Cloud computing can be difficult to understand at first, but the cost-saving possibilities are great and many companies are getting on board. If you've been put in charge of implementing cloud computing, this straightforward, plain-English guide clears up the confusion and helps you get your plan in place. You'll learn how cloud computing enables you to run a more green IT infrastructure, and access technology-enabled services from the Internet ("in the cloud") without having to understand, manage, or invest in the technology infrastructure that supports them.
Cloud computing is more than a service sitting in some remote data center. It’s a set of approaches that can help organizations quickly, effectively add and subtract resources in almost real time.
Unlike other approaches, the cloud is as much about the business model as it is about technology. Companies clearly understand that technology is at the heart of how they operate their businesses.
Business executives have long been frustrated with the complexities of getting their computing needs met quickly and cost effectively. In a sense, cloud computing has started to become mainstream because these business executives have forced the issue into the forefront.
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.
