Updated and Expanded in 2013Cloud Computing Explained provides an overview of Cloud Computing in an enterprise environment. There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm around cloud-based solutions and services as well as the cost-savings and flexibility that they can provide. It is imperative that all senior technologists have a solid understanding of the ramifications of cloud computing since its impact is likely to permeate the entire IT landscape. However, it is not trivial to introduce a fundamentally different service-delivery paradigm into an existing enterprise architecture. This book describes the benefits and challenges of Cloud Computing and then leads the reader through the process of assessing the suitability of a cloud-based approach for a given situation, calculating and justifying the investment that is required to transform the process or application, and then developing a solid design that considers the implementation as well as the ongoing operations and governance required to maintain the solution in a partially outsourced delivery model.

A guide to cloud computing for students, scientists, and engineers, with advice and many hands-on examples.The emergence of powerful, always-on cloud utilities has transformed how consumers interact with information technology, enabling video streaming, intelligent personal assistants, and the sharing of content. Businesses, too, have benefited from the cloud, outsourcing much of their information technology to cloud services. Science, however, has not fully exploited the advantages of the cloud. Could scientific discovery be accelerated if mundane chores were automated and outsourced to the cloud? Leading computer scientists Ian Foster and Dennis Gannon argue that it can, and in this book offer a guide to cloud computing for students, scientists, and engineers, with advice and many hands-on examples. The book surveys the technology that underpins the cloud, new approaches to technical problems enabled by the cloud, and the concepts required to integrate cloud services into scientific work. It covers managing data in the cloud, and how to program these services; computing in the cloud, from deploying single virtual machines or containers to supporting basic interactive science experiments to gathering clusters of machines to do data analytics; using the cloud as a platform for automating analysis procedures, machine learning, and analyzing streaming data; building your own cloud with open source software; and cloud security.The book is accompanied by a website, Cloud4SciEng.org, that provides a variety of supplementary material, including exercises, lecture slides, and other resources helpful to readers and instructors.

Cloud Computing Beginners Guide: An Introduction to Scalability, Services, and Serverless Technology
Have you ever wondered what people mean when they refer to "the cloud"? This book clears the fog. Maybe you're a seasoned IT veteran, but you want to gain greater exposure to the new technologies offered in cloud computing. This book will get you started in the right direction. Whatever perspective you may be starting from, the Cloud Computing Beginner's Guide will help clarify the concepts associated with this revolutionary technology.Throughout this book, we will cover a variety of key topics. After unpacking what the cloud is, we move on to review the different cloud models (IaaS, PaaS, & SaaS), types of clouds (Private, Public, & Hybrid), benefits and drawbacks of cloud computing, cloud architecting, cloud security considerations, and even monitoring cloud resources. Examples of cloud-based architecting are offered frequently, allowing the reader to better visualize the concepts presented. Additionally, we'll take a quick tour of the four big cloud providers: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM Cloud.By the end of this guide, you will have a greater understanding of what cloud computing is and the features that make it unique from "traditional" data center-based infrastructure. If you're looking to earn a certification from AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud, this is a great place to build a foundation for starting your studies. Whether you're an IT professional or just getting started in your career, this guide will help demystify "the cloud" in a methodical, example-filled approach!
