The first chapter was a bit of a marketing spiel, as is to be expected, if you manage to work you way through that you get to the gold.
It takes the reader through the history of cloud computing,explains the various models and then goes into the pros of using the cloud. This is a great way to introduce the newbie to the concept of the cloud.
The following chapters then go into details on planning, architecture and self provisioning which I actually found useful as I'm planning to present a proposal to my organization on this.
Finally the last couple of chapters go into further details on Iaas, Dbaas and Paas and close with chargebgack and case studies.
It's a great book if you have an Oracle centric architecture managed with EM12C.
A nice way to understand Oracle's version of the cloud and how to implement it.
I found the foundational concepts in the introduction to be well-written, descriptive but not overly verbose. It gave me a good feel for what Cloud Computing is all about and why organisations can benefit. The book makes a good case for this and the underlying consolidation and cost-savings benefits.
What I especially liked later in the book was the description of new person roles in the cloud environment and the suggested people and skills mix that can be sourced from existing IT people roles.
The later chapters cover each topic in detail, e.g. Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Database-as-a-Service and how Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c allows the Cloud Administrators to create and manage a complex environment of many virtual servers, databases etc. The book also expounded on the benefits of Self-Service, a hallmark of cloud computing and how this can be accomplished by Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. There are excellent diagrams of the plan, develop, test, implement cycles and roles and responsibilities of cloud administrators and self-service users.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand and implement cloud computing and how to accomplish this using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. The book is well-organised and explains the subject in an easy-to-understand manner.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review, though I would unreservedly recommend this book.
The book appears almost a rewrite of the Oracle sales pitch for this technology. A salesman's Powerpoint presentation?
The book contains an overwhelming amount of "management speak". Perhaps of use for impressing clients if you are a management consultant.
