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.

  • Learn about recent trends in cloud computing in critical areas such as: resource management, security, energy consumption, ethics, and complex systems
  • 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
  • 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

From the Back Cover:

The book starts with an overview of cloud computing including delivery models and services, ethical issues, and major challenges for both users and cloud service providers. The introductory chapter, accessible to a lay person is followed by a review of concepts in parallel and distributed systems important for understanding the basic challenges in the design and use of computer clouds. An in-depth discussion of the existing cloud infrastructure and services offered by several cloud service providers is followed by an analysis of cloud computing applications and paradigms. The next few chapters cover concepts related to virtualization, resource management at the application and system level, networking support for cloud computing, cloud storage systems, and cloud security. The last chapter of the book examines computer clouds from the perspective of an application developer and presents a few recipes useful to use basic cloud functions.
