Das Herausgeberwerk zeigt Chancen und Risiken des Cloud Computings auf, bringt Lesern das Thema durch anschauliche Beispiele aus Forschung und Praxis näher und zeigt die Implikationen auf, die aus dieser neuen Infrastruktur resultieren. Die Beitragsautoren präsentieren technische Lösungen, Geschäftsmodelle und Visionen, die einerseits die Herausforderungen und Hürden des Cloud Computing aufgreifen – technisch, rechtlich, prozessbezogen – und andererseits die Chancen und Nutzen dieses Architekturansatzes in den Mittelpunkt stellen. Es ist zeitgemäß, IT-Infrastrukturen, Daten und Applikationen aus der lokalen Umgebung in eine Cloud auszulagern. Der Anwender kann sich der angebotenen IT-Dienstleistungen unter Nutzung von Self-Service-Ansätzen bedienen, in Abhängigkeit davon, was und wieviel er gerade benötigt – und auch nur dafür wird gezahlt. Bereitgestellt, gewartet und aktualisiert werden die IT-Ressourcen zentral. Je nach Art der IT-Dienstleistung, die über die Cloud bereitgestellt werden, unterscheidet man zwischen IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service, PaaS – Platform as a Service und SaaS – Software as a Service. Der Sicherheitsbedarf und die Leistungsfähigkeit der Unternehmens-IT entscheiden darüber, ob man diesen Zentralisierungsansatz unternehmensintern in einer Private Cloud oder unternehmensextern in einer Public Cloud umsetzt. Sogenannte Hybrid Clouds sind ein Mittelweg, der sich immer stärker etabliert. Das Buch richtet sich an alle, die sich umfassend und praxisnah zum Thema Cloud Computing informieren möchten und die nach einer modernen Infrastruktur für die Umsetzung von Digitalisierungsansätzen suchen.

Guide to Cloud Computing for Business and Technology Managers: From Distributed Computing to Cloudware Applications unravels the mystery of cloud computing and explains how it can transform the operating contexts of business enterprises. It provides a clear understanding of what cloud computing really means, what it can do, and when it is practical to use. Addressing the primary management and operation concerns of cloudware, including performance, measurement, monitoring, and security, this pragmatic book: Introduces the enterprise applications integration (EAI) solutions that were a first step toward enabling an integrated enterprise Details service-oriented architecture (SOA) and related technologies that paved the road for cloudware applications Covers delivery models like IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, and deployment models like public, private, and hybrid clouds Describes Amazon, Google, and Microsoft cloudware solutions and services, as well as those of several other players Demonstrates how cloud computing can reduce costs, achieve business flexibility, and sharpen strategic focus Unlike customary discussions of cloud computing, Guide to Cloud Computing for Business and Technology Managers: From Distributed Computing to Cloudware Applications emphasizes the key differentiator—that cloud computing is able to treat enterprise-level services not merely as discrete stand-alone services, but as Internet-locatable, composable, and repackageable building blocks for generating dynamic real-world enterprise business processes.

Cloud computing promises to revolutionize IT and business by making computing available as a utility over the internet. This book is intended primarily for practising software architects who need to assess the impact of such a transformation. It explains the evolution of the internet into a cloud computing platform, describes emerging development paradigms and technologies, and discusses how these will change the way enterprise applications should be architected for cloud deployment. Gautam Shroff provides a technical description of cloud computing technologies, covering cloud infrastructure and platform services, programming paradigms such as MapReduce, as well as 'do-it-yourself' hosted development tools. He also describes emerging technologies critical to cloud computing. The book also covers the fundamentals of enterprise computing, including a technical introduction to enterprise architecture, so it will interest programmers aspiring to become software architects and serve as a reference for a graduate-level course in software architecture or software engineering.

Melanie Holloway explores a cloud broker offering service level agreement negotiation and monitoring as a service to consumers. She proposes a negotiation mechanism, which enables the achievement of economically efficient agreements, and an approach for reliable consumer side availability monitoring in conjunction with strategies for robust monitor placement. The author addresses the loss of control of consumers over critical aspects, specifically quality of service, when using services from the cloud.Basically, the cloud computing paradigm places the responsibility for resource management on the provider side. Hence, the control over cloud service performance is very limited on the consumer side.
