I've been looking into migrating several applications into the cloud, but there are a few options out there (including Azure, Google and AWS), and many opinions on what the 'best' approach is. This book was a great way to get understanding of all the pros and cons of Amazon's offering. The examples are relevant and easy to use for anyone who already knows .NET. I'd recommend this book to anyone in the same position as me - considering jumping into the cloud but wanting more information on the ins and outs of the Amazon platform.

Professionals should consider scaling strategy, security issues, automatic provision, automatic monitoring. And limitations for public cloud v.s. private cloud and virtual machine solutions.
