Important Books on Cloud Computing Part 2

Cloud computing books are a dime a dozen and in this article there has been an attempt to present a near exhaustive list of some of the books on cloud computing. There are a lot of books, both for newbie’s and for advanced users. There has been an attempt in this article to list down the cloud computing books, but this list may change with time as new and better versions of books on the subject come out. This list has been selected based on the user’s reviews and experience. There is an attempt to cover both the categories of users, whether newbie’s or advanced users.

Here is the List:-

1)    Cloud computing for Enterprise Architecture: written by Zaigham Mahmood and Richard Hill and published by Springer. This book provides the reader with a single point of reference for state of the art cloud computing design and implementation techniques. This book examines cloud computing from the perspective of enterprise architecture, asking the question, how do we realize new business potential with our existing enterprises? This book contains topics and features and a foreword by Thomas Erl: and contributions from an international selection of well known experts presenting state of the art enterprise architecture approaches with respect to cloud computing models, frameworks, technologies, and applications.

2)     Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking by Greg Shultz. The amount of data we handle today has reached unprecedented levels and even during the recent economic crisis, there has been no slow down or information recession, but the need to process, store and move data has only increased. Hence IT organizations are looking to do more with what they have while trying to support growth along with new services without compromising on cost and delivery.

This book written by industry veteran Greg Shultz looks at converging IT resources and management techniques for effecting efficient and effective delivery of information services, including enabling of information factories, and the various technologies and techniques available for the achievement of information services delivery. The coverage includes

  • Information services delivery model options and best practices
  • Metrics for efficient E2E IT Management
  • Server, storage. I/O networking, and data centre virtualization
  • Converged and cloud storage services (Iaas, Paas, Saas)
  • Data protection for virtual, cloud, and physical modernization
  • High availability, business continuance, and disaster recovery
  • Data footprint reduction and data protection modernization
  • Data protection for virtual, cloud and physical environments

Cloud Computing, Methodology, Systems and Applications by Lizhe Wang presents cloud computing as a tool that has created a shift from the user of physical hardware and locally managed software enabled platforms as compared to that of cloud computing services. Cloud assembles large networks of virtual services, including hardware (CPU, storage and network), and software resources (databases, message queuing systems, monitoring systems, and load balancers). As the cloud slowly and gradually continues to revolutionize applications in academia, industry, government and many other fields, the move towards this efficient and flexible platform presents challenges both at theoretical and practical levels.
