The Handbook of Cloud Computing which was just released by Springer Publishing provides insights from experts in cloud from academia, laboratories and enterprise and covers a broad range of issues; from the high-level approach to understanding of cloud as concept and practical model to in-depth conversations about high performance computing in the cloud and data-intensive supercomputing applications in a virtualized or on-demand environment, it leaves few stones unturned.
There are a number of books that have come to market this year alone that attempt to tackle the complex topic of cloud computing, but most of them, at least from a cursory browse are either far too general and one-size-fits-all in their approach or they are extremely niche (i.e., simply about CRM, BPM, SOA, etc.).
The books that offer the “big picture” but still manage to branch out to all applicable areas are not easy to come by, but at over 600 pages and supplemented by chapter subheadings that include, “Scientific Data Management in the Cloud” and “High Performance Computing on Competitive Cloud Resources” not to mention a number of case studies, it could very well be one of the more valuable publications for HPC cloud folks this year.
The publisher states that what they’ve released is, “a reference book intended for advanced-level students and researchers in computer science and electrical engineering” and that it can also be “beneficial to computer and system infrastructure designers, developers, business managers, entrepreneurs and investors within the cloud computing-related industry.”
The book was edited by Armando Escalante, CTO of LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Dr. Borko Furht, Chair at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Florida Atlantic University.
