Cloud Computing Patterns: Fundamentals to Design, Build, and Manage Cloud Applications

https://www.amazon.com/Cloud-Computing-Patterns-Fundamentals...
The current work provides CIOs, software architects, project managers, developers, and cloud strategy initiatives with a set of architectural patterns that offer nuggets of advice on how to achieve common cloud computing-related goals. The cloud computing patterns capture knowledge and experience in an abstract format that is independent of concrete vendor products. Readers are provided with a toolbox to structure cloud computing strategies and design cloud application architectures. By using this book cloud-native applications can be implemented and best suited cloud vendors and tooling for individual usage scenarios can be selected. The cloud computing patterns offer a unique blend of academic knowledge and practical experience due to the mix of authors. Academic knowledge is brought in by Christoph Fehling and Professor Dr. Frank Leymann who work on cloud research at the University of Stuttgart. Practical experience in building cloud applications, selecting cloud vendors, and designing enterprise architecture as a cloud customer is brought in by Dr. Ralph Retter who works as an IT architect at T‑Systems, Walter Schupeck, who works as a Technology Manager in the field of Enterprise Architecture at Daimler AG,and Peter Arbitter, the former head of T Systems’ cloud architecture and IT portfolio team and now working for Microsoft. Voices on Cloud Computing Patterns Cloud computing is especially beneficial for large companies such as Daimler AG. Prerequisite is a thorough analysis of its impact on the existing applications and the IT architectures. During our collaborative research with the University of Stuttgart, we identified a vendor-neutral and structured approach to describe properties of cloud offerings and requirements on cloud environments. The resulting Cloud Computing Patterns have profoundly impacted our corporate IT strategy regarding the adoption of cloud computing. They help our architects, project managers and developers in the refinement of architectural guidelines and communicate requirements to our integration partners and software suppliers.Dr. Michael Gorriz – CIO Daimler AG Ever since 2005 T-Systems has provided a flexible and reliable cloud platform with its “Dynamic Services”. Today these cloud services cover a huge variety of corporate applications, especially enterprise resource planning, business intelligence, video, voice communication, collaboration, messaging and mobility services. The book was written by senior cloud pioneers sharing their technology foresight combining essential information and practical experiences. This valuable compilation helps both practitioners and clients to really understand which new types of services are readily available, how they really work and importantly how to benefit from the cloud.  Dr. Marcus Hacke – Senior Vice President, T-Systems International GmbHThis book provides a conceptual framework and very timely guidance for people and organizations building applications for the cloud. Patterns are a proven approach to building robust and sustainable applications and systems. The authors adapt and extend it to cloud computing, drawing on their own experience and deep contributions to the field. Each pattern includes an extensive discussion of the state of the art, with implementation considerations and practical examples that the reader can apply to their own projects. By capturing our collective knowledge about building good cloud applications and by providing a format to integrate new insights, this book provides an important tool not just for individual practitioners and teams, but for the cloud computing community at large. Kristof Kloeckner – General Manager,Rational Software, IBMSoftware Group

Mobile Cloud Computing: Principles and Paradigms

https://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Cloud-Computing-Principles-Par...
The amalgamation of two technologies, Cloud Computing and Mobile Computing, has given rise to what we know today as Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC). Mobile Cloud Computing could be seen as a solution to the problems faced by our smartphones by leveraging the concepts of cloud computing. With the vast usage of mobile devices, it is evident that the next paradigm shift after cloud computing would be MCC.This book is one of its kinds as it covers all aspects of MCC. Some of the leading concepts which this book covers are Mobile Computational Offloading (MCO) and Cloud Assisted Mobile Augmentation (CMA) which helps to overcome the limitations (battery life and computational power) faced by our smartphones. The book lays emphasis on the concept of Cloudlets with which a reader could create his/her own local cloud with the help of his/her mobile device. The book also talks about Live VM migration through which VMs of mobile devices could be migrated from one server to another without causing any glitches in its services.The book allows a reader to have a deep understanding for MCC and explore its contents according to his/her own endeavors. It serves the purpose of providing adequate knowledge about the fundamentals of MCC to a common reader. It will also help research scholars in doing future research within the scope of this technology.
