an invaluable guide to anyone looking to understand how to effectively deploy cloud technologies (RSA Conference, September 2014)
From the Author
Architecting the Cloud was written to fill a void that existed when I started building my first cloud application back in 2008. Each chapter provides insights gained through my experiences, both things I got right and things I got wrong. My hope is that by sharing these experiences and providing a list of design considerations in a variety of areas of concern, my readers can make more precise design decisions and not have to rely as much on trial and error as I did when I first started. Cloud computing can offer tremendous benefits such as increased speed to market, lower total cost of ownership, and greater flexibility if designed correctly, but there are no silver bullets. To achieve these benefits, a pragmatic approach is required. This book aims to arm the reader with a long list of design considerations to help the reader achieve the goals that the cloud promises.

The book takes you through a roadmap and foundational concepts about how to approach your applications and the cloud whether you are in enterprise IT or a nice greenfield startup. Some of the concepts are available in other places but you will be hard pressed to fine a more concise ordered guide. The author also provides lots of references to other information throughout the chapters.
There are a lot of concepts covered including Rest based API's, Cloud Types, Devops, Security and Compliance (really good) as well as organization impacts. You will probably discover as I did about half way through the book that 99.9 of the stuff that is covered is a great foundation for a modern enterprise IT shop whether headed to the cloud or not. I ended up bookmarking about a million things which is always a good sign.
I've done three enterprise IT cloud projects and I sorely wish I would have had this book before starting them. Although I'm going back to explore some of the chapters in more detail, the book was easy to get through in a weekend. I highly recommend reading it.
Also short enough for people who are terminally busy to finish.
