The book starts with an overview of cloud computing including delivery models and services, ethical issues, and major challenges for both users and cloud service providers.

An in-depth discussion of the existing cloud infrastructure and services offered by several cloud service providers is followed by an analysis of cloud computing applications and paradigms. The next few chapters cover concepts related to virtualization, resource management at the application and system level, networking support for cloud computing, cloud storage systems, and cloud security. The last chapter of the book examines computer clouds from the perspective of an application developer and presents a few recipes useful to use basic cloud functions.About the Author:
