Presenting specific cases as examples, the book walks you through issues that your organization might likely encounter. Written clearly and succinctly, it -- Introduces you to the concepts behind different types of clouds, including those used for storage, those that improve processor and application delivery, and those that mix any and all of these services Covers typical concerns you will hear with regard to such issues as security, application integration, and structural limitations Looks at the future of the cloud, from developments on

Can clouds and virtualization play significant roles in my organization at the same time? Covering the basics of virtualization and clusters and the more advanced strategic considerations of security and return on investment, this book will be your guide to IT's present and future in the cloud, a resource that you will continually turn to.  Coming soon!
