Usenix/Sage has just officially publised our new book in the Short Topics series: “Foundation for Cloud Computing with VMware vSphere 4”.
Before reading the rest of this article be aware that the target audience for this book is IT Management. It’s an overview of VMware products / technology which enable Cloud Computing. It is by no means intended as a blueprint for cloud computing. If you are a techie this might not be the book for you, we are however working on a more technical book which will detail the process of designing a cloud infrastructure based on VMware products.
Book #21, Foundation for Cloud Computing with VMware vSphere 4, by John Arrasjid, Duncan Epping, and Steve Kaplan, is now online for members and available for purchase. Virtualization is recognized as a foundation for Cloud Computing. This book is an overview of the VMware technologies and how they can support the various services and management pieces required for Cloud architecture. Without diving overly deeply into specific design patterns, it provides insight into the tools to fit your design criteria. Take a look now!
