This book covered the standard SAN, LAN, WAN, and virtual systems. We have the standard diagrams of networking layers and protocols. There are plenty of standard diagrams that anyone familiar with computers and networking can understand.

What is new is the addition of some new terms as FAIS, STP, etc.

There are important notes; instead f being in the margins or foot notes they are in square boxes placed where they are important to the read.

This is a text book so you will have a test book layout with full definition of terms at the end of each chapter. Essentially this is not really about the technology but how it can best be tweaked and used.

Not the whole story, but good at what it covers 2. Dezember 2011
Von Jeff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
First of all, this is not a book for IT novices, nor is this review. The book is quite technical in detail. You need to be up on your communication and storage protocols, and have a good grasp of computer science in order to get the most out of this. If you have this, you'll find this a well researched and thoughtful book on the topic, although it does have some faults.

What I liked about the book was the level of detail. The first part of the book deals with the transition in Ethernet away from Spanning Tree protocol in order to implement Ethernet fabrics. The authors present a very detailed view of how that will work in a VMware ESX environment with Cisco switches. (Given that Riverbed and Cisco are mortal enemies in the WAN Optimization space, it was a bit curious to see how Cisco centric the discussion was on data centers.) I've never seen anything come close to the rigor and detail of that section. They then move on to how to make applications work across the wide area network, the business in which Riverbed is. There's a bit of self-congratulation here, but Riverbed did create this product space and is the market leader. I think they're allowed. The remainder of the book picks up on specific issues and has some very good case studies. One of the authors is a CCIE, and his attention to detail is commendable.

There were a couple of places where they asserted points where I thought the analysis was a bit light. They seem convinced that Ethernet using TRILL, per priority pause, and congestion notification will ensure that no packets are ever discarded. Having done some work in that area, I think there is a big jump from "It works on paper" to "It works." We'll see in the next year.

The other place where I thought they missed the boat was that there were only four pages out of 370 devoted to load balancers and there wasn't even a discussion about Application Delivery Controllers. The load balancing discussion was mostly focused on how that works in a virtualized environment. Maybe I'm all wet, but load balancers and ADC's strike me as being right at the heart of how you flexibly adjust to application load across virtual server instances in high speed 10 Gigabit networks. Certainly the vendors in that space are selling a lot of gear, and so I found that to be a curious omission.

However, if you want a detailed, thoughtful book with real life examples in it, you should start with this book and then augment it with further reading. I liked the flow of topics and thought the writing was as clear as it could be, given the significant amount of technical detail. I learned at least a half a dozen things I did not know from reading the book.

Well recommended.

Well written and info packed, but the target audience is highly technical 19. Januar 2012
Von 80 Shades - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The bad news for me: I was lost after the first chapter. I am not highly technical, and was trying to read the book more from a strategic planning perspective, which this book is not intended to address.

However, the book is well-written, is chocked full of examples and case studies, and is a great reference for a technical resource who is ready to make the "rubber meet the road". While most of it was over my head, I still give it high marks based on organization and the content that I was able to digest.

In summary, recommended for the techies (not most management!).

Private cloud computing in detail. 8. Dezember 2011
Von M. A. Filippelli - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is the best book on cloud computing that I have read.

If I had to sum this book up in one word it would be "complete" It covers everything from storage, service models, vlans, security, hardware, wan migration, cloud management and more. Each subject is covered in detail but concisely. There are ample screen shots. Examples of code, examples of network topology.

If you're a novice network engineer this book will be of some help for you understanding the concept of cloud computing but this is really a book for someone already familiar with cloud computing, the concepts and technologies that drive it.

The Authors Stephen R Smoot and Nam K. Tan talk about the principles of a private cloud, what it is and what it isn't. In a nutshell it's an organization with multiple lan sites that rely on a central infrastructure network. You can do a lot of things with this from manage applications in a server farm rather then installing then on each computer which I think is the biggest benefit. There is also a central file storage piece to this that makes it easier for users to access their files remotely. Smoot and Tan do an excellent job of laying these concepts out.

My favorite chapter: #6 was the chapter on wan optimization because It's what I knew the least about. It talk about scaling your network in and out dynamically based on usage and growth fluctuations and virtual appliances. Through out the book the authors talk about cost cutting measures like cutting down on the number of hardware appliances and replacing them with virtual machines.

Another chapter I really liked was #8 where the authors get into the nuts and bolts of cloud security and cloud management. Through out the book there were some examples of coding that I had not seen before that were interesting.

The subject and chapters flow nicely in an order that makes since. Very well written and edited, a lot of books get into superfluous things that are of very little use or help, not so with this book. Private cloud computing will clear up any cloudiness you have about it.

Great book for engineers, but not for mid-level managers like me 26. April 2012
Von Joel R. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I am a mid-level manager with about 150 people working for me. Our organization was fielding a cloud computing solution and I needed a quick primer on cloud computing so I picked up a copy of this book and promptly passed it on to my engineers because I realized it was written for them and not for me. The overview and case studies were still beneficial, but again the target audience is the engineers who will be designing and implementing the systems.

The first chapter focuses on Next Generation Information Technology Trends, which is really an overview of the underlying building-block technologies for the internet. As these technologies change, there will be various changes across the architecture.

Logically, the next chapter of a book on Cloud Computing would focus on the Next Generation Data Center Architectures and Technologies. This is not a big surprise, despite being a cloud, the data still has to be stored somewhere. With the data being stored somewhere, there has to be a means to transport it from point A to point B.

"Next Generation Wide Area Networks and Service Integration" and "Branch Consolidation and WAN Optimization" are the next two topics in the book, which help the engineers optimize getting the data from the data centers to the users.

I highly recommend this book for engineers. If you are a manager, buy copies for your engineers and read the white papers on cloud computing in CIO magazine instead. This is a great book, but it simply isn't written for folks like me.

Should be titled: Applying WAN Optimization to Private Clouds 26. April 2012
Von Mark Colan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Contrary to the title, this is not a private cloud conceptual book for those getting started. It is a deeply technical book with a focus on WAN Optimization more than Cloud Computing. Aside from a few pages in the first chapter, those looking for a conceptual introduction to private cloud computing will get lost; only deeply technical experts will find the rest useful.

On the acknowledgements page, the authors write: "Wouldn't it be great if we had something to point people to as a they start to get real with the cloud?" My take is that if this was the goal, Chapter 1 seemed promising as a basic introduction, but overall the authors missed their mark with this highly technical book. What's missing from the book is an exploration of pure private cloud computing concepts by itself. The content is hardly introductory, and even the authors seem to realize that as they remark "Kudos if you have come this far" in Chapter 8.

The authors are from Riverbed Technology which, according to their Web site, is about WAN Optimization. Most of the content in this book is about the application of WAN Optimization to Private Clouds. The subject of the book is closer to the application of WAN Optimization to Private Clouds. This book is a deep and technical treatment of that subject, and the authors seem to be experts in their field.

WAN Optimization is useful for some problems - the authors give as an example "a rich private cloud of applications that can be used effortlessly from Ulan Bator to Tierra del Fuego." But WAN Opt it is not fundamental to all private clouds. Rather, it appears to be a complementary technology that will be needed by some but not all solutions. Not everyone needs globally dispersed clouds. Some of those who do will use a combination of dispersed cloud deployments connected with global data grids. WAN Optimization is not specific to clouds: it could apply to many distributed or mainframe solutions.


If you are here to learn about Private Cloud Computing concepts, and don't know much about it yet, this deeply technical book is probably not the place to start, beyond Chapter 1. The book misses the mark on both the title and the mission as stated in the acknowledgements, which is why I give it three stars. If it instead had a title like "Applying WAN Optimization to Private Clouds," I would give it higher marks. But while WAN Optimization is clearly the major topic of the topic of the book, it isn't in the title, and I think that is misleading.
