Présentation de l'éditeur

Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world use of cloud-based services.

In Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture, Thomas Erl, one of the world’s top-selling IT authors, teams up with cloud computing experts and researchers to break down proven and mature cloud computing technologies and practices into a series of well-defined concepts, models, technology mechanisms, and technology architectures, all from an industry-centric and vendor-neutral point of view. In doing so, the book establishes concrete, academic coverage with a focus on structure, clarity, and well-defined building blocks for mainstream cloud computing platforms and solutions.

Subsequent to technology-centric coverage, the book proceeds to establish business-centric models and metrics that allow for the financial assessment of cloud-based IT resources and their comparison to those hosted on traditional IT enterprise premises. Also provided are templates and formulas for calculating SLA-related quality-of-service values and numerous explorations of the SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS delivery models.

With more than 260 figures, 29 architectural models, and 20 mechanisms, this indispensable guide provides a comprehensive education of cloud computing essentials that will never leave your side.

Skin deep treatment of topics 27 septembre 2013
Par R. TA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As the title of this book says, it's mainly about "concepts" and "architecture" of Cloud Computing, i.e. a very thin treatment of all topics, with lots of diagrams (they are nicely drawn though), providing almost no insight into how each concept may be implemented using what current hardware or software technology. The rhythm of the book is like this: if you put concept C and concept D together, and add a new concept E, which is described at a very very high level in maybe one paragraph of text, then you'll get this architecture diagram X. Now that you know a little bit about concept E, let's put concept A and concept B and concept E together, and you'll get this architecture diagram Y. Repeat ad infinitum. If you have the stamina to follow this rhythm to the end of the book, you'll be able to talk BIG WORDS about cloud computing. But if someone asks you more about each of these "concepts", how they are implemented in real life (or whether they are actually implemented by any cloud vendors at all), I doubt that you can provide an answer, I can't. The prose is well composed, without crazy grammar errors like lots of other technical books.

Very interesting, informative and recommendable to get an understanding for cloud computing – some room for improvement 30 janvier 2015
Par Peter de Toma sen. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Knowing the ICT history and its milestones – mainframes, minis, proprietary system network architectures, micros and workstations, CISC/RISC technologies with their operating systems, database/data communications software, data center services, middleware, application software solutions, internet, LAN/WAN, worldwide web, e- business, smartphones, outsourcing incl. offshoring concepts and services, web 2.0 etc. – I wanted to better understand what is behind the term “cloud computing”.

This book is written for: “IT practitioners and professionals, IT managers and decision makers, professors and students and educational institutions, business managers, technology architects and developers.” (Page 4).

I do not know why the authors did not mention ICT and Business Management Consultants who provide important services for Cloud Computing candidates and customers.

This excellent book was very revealing. It starts with a very short overview of the ICT milestones ending with the statement on page 27 “It wasn’t until 2006 that the term “cloud computing” emerged in the commercial arena. It was during this time that Amazon launched its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) services that enabled organizations to “lease” computing capacity and processing power to run their enterprise applications. Google Apps also began providing browser-based enterprise applications in the same year, and three years later, the Google App Engine became another historic milestone.”

Then the authors provide definitions published by Gartner, Forrester Research, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and by the authors themselves: “Cloud computing is a specialized form of distributed computing that introduces utilization models for remotely provisioning scalable and measured resources.”

In this chapter 3 readers find Business Drivers, Technology Innovations, Basic Concepts and Terminology, Goals and Benefits, Risks and Challenges

Chapter 4 provides Fundamental Concepts and Models, in Chapter 5 we find the Cloud Enabling Technology, Chapter 6 covers Fundamental Cloud Security, which are followed by Part II explaining Cloud Computing Mechanisms, Part III Cloud Computing Architecture, Part IV Working with Clouds and Part V with 7 Appendices not less important than the aforementioned chapters and Parts I-III.

The authors describe strengths, challenges and risks when users want to introduce and apply cloud computing with a bias towards cloud computing compared to in-house resp. on-site computing.
When they compare costs of cloud computing with costs of on-site computing it is not evident if the latter is already based on cost savings and quality improvements achieved through outsourcing and offshoring. In most of these – few and relatively simple - examples the cloud computing costs are significantly below the total cost of on-site resp. in-house computing.

In my view the risks and exposures of cloud computing are mentioned in this book, however the superficially informed decision maker is not sufficiently sensitized when complex moves to cloud computing are at stake.

C-Level decision makers should not delegate the decision to ICT managers without understanding the areas of Service Level Agreements, the core of the contracts with the cloud computing providers, security issues, billing mechanisms, legally executable rights, etc. etc. All details in the chapters 14: Cloud Delivery Model Considerations, 15: Cost Metrics and Pricing Models and 16: Service Quality Metrics and SLAs (all in Part IV) must be analyzed, checked and evaluated before C-Level executives make an informed decision. I am sure that ICT managers and especially CIOs support this view when they prepare a cloud computing business case for CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CMOs and CSOs (Marketing and Sales Executives) without irritating them with techno-language and acronyms.

Cloud computing today is a very wide, complex, dynamic and highly competitive field, many terms are proprietary, invented and coined by cloud service providers, sometimes difficult to understand and to compare, therefore clear definitions of terms are very important.

Especially important is the section 16.3 SLA Guidelines (Pages 413-415 in chapter 16); the authors among other things are “considering independent SLA Monitoring … it may be in the best interest of a cloud consumer to hire a third-party organization” which brings me back to my observation that they do not mention ICT and Business Management Consultants as a target group for this book.

The book does not reveal any information about the size of the cloud computing market, the players, market shares, rankings etc.

There is some room for improvement – see above; an appendix with all the acronyms in this book with definitions and explanations is necessary, because it is annoying to find unexplained acronyms. Readers not familiar with the many acronyms need to google resp. consult Wikipedia what should be avoided.

Despite some room for improvements, I gave this book five stars because in my mind it is currently the best, most detailed and neutral book (not favoring any provider) I could find on the market.

With the graphics and the possibility to view over 260 diagrams online and download them the authors provide an outstanding service to the reader resp. the customer; thus I consider the book as excellent.

Heavily verbose book 22 octobre 2013
Par Karel H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I liked the structure and scope of the book, however disliked the verbosity of the book.

I had all the time a feeling like 'haven't I read this five pages before?'. I believe the content could easily fit into 150 pages, this is wasting the time of the readers, and also boring.

Colorful but lacking in depth 17 novembre 2013
Par CTRay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Seems like the author packed in every bit of data related to cloud computing but didn't give much insight into the topic. Lots of colorful graphics but it felt like they were just padding the text instead of adding to it.

Excellent Cloud Reference for both Business and IT 24 juillet 2013
Par Kelvin D. Meeks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
First, let me say - this is an excellent book. The content is well organized, well written, and is useful as a reference for both business as well as technical personnel. With the information in this book, you will have established a firm foundation from which to define pilot projects to explore Cloud Computing initiatives within your own company, as well as being better informed as to what considerations should be of paramount concern if you need to work through an RFI, RFP, or RFQ process. Consequently, you will also be much better prepared for evaluating various Cloud Vendor service offerings.

What I particularly appreciate about the Thomas Erl series of books published by Pearson Education in the Prentice Hall Series, is the obvious attention to detail and thoroughness of the the treatment for a given topic. This book continues that fine tradition.

With such a broad and deep topic as Cloud Computing, certainly no one book can be the definitive reference. However, this one is a good first step to acquiring mastery within the domain of Cloud Computing, and I highly recommend that you add it to your bookshelf. It will help you navigate further in your exploration of the complex issues and challenges in devising cloud strategies.

Another excellent benefit of this book (for a large organization): Providing a common lexicon as the basis for establishing a common understanding of the concepts, architecture patterns, risks, and terminology of Cloud Computing.

Of particular note: Interspersed throughout the text are citations of real-world case studies.

At 487 pages, this is a great value for the price.
