Wenn man ein Buch sucht, dass Managerwissen für Cloud-Computing vermittelt, dann ist dieses Buch genau richtig.
Es vermittelt knapp und kompetent die Themen die zum Cloud-Computing gehören, auch solche, an die man auf den ersten Blick nicht gedacht hätte.
Ein Techniker oder Architekt würde sich vielleicht wünschen, dass einige der Themen detaillierter behandelt werden.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ok introduction to cloud, not really about architecture, content is more relevant for web based SAAS startups. 13. September 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Very very basic intro to cloud, not sure who it's aimed at. If you're a CTO/architect you'll get better value just reading thru all the whitepapers on the amazon AWS site. If you're an experienced architect there are much better books out there to explain architecting for the cloud. Also the dummies guides to cloud computing, hybrid cloud are probably a better read for users who are completely unfamiliar about cloud.
Also be aware of the author'a background which, in terms of cloud experience, has been in web startups. Very different from doing cloud in corporates. For example he evangelizes devops and continuous deployment (I.e. Push button deployments into production). That's great if you're running a web based startup. But if your production rollout encompasses modifying your SAP system, rolling out a new version of your website, updating some web services hooked into your legacy systems - well it ain't going to be push button! You'll have quality gates and be staggering any production rollout!
Similarly a lot of the advice is more pertinent to web based SAAS companies which don't have to do things like hybrid cloud etc... The author takes a good stab at what he thinks is needed, but that's very different from actually having done a hybrid cloud deploy for a large corporation and having to deal with things like enterprise architecture requirements.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pragmatic and objective approach to the cloud 2. Februar 2014
Von Mark Griffin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It's hard finding objective, realistic advice on all things cloud but the author has done a very good job of doing just that. After the first few chapters it became very obvious the author had a lot of experience within corporate IT not just startups. That is a critical piece for those of us in the corporate IT environment where advice on the cloud usually comes from pundits, vendors and others far removed from the reality of the challenges enterprise IT shops face. There is no technology bias or vendor bias in the book and although the author has a lot of experience with AWS he does not try and sell it for all your solutions.

The book takes you through a roadmap and foundational concepts about how to approach your applications and the cloud whether you are in enterprise IT or a nice greenfield startup. Some of the concepts are available in other places but you will be hard pressed to fine a more concise ordered guide. The author also provides lots of references to other information throughout the chapters.

There are a lot of concepts covered including Rest based API's, Cloud Types, Devops, Security and Compliance (really good) as well as organization impacts. You will probably discover as I did about half way through the book that 99.9 of the stuff that is covered is a great foundation for a modern enterprise IT shop whether headed to the cloud or not. I ended up bookmarking about a million things which is always a good sign.

I've done three enterprise IT cloud projects and I sorely wish I would have had this book before starting them. Although I'm going back to explore some of the chapters in more detail, the book was easy to get through in a weekend. I highly recommend reading it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Helps people think like architects about the Cloud 27. Januar 2014
Von Jason Bloomberg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book you are considering now has the mission to help people think like architects about Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing as an approach to IT infrastructure is still emerging, and thus the technical details are still in flux – but the architectural principles of the Cloud are now falling into place. But only by thinking like an architect will you be able to take advantage of the full power of the Cloud.

Architects are in a unique position in the IT shop, because they have one foot in the business and the other squarely ensconced in the technology. They must understand the nuts and bolts of what works and what doesn’t without falling victim to the techie tunnel vision that inflicts so many IT people. But they must also live and breathe the business: its strategy, its goals, and most importantly, its problems.

Architecting the Cloud connects these dots. Mike Kavis has intentionally avoided product or vendor-specific details, focusing instead on the challenges that architects, as well as stakeholders in the architecture, should address. In other words, connecting the business problem with the appropriate solution. A truism to be sure, but easier said than done in the Cloud.

The reason that solving business challenges in the Cloud is so difficult is because the Cloud is not just one thing. It’s many diverse things: SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS service models, Public, Private, and Hybrid deployment models, not to mention diverse value propositions. Some organizations seek to save money with the Cloud, while others want to shift capital to operational expense. On top of these benefits is elasticity: dealing better with unpredictable demand for IT resources.

Never before has architecture mattered so much. Building working solutions in the Cloud that actually address the business need depends upon it. With his hands-on experience architecting such Cloud solutions, Mike Kavis has the experience and insight to lead the way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely honest and enlightening book on how to effectively use the cloud 8. September 2014
Von Ben Rothke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Most books about cloud computing are either extremely high-level quasi-marketing tomes (sometimes written by cloud vendors) about the myriad benefits of the cloud without any understanding of how to practically implement the technology under discussion. The other type of cloud books are highly technical references guides, that provide technical details, but for a limited audience.

In Architecting the Cloud: Design Decisions for Cloud Computing Service Models, author Michael Kavis has written perhaps the most honest book about the cloud available to date. Make no doubt about it; Kavis is a huge fan of the cloud. But more importantly, he knows what the limits of the cloud are, and how cloud computing is not a panacea. That type of candor makes this book an invaluable guide to anyone looking to understand how to effective deploy cloud technologies.

The book is an excellent balance of the almost boundless potential of cloud computing, mixed with a high amount of caution that the potential of the cloud can only be manifest with effective requirements and formal security architecture.

One of the mistakes of using the cloud is that far too many decision makers rush in, without understanding the significant differences (and they are significant) between the 3 main cloud service models.

In chapter 1, he provides a number of enthusiastic cloud success stories to set the stage. He shows how a firm was able to build a solution entirely on the public cloud with a limited budget. He also showcases Netflix, whose infrastructure is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Chapter 3 is titled cloud computing worst practices and the book would be worth purchasing for this chapter alone. The author has a number of cloud horror stories and shows the reader how they can avoid failure when moving to the cloud. While many cloud success stories showcase applications developed specifically for the cloud, the chapter details the significant challenges of migrating existing and legacy applications to the cloud. Such migrations are not easy endeavors, which he makes very clear.

In the chapter, Kavis details one of the biggest misguided perceptions of cloud computing, in that it will greatly reduce the cost of doing business. That is true for some cloud initiatives, but definitely not all, as some cloud marketing people may have you believe.

Perhaps the most important message of the chapter is that not every problem is one that needs to be solved by cloud computing. He cites a few examples where not going with a cloud solution was actually cheaper in the long run.

The book does a very good job of delineating the differences between the various types of cloud architectures and service models. He notes that one reason for leveraging IaaS over PaaS, is that when a PaaS provider has an outage, the customer can only wait for the provider to fix the issue and get the services back online. With IaaS, the customer can architect for failure and build redundant services across multiple physical or virtual data centers.

For many CIO’s, the security fears of the cloud means that they will immediately write-off any consideration of cloud computing. In chapter 9, the author notes that almost any security regulation or standard can be met in the cloud. As none of the regulations and standard dictate where the data must specifically reside.

The book notes that for security to work in the cloud, firm’s needs to apply 3 key strategies for managing security in cloud-based applications, namely centralization, standardization and automation.

In chapter 10, the book deals with creating a centralized logging strategy. Given that logging is a critical component of any cloud-based application; logging is one of the areas that many firms don’t adequate address in their move to the cloud. The book provides a number of approaches to use to create an effective logging strategy.

The only significant issue I have with the book is that while the author is a big fan of Representational state transfer (REST), many firms have struggled to obtain the benefits he describes. RESTful is an abstraction of the architecture of the web; namely an architectural style consisting of a coordinated set of architectural constraints applied to components, connectors and data elements, within a distributed hypermedia system. REST ignores the details of component implementation and protocol syntax in order to focus on the roles of components, the constraints upon their interaction with other components, and their interpretation of significant data elements.

I think the author places too much reliance on RESTful web services and doesn’t detail the challenges in making it work properly. RESTful is not always the right choice even though it is all the rage in some cloud design circle.
While the book is part of the Wiley CIO Series, cloud architects, software and security engineers, technical managers and anyone with an interest in the cloud will find this an extremely valuable resource.

Ironically, for those that are looking for ammunition why the cloud is a terrible idea, they will find plenty of evidence for it in the book. But the reasons are predominantly that those that have failed in the cloud, didn’t know why they were there in the first place, or were clueless on how to use the cloud.

For those that want to do the cloud right, the book provides a vendor neutral approach and gives the reader an extremely strong foundation on which to build their cloud architecture.

The book lists the key challenges that you will face in the migration to the cloud, and details how most of those challenges can be overcome. The author is sincere when he notes areas where the cloud won’t work.

For those that want an effective roadmap to get to the cloud, and one that provides essential information on the topic, Architecting the Cloud: Design Decisions for Cloud Computing Service Models is a book that will certainly meet their needs.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I was looking for 15. März 2015
Von Houman T - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are looking for a book gives you technical insight and knowledge , it is not your book! it is only good for 30000 feet information like reading a magazine for your knowledge upgrade; it talks about high level scenarios and where(not how) to use each one of the Cloud computing components. I'd rather to see something more technology or architecture connected contexts . when you read this book it looks like it afraid to touch the Architecture or solutions in practice OR how it can be tied up with all these scenarios. but its good for the beginners. also paper quality is poor.
