Understanding Cloud Computing by Jo Alice Darden

Book Description

Understanding Cloud Computing provides an authoritative, insiders perspective on leveraging the benefits of cloud computing services and navigating the potential pitfalls. Featuring IT executives representing some of the top companies in the nation, these leaders offer their best practices for implementing virtualization, transforming legacy systems, and reallocating resources for increased capabilities. The authors discuss a range of advantages from reducing costs to effectively planning for disaster recovery while also sharing their strategies for working with vendors, negotiating contracts, bridging knowledge gaps, and customizing solutions that will meet business needs. Because the decision to move to managed services is often a debate between control and flexibility, readers will benefit from the authors perspectives on creating backup plans, evaluating security, managing data, and determining what information is best suited for these services. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the leading technology minds of today, as these insiders offer their key strategies for separating the hype from reality and redefining ITs services with one of todays biggest trends.
