Publisher Comments:

Cloud computing continues to emerge as a subject of substantial industrial and academic interest. Although the meaning and scope of "cloud computing" continues to be debated, the current notion of clouds blurs the distinctions between grid services, web services, and data centers, among other areas. Clouds also bring considerations of lowering the cost for relatively bursty applications to the fore. Cloud Computing: Principles, Systems and Applications is an essential reference/guide that provides thorough and timely examination of the services, interfaces and types of applications that can be executed on cloud-based systems. The book identifies and highlights state-of-the-art techniques and methods for designing cloud systems, offers balanced coverage of related technologies that collectively contribute towards the realization of cloud computing, and presents mechanisms and schemes for linking clouds to economic activities. With an emphasis on the conceptual and systemic links between cloud computing and other distributed computing approaches, this text also addresses the practical importance of efficiency, scalability, robustness and security as the four cornerstones of quality of service. Topics and features: Explores the relationship of cloud computing to other distributed computing paradigms, namely peer-to-peer, grids, high performance computing and web services Presents the principles, techniques, protocols and algorithms that can be adapted from other distributed computing paradigms to the development of successful clouds Includes a Foreword by Professor Mark Baker of the University of Reading, UK Examines cloud-practices and applications, and highlights early deployment experiences Elaborates the economic schemes needed for clouds to become viable business models This book will serve as a comprehensive reference for researchers and students engaged in cloud computing. Professional system architects, technical managers, and IT consultants will also find this unique text a practical guide to the application and delivery of commercial cloud services. Dr. Nick Antonopoulos is Professor and Head of the School of Computing at the University of Derby, UK. Dr. Lee Gillam is a Lecturer in the Department of Computing at the University of Surrey, UK.

This essential reference is a thorough and timely examination of the services, interfaces and types of applications that can be executed on cloud-based systems. Among other things, it identifies and highlights state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies.

Synopsis:

Cloud computing has recently emerged as a subject of substantial industrial and academic interest, though its meaning and scope is hotly debated. For some researchers, clouds are a natural evolution towards the full commercialisation of grid systems, while others dismiss the term as a mere re-branding of existing pay-per-use technologies. From either perspective, "cloud" is now the label of choice for accountable pay-per-use access to third party applications and computational resources on a massive scale. Clouds support patterns of less predictable resource use for applications and services across the IT spectrum, from online office applications to high-throughput transactional services and high-performance computations involving substantial quantities of processing cycles and storage. The concept of clouds seems to blur the distinctions between a variety of technologies that encompass grid services, web services and data centres, and leads to considerations of lowered-cost provisioning for bursty applications. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the state of the art in cloud computing, highlighting and clarifying the conceptual and systemic links with other distributed computing approaches.
