If you want the lay-of-the-land of the cloud space, then Frank Munz's sweeping volume is for you. As you would expect from a Ph.D. the expansive yet down-to-earth thesis begins with a definition of terms and builds to a comprehensive synopsis of cloud architecture.

As you might expect from Oracle's Technologist of the year there is a consistent focus on Oracle's rich middleware technology stack, but does not lose sight of other key technologies such as Oracle VM, Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, and of course database technologies.

This volume is far from being an extended Oracle sales white paper. The majority of the writing covers what cloud is today.
* It compares Rackspace to Amazon cloud offerings
* The importance of SOA and how it is implemented in real terms without sales gibberish
* An extensive coverage of middleware provisioning, domains, filesystems, deployment suggestions, availability and backup and recovery.

This is an architectural document. Don't expect step by step how-to tutorials. I found it refreshing to see a relatively unbiased presentation coving Amazon's, Racksapace's, and Oracle's technologies all in one volume. Important architectural topics such as capacity planning, system scaling, pricing, and load balancing and more are covered in adequate depth.

It is a book in my toolbox I know I'll pull out just to see what Frank said on the topic

Excellent book for both cloud practitioners and novice alike. For people who haven't experienced anything about cloud computing, it's not really easy to understand the concepts and realize the benefits of the cloud. This book approaches the cloud computing from users' point of view to walk the readers through the concepts with real life samples from Amazon and Rackspace. For cloud practitioners, this book provides excellent overview of technical architecture of both Amazon and Rackspace. For the readers who are familiar with Oracle Technology like myself, this book is great way to jump right onto the cloud.

Content of the book is rich so I found interesting chapters which are detailed described, but I don't like parts connected with Oracle and commercial software.
