Cloud Computing For Dummies (Free PDF)

File Size: 7.07 Mb

Cloud computing is a big new area and requires that a lot of people get familiar with it in a fairly short period of time. That’s why we wrote this book. Some people may want to get deeper into the technological details, while others may care only about the business implications.

We recommend that you read the first five chapters, regardless of how deeply you want to wander into the cloud. These chapters give you context about the cloud and what’s behind the concept. If you want to begin understanding the economics and the available approaches to the cloud, you should read the later chapters.

You can read from cover to cover, but if you’re not that kind of person, but we’ve tried to adhere to the For Dummies style of keeping chapters self-contained so you can go straight to the topics that interest you most. Wherever you start, we wish you well.
