Review:

"It takes us from a basic introduction to the cloud through to operating a cloud environment...the book does have the advantage of vendor/product independence.As an introduction for IT professionals and as background reading for some exam-based courses, it serves the purpose." Score: 7 out of 10--BCS.org, February 2014
