Overview

The Cloud Computing Bible is a complete reference to cloud computing that presents the technologies, protocols, platforms and infrastructure that make cloud computing possible and desirable. Many of the cloud computing books on the market today are small books of 300 pages or less and the larger books tend to be programming books or security titles. A longer format book such as Cloud Computing Bible allows a complete definition of the topic as well as in-depth introductions to essential technologies and platforms. Additionally it allows significant technologies to be presented in a form that provides enough detail for the reader to determine if it is something that they are interested in learning more about. It is important to stress platform and technologies as the main subject and intersperse that with products in order to provide an extended life span, but have current appeal. The book will be divided into five parts: The Value Proposition, Platforms, Infrastructure, Services and Applications, and The Mobile Cloud.
