2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing, 14. Oktober 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Programming Amazon EC2 (Kindle Edition)
I ordered this book several weeks ago and had it lying on my desk since then. Finally, I had the
time to read it on a transatlantic flight last week. In short: I am a bit disappointed. There is nothing
technically inaccurate in the book (as far as I can tell), however it is far too high level. Don't get me
wrong, it's still a nice overview. However, for a text book about Amazon Web Services the content is
just not detailed enough.

Also there is a such a difference in style compared to George Reese's book which is available from
the same publisher (O'Reilly). If you are looking for an O'Reilly book about Cloud Computing, then
I recommend Reese's book. It's a classic that comes with an opinion, explains AWS limitations and
explains workarounds to overcome these limitations (however, quite some of these workarounds,
such as MySQL provisioning, are outdated by now).

Interesting to see that Werner Vogels, the CTO of Amazon has written the foreword of van Vliet's
book. It might be just me, but I would prefer to read more about technical tradeoffs and the
limitations of AWS instead (otherwise the AWS documentation is just as good). As you can guess, I
personally favor Reese's book over this book written by van Vliet (or possibly the more up to date
Cloud Computing book written by F. Munz).

I'll still rate it with 2 stars since it is not too expensive for what you get.
