Editorial Reviews

Review

"Publishers Kogan Page have an enviable track record of putting together excellent quick start guides. This one is no exception as Dr Mark Williams breaks down a seemingly complex subject to the basics. In fact he manages to completely demystify it with an easy to follow introduction, benefits and risks sections and case studies. For this reason, I'd recommend this book to just about anybody." International Life, February 2011" International Life 20110201

Format: Paperback
This is a good overview of the cloud and what to look for in SaaS, IaaS and PaaS. Some good advice and a nice glossary of terms at the end. Great background which will stimulate further research and even some action.

If you're not sure what cloud computing is... get this but you'll find almost all of the information for free on the web. So it's an issue of getting all of the information you need in one spot w/o the time spent searching. I am not sure why I expected more but I did and this wasn't the way to go for me.

I had little or no knowledge of what Cloud Computing really was/is. I'm not into programming, and reading this was simply a matter of understanding what that "mysterious something" is.
I don't know if the book will be of real value to someone who wants to become knowledgeable enough to program "in the cloud", but it did the job for which I read it, and removed the cloud from my understanding - at least enough for my purposes.

I think a good idea to read about Cloud computing. It's the wave of the future. There are risks, but that's why you should read this book.
