Autor: Haley Beard

“The #1 best-selling Cloud Computing book of all time, revised and updated to keep pace with today’s ever-changing developments, possibilities and opportunities. Updates and revisions throughout.
The first edition of this book is regarded as a classic in its field. Now, in an expanded and updated version, the authors once again present a step-by-step guide to Managing Cloud Computing Initiatives.

Computing as a utility has arrived. Companies are shifting from a world in which we run computers, to one in which we pay for computing. The benefits are tremendous: Cost-effective infrastructure that scales as needed, and an ability to focus on the business rather than the platforms. But the risks are high, and cloud computing may not be ready for prime time. This book offers a first-time in-depth look into the managed processes for cloud computing.

How reliable is the cloud? Enterprises demand predictable service levels, reliable delivery, and committed availability. This book looks at what level of service we should demand – and can expect – from cloud computing infrastructure, as well as tools and best practices for measuring it.

New computing means new management. This book covers emerging best practices for managing applications when they’re running in the cloud.

Considering the increasing number of IT Professionals and their Organizations who want to be actively involved in Cloud Computing Management, this book, which paves the way for a strong Foundation, should do at least as well as the first edition, which is a bestseller.”
