Format: Paperback
Impulse buy, out of date and no better than online material. Surprised O'Reilly would publish this.

Not pleased and learnt nothing new (and is out of date) after only a day on the open stack wiki.

Good content but far too little of it 26 Aug. 2011
By Michael Richardson - Published on
Format: Paperback
At only 79 pages, this book lacks depth in a serious way. I'm surprised that it would go to publishing, and that it would cost so much while offering so little. It is also almost entirely devoted to Nova, with topics like Swift receiving only 3 pages of coverage, most of which is diagrams.

I wouldn't recommend buying this book because there is nothing here that you couldn't learn from for free.

Really not worth it 7 Dec. 2011
By rmk - Published on
Format: Paperback
There really isn't much content in this book you cannot already find in the online manuals, which in themselves are woefully inadequate. If you have absolutely no idea what Openstack is, this book may have some value for you. If you're an administrator who is looking for some depth regarding how to install or configure Openstack, I suggest looking elsewhere.

This book really should not have been more than $10 and that's pushing it.

Don't waste your time or money. 5 Jun. 2012
By Andrew Cathrow - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
There's little to no content in here and it's woefully out of date.
Impulse buy - I should have read the reviews.

Very shallow introduction to OpenStack 26 Dec. 2011
By BrianLy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had never spent time looking into OpenStack before reading this book. It gave me an overview of the components, but it really provided very little beyond what the documentation would have given me. You need to have some experience with Amazon Web Services to appreciate the content so it is definitely not a good first book on "cloud" technology. I read this on my Kindle DX and the illustrations were OK, but I think they'd have been unpleasant on a regular Kindle.

Terrible book. 16 Jan. 2013
By Shaun Daniels - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't waste your time on this one. Its like a summary for people who already know open stack. I don't see any value in this for anyone.
