A great introduction to the concepts of cloud computing and the use your business may make of it. Assumes no prior knowledge at all (other than basic familiarity with computers - but importantly from the perspective of a business that uses them, not that of an infrastructure technician). Will guide you through the maze of jargon and enable you to make sensible decisions about how and what to explore further. The most important aspect of the book for me was the balanced perspective - Dr Williams does not pretend that cloud computing will solve all your business issues, but instead presents both the upsides and the hard questions you should be asking your provider before you make any commitments. All in all an accessible, no-nonsense introduction which may not be the last thing you read on cloud computing, but is an excellent place to start.

A fantastic quick-start guide for maximising the potential of the Cloud and taking your business into the 21st Century. I'm in the early stages of starting my own business venture and there's a wealth of options out there for managing your business using online tools, platforms and storage. Understandng it all can be a real chore but "A Quick Start Guide..." distills it all down into 7 simple chapters that cut through the jargon and explain things in layman's terms (there's even a handy glossary - great for non-techies like me!). Of particular use was the chapter on "Moving into the cloud" - a straightforward 5-step guide that walks you through the key considerations for moving into a public cloud.

A cracking book for anyone entering the Cloud, whether your business is well established or you're just starting out.

Nice intro into moving into cloud computing. Covers the basics and jargon like SaaS, PaaS and IaaS - which is what you should know as a fundamental level to avoid people talking rubbish about the cloud :D

A nice comprehensive books, covering all you need to know from a business point of view. Not much high tech jargon, but gets more than the basics across.

This is a good overview of the cloud and what to look for in SaaS, IaaS and PaaS. Some good advice and a nice glossary of terms at the end. Great background which will stimulate further research and even some action.
