Dont judge a book by its cover - this is an EXCELLENT read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Brief Guide to Cloud Computing: An essential guide to the next computing revolution. (Brief Histories) (Paperback)
I bought about 10 books on Cloud Computing as I needed to `hit the ground running' for a position which covered everything to do with Cloud Computing and SaaS (or XaaS as I should say). Despite the rather dull cover this book is an excellent read and covers many issues related to Cloud Computing with excellent examples and a broad range of subjects. It's not weighty or over technical and covers many of the basic points well. I'd actually completed my Masters on delivering government services online and thought I'd replace achademic bulk with real-life examples. This book is easy to read and relevant. It covers current Cloud applications, various industry services and some related and fascinating subjects such as the green benefits of using Cloud.
Great stuff - a great book
