Building a Windows It Infrastructure in the Cloud: Distributed Hosted Environments with Awsby David K. Rensin
Synopses & Reviews
Run your entire corporate IT infrastructure in a cloud environment that you control completely—and do it inexpensively and securely with help from this hands-on book. All you need to get started is basic IT experience.
Youll learn how to use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build a private Windows domain, complete with Active Directory, enterprise email, instant messaging, IP telephony, automated management, and other services. By the end of the book, youll have a fully functioning IT infrastructure you can operate for less than $300 per month.
The purpose of this book is to walk a person with basic IT experience through the process of creating a virtual corporate infrastructure using the Amazon Web Services (AWS). This book is intended for people with a basic understanding of networking, email, and the web. This book will not be reference manual for the various software components discussed - rather it will guide the reader through the process of assembling those components into a productive hosted environment.
About the Author
Dave started his career designing and developing software applications and information systems to carry sensitive data over both wired and wireless networks for clients such as the U.S. Army, the Treasury Department, the Secret Service, and the National Guard Bureau. For his work, Dave received a civilian commendation from the U.S. Army.
In 1997, Dave founded one of the first business divisions in the U.S. to develop custom applications for the Palm. His success at developing a solution for synching data between handheld devices and corporate back-end systems led to the creation of RiverBed Technologies in 1998. Riverbed's Scout™ software was eventually licensed to nearly every major manufacturer of handheld devices in the world. In 2000, Dave was named a Mobile Innovator of the Year by Mobile Computing Magazine.
