I am a novice in Cloud Computing and I thought I have a decent understanding of cloud computing. After reading this book, I found how much more is there in cloud computing space. I am still reading and I have liked it so far. The author talks at architectural level (as the title says) and is good for anyone new to this area. I like that this book is clarifying my concepts and telling what all is available to explore. If you are looking for details on how to implement solutions using AWS, Azure, App Engine then this book is not for you.
I got this book quite late (10-15 days) with no shipping information published on Amazon. I wish the seller can expedite the delivery of books.

I'm a relatively tech-y person trying to get a handle on cloud computing. I have found this book very easy to read, clearly organized, and very practical. My main gripe with it is the index. I rely heavily on a book's index, both to find something I read before and to get an overview of the various topics a book covers. The index for this book is only three pages, and is very superficial. It often lists many pages for a topic without breaking them out into subtopics. I get more use out of the table of contents than I do from the index; because the book is well organized, I can generally find what I'm looking for. But not always. For example, in my reading I came across the term shared-nothing. I understood the discussion, but later on I realized I had forgotten what it meant. Sadly, the term shared-nothing was not in the index. Since I knew the realm in which the term applied, I was able to look up a few topics in the TOC, one of which led me to the term. Any time a term is introduced in quotes, as this one was, it's clearly relevant to the discussion, and should be find-able again. I am pondering returning this version and getting the kindle one. At least then, I could search for any term I wanted to. My advice to readers: keep your post-it notes handy as you read this book. My advice to the publisher: hire a professional indexer for the next edition.

John and Risto have gone the distance to really explain in detail the technical structure of cloud computing platforms. In Cloud Computing Explained John gave us the "Who" and "Why" [plus a whole lot more] of cloud computing, and now he and Risto give us the "what, where, when" on how to build a flexible, scalable, secure and automated multi-purpose, multi-tenant cloud computing infrastructure. The best feature of the content is that itreally speaks to the experience of its authors - I can really tell that these guys have "been there" and "done that" and have put their experience into an well though out architecture guide. Great detailed content for those who need to get up to speed on cloud computing, as well as great help for IT experts who want to polish up their own cloud computing environments.

This is a really deep book. Here you can find a very detailed description of the Cloud's solution design topics that you have to consider when you are designing a web application for the cloud.

The author has approached the topic very intelligently, top-down first and then delving into every aspect of cloud computing in detail. Each topic is treated with utmost thoroughness in terms of possibilities, limitations, advantages and benefits and above all what one must anticipate. I am amazed at the knowledge of the author. I started reading the book end to end, then jumped to the topics I was interested in. Great book for anyone trying to get an understanding of how to architect a cloud.

Excellent book. A great place to start if you are contemplating how to architect a cloud solution. Which is exactly what I was looking for - guidance on design and advice on what products and vendors to consider in defining a cloud solution.

Obviously not a step-by-step, how to book. With the many methods and technologies that make up Cloud Computing, how could it be. But in this very current book, John Rhoton covers the basics of what you need to know.
