Cloud Computing: Concepts & Technologyorganizes proven and mature cloud computing technologies and practices into a series of well-defined concepts, models, and technology mechanisms. In doing so, it establishes the first complete and concrete foundation for learning, teaching, and understanding the field of cloud computing. Best-selling service technology author Thomas Erl and two leading cloud technology experts present modern cloud technology in a vendor-neutral manner that fully aligns with common industry usage. They focus on demonstrating how cloud technology mechanisms operate at a conceptual and architectural level, and how these are combined to establish the most common cloud-based environments and solutions. Through this approach, they eliminate the ambiguity and confusion that has plagued the cloud industry, making it easier to understand alternatives and ultimately make better choices about strategy, planning, deployment, and management. Coverage includes: Cloud delivery and deployment models, including IaaS; SaaS; and PaaS Cloud benefits, including agility, scalability, elasticity, and resilience Cloud enabling technologies, technology mechanisms, and architecture Security in cloud environments Provider perspectives on implementation and management Consumer perspectives on usage and management Economic metrics and cloud pricing Technical metrics and cloud SLAs Cloud contracts Appendices include case study conclusions, industry standards, vendor lists, virtualization platform solutions and vendors, sample pricing policies and SLAs, and brief previews of emerging technologies.
