Cloud Computing Explainedby John Rhoton
Cloud Computing Explained provides an overview of Cloud Computing in an enterprise environment. There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm around cloud-based solutions and services as well as the cost-savings and flexibility that they can provide. It is imperative that all senior technologists have a solid understanding of the ramifications of cloud computing since its impact is likely to permeate the entire IT landscape. However, it is not trivial to introduce a fundamentally different service-delivery paradigm into an existing enterprise architecture.
This book describes the benefits and challenges of Cloud Computing and then leads the reader through the process of assessing the suitability of a cloud-based approach for a given situation, calculating and justifying the investment that is required to transform the process or application, and then developing a solid design that considers the implementation as well as the ongoing operations and governance required to maintain the solution in a partially outsourced delivery model.

This book is the best coverage of cloud computing that I've seen. It includes all dimensions of cloud services, infrastructure, platforms, software. It is a fantastic help for IT managers who got to understand the new technology and also want to know how to put together a solution architecture with all the bespoke application and then they try to make the whole thing work. Think about security, management, governance, risk and all the financial CFO/CIO considerations. Most other books are very narrow and don't explain the real challenges and how to address them. Five stars for sure!
