This book was perfect for me needs. It is an in depth description of current and probably future systems, and yet explained in the typical "dummy" fashion as to be understood by all. If you want a great overview of this booming technology, I highly recommend this book.

I picked this book up because I follow technology stocks and was getting lost trying to understand the cloud and all the attendant issues surrounding it. It was most helpful but I wish the author had published " The Cloud for Really Dumb Dummies"
A shorter version would have been better for me.
