9780124046276: Cloud Computing: Theory and Practice

Cloud Computing: Theory and Practice provides students and IT professionals with an in-depth analysis of the cloud from the ground up. Beginning with a discussion of parallel computing and architectures and distributed systems, the book turns to contemporary cloud infrastructures, how they are being deployed at leading companies such as Amazon, Google and Apple, and how they can be applied in fields such as healthcare, banking and science. The volume also examines how to successfully deploy a cloud application across the enterprise using virtualization, resource management and the right amount of networking support, including content delivery networks and storage area networks. Developers will find a complete introduction to application development provided on a variety of platforms. You can learn about recent trends in cloud computing in critical areas such as: resource management, security, energy consumption, ethics, and complex systems. You can get a detailed hands-on set of practical recipes that help simplify the deployment of a cloud based system for practical use of computing clouds along with an in-depth discussion of several projects. You can understand the evolution of cloud computing and why the cloud computing paradigm has a better chance to succeed than previous efforts in large-scale distributed computing.

Review:

"There are not many books in this area that focus on theory as well as practice, and this is where this author shines. He has beautifully blended theory with rich mathematical rigor and real-life practical examples from various infrastructure providers. The book explains parallel and distributed paradigms in a very clear way."--ComputingReviews.com, January 27, 2014 "Marinescu presents a textbook on the main ideas related to cloud computing, in which computation and data storage are done by large dedicated systems accessible through the Internet rather than by individual or company systems. Among his topics are parallel and distributed systems, cloud infrastructure, cloud resource management and scheduling, storage systems, security, and complex systems and self-organization."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 "The author offers real-world examples and covers a lot of ground that will enable network architects to speed up the process of a cloud computing deployment.In a nutshell, Cloud Computing: Theory and Practice is an in-depth title that should be on the virtual or physical books shelf of anyone serious about cloud computing."--HelpNetSecurity.com, July 31, 2013 ".it's an excellent resource for those tasked with developing and architecting sophisticated cloud systems and applications. The book also details how to integrate CDN (content delivery networks) into the cloud."--RSAConference.com blog, July 22, 2013
