOA for your organization, quantify value, and make the business case
- Walks you through evaluating your existing IT infrastructure and finding your most cost-effective, safest path to the “cloud”
- Shows how to choose the right candidate data, services, and processes for your cloud computing initiatives
- Guides you through building disruptive infrastructure and next-generation process platforms
- Helps you bring effective, high-value governance to the clouds

Cloud computing, whereby software, data processing, data storage and other key IT requirements are delivered as a service via the Internet, is evolving rapidly. However, whilst many organisations are becoming reliant on cloud resources, contracts for cloud services often contain provisions that are inappropriate, unenforceable and/or illegal. Similarly, the application of established data protection concepts to the storage and processing of information in cloudenvironments can be problematic, with fundamental uncertainties as to what is regulated, who is reponsible, which laws apply, and the circumstances in which law enforcement authorities can obtain access to information.Covering the key legal and regulatory issues surrounding cloud computing, this work provides an invaluable analysis of this evolving area of law. Topics covered include contracts, data ownership and protection, access to data, competition, and consumer protection as well as an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of governance models for cloud computing, making this the most coherent and comprehensive study of the issues surrounding cloud computing law.
