Cloud Computing Book

Overview of Cloud Computing

This book serves to fill a void in introductory textbook on cloud computing publishing. The target audience are readers with some technical background that are also interested in the business aspects of cloud computing. The book intentionally does not focus on technical details and does not include step-by-step instructions in order to avoid becoming obsolete too quickly. While new tools and concepts are sure to continue to come up at a rapid pace, the bulk of the book should remain true and useful for a number of years. Examples are usually based on the Google Cloud Platform, but the principles covered in the book are equally relevant to users of other cloud platforms.
