Overview

A holistic approach to service reliability and availability of cloud computing

Reliability and Availability of Cloud Computing provides IS/IT system and solution architects, developers, and engineers with the knowledge needed to assess the impact of virtualization and cloud computing on service reliability and availability. It reveals how to select the most appropriate design for reliability diligence to assure that user expectations are met.

Organized in three parts (basics, risk analysis, and recommendations), this resource is accessible to readers of diverse backgrounds and experience levels. Numerous examples and more than 100 figures throughout the book help readers visualize problems to better understand the topic—and the authors present risks and options in bulleted lists that can be applied directly to specific applications/problems.

Special features of this book include:

  • Rigorous analysis of the reliability and availability risks that are inherent in cloud computing
  • Simple formulas that explain the quantitative aspects of reliability and availability
  • Enlightening discussions of the ways in which virtualized applications and cloud deployments differ from traditional system implementations and deployments
  • Specific recommendations for developing reliable virtualized applications and cloud-based solutions

Reliability and Availability of Cloud Computing is the guide for IS/IT staff in business, government, academia, and non-governmental organizations who are moving their applications to the cloud. It is also an important reference for professionals in technical sales, product management, and quality management, as well as software and quality engineers looking to broaden their expertise.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For sure, specialists responsible for recommending, providing, or managing cloud platforms for either private or public cloud will profit with having this work on their shelf. I would also like to highly recommend this position for people new to the considered concepts of cloud computing or computer systems reliability as it provides an excellent background for the both areas.”  (IEEE Communications Magazine, 1 October 2013)

“Therefore, it will probably only be of real interest to those who are directly involved in improving or implementing their own systems in a cloud platform.”  (Computing Reviews, 30 November 2012)

This is an outstanding book for anyone working with, or depending on cloud computing systems. I recommend this book to three types of readers. 1) For novices, it has sections that are easy to understand and provide an excellent background in both the general concepts associated with cloud computing as well as reliability and availability considerations. 2) For developers, it has sections that provide a rigorous and heavily referenced analysis of both reliability and availability that can be customized to specific networks or equipment. 3) For those that just want the answers, it has sections that make for a great reference. Stop guessing, buy the book and get the answers from the experts.
