Présentation de l'éditeur
Although the Internet of Things (IoT) is a vast and dynamic territory that is evolving rapidly, there has been a need for a book that offers a holistic view of the technologies and applications of the entire IoT spectrum. Filling this void, The Internet of Things in the Cloud: A Middleware Perspective provides a comprehensive introduction to the IoT and its development worldwide.
It gives you a panoramic view of the IoT landscape―focusing on the overall technological architecture and design of a tentatively unified IoT framework underpinned by Cloud computing from a middleware perspective. Organized into three sections, it:
- Describes the many facets of Internet of Things―including the four pillars of IoT and the three layer value chain of IoT
- Focuses on middleware, the glue and building blocks of a holistic IoT system on every layer of the architecture
- Explores Cloud computing and IoT as well as their synergy based on the common background of distributed processing
The book is based on the author’s two previous bestselling books (in Chinese) on IoT and Cloud computing and more than two decades of hands-on software/middleware programming and architecting experience at organizations such as the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, IBM, BEA Systems, and Silicon Valley startup Doubletwist. Tapping into this wealth of knowledge, the book categorizes the many facets of the IoT and proposes a number of paradigms and classifications about Internet of Things' mass and niche markets and technologies.
Biographie de l'auteur
Honbo Zhou, Ph.D., is currently the general manager of Foton Fleet Telematics Co. Ltd. He was chief software scientist of TongFang Co. Ltd., executive director of the board and chief technology officer of Technovator Pte. Ltd., and chief operating officer of TongFang Software Co. Ltd. Dr. Zhou worked as a research associate on grid computing at Oak Ridge National Laboratory after receiving his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Zurich in 1993. He also worked at IBM, BEA Systems (now Oracle), and other companies in the United States as a senior engineer or manager. He participated in the ASCI Blue Pacific project building the world’s fastest supercomputer in 1996 while at IBM as a software team lead and coordinator for its job scheduler. He masterminded and built a high-performance/cloud-computing system that accomplished the complete annotation of the human genome for the first time in the world while working at a startup in Silicon Valley, which was reported by media such as the San Francisco Chronicle and CNN. He has been one of the pioneers of the Internet of Things and machine-to- machine computing, leading a team of 100-plus developers to build TongFang’s flagship ezM2M Middleware Platform for dozens of vertical IoT applications since 2003, and he has authored two related books in Chinese. He is a frequently invited speaker and evangelist of IoT and cloud computing, adjunct professor of several universities, and vice president of the Middleware Association, and he is a member of a few other related professional associations in China.

- I appreciate the adopted perspective
- It represents a good survey (with references)
- Whole paragraphs are taken verbatim from Wikipedia
- Quite old (2012)
- Not rigorous
- It is a mosaic, a collage... It may be ok, but then I would like to see more effort in organisation, structure, and explicitation of what was not covered.
Among all the IoT related topics, one things still confused many people, or at least me, is that how to monetize this opp. since the IoT ecosystem is much more diversified and complicated than any of the other industries such as mobile internet . There are lots of IoT/M2M related books out there, but large portion of them focus on either the device layer or single vertical market applications, and hence lack of a comprehensive understanding on how to work stakeholders in the ecosystem to build and deploy a device to cloud solution.
In contrast, this book offers a comprehensive overview of each component of the Internet of Things ecosystem, which I believe is important for people to understand the real concept of IoT. Much of the text consists of describing how to catalogue the IoT applications (M2M, RFID, WSN, and Industry automation)and how to build a horizontal platform to support these vertical markets. And finally, lots of valuable examples and vertical applications are provided in this book.
Basically, this book is an impressive piece of work, and the first section alone is worth the price in time saved sifting through standards documents and market research reports. This is probably the only book that can give a complete and concrete picture of what the real Internet of Things will be. There are very few people I know, quite possibly none, that can discuss this topic from the device to cloud layer with corresponding examples so I know that anyone interested in what the Internet of Things actually is will learn something from this book. I certainly did. But most important, it will allow anyone that mentions the term Internet of Things to actually know what they're talking about.

The author demonstrates his broad experiences in middleware development for service oriented architecture over Internet, which matches the vision of future IoT development. This book is especially useful for industrial people who would like to understand the core technology of IoT and plot the M2M strategies for their corporations.
