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.

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

This is an introduction to cloud computing that covers everything required by a computer user to understand the concept, and by a manager or business owner to make an informed decision when thinking of moving their IT operations into the cloud.It is an easy-to-read explanation that deals with everything in non-technical terms.All the basic concepts are discussed, including cloud services, deployment methods and consumption options, as well as the associated advantages and risks of using these. There are dozens of examples, including a comprehensive range of business, professional and personal applications.The Oxford English Dictionary definition of cloud computing is:"The practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or personal computer".The first section explains what cloud computing is and what it isn’t using this definition, and it outlines the benefits of this new method of IT resource management.The History section discusses the development of cloud computing, including the long-term trends that have led to this new paradigm in IT resource deployment.The Roles that are involved in cloud computing, such as cloud consumer and cloud provider, are discussed in the third section.The next sections describe Service Models, Deployment Models and the Consumption Model, which includes pricing, payment and access options, and the following sections cover the Advantages and Risks of using these models and options.The Examples section describes many business, professional and personal applications that are available in the cloud, as well as examples of the service and deployment models.The Consumer Cloud Storage section deals with one example in depth, namely cloud storage for individual consumers, rather than for enterprises. This is potentially the biggest cloud service, in the sense of possibly having the largest number of users across all providers, because every individual with Internet access could become a user, if only to backup data from their devices. The section lists the features of the various offerings, and it includes a buying guide to help potential users choose the service they require.The Appendices list the meanings of various Terms and Acronyms, and a few dozen sources of recommended Further Reading on specific topics, including links to several websites that detail cloud services of various types, plus References.
