Cloud Computing Concepts, Technology & Architecture

Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & ArchitectureDuring my holiday I read a book on “Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture". I found this book as an excellent resource for IT professionals and managers who want to learn and understand cloud computing, and who need to select or build cloud systems and solutions. It lays the foundation for cloud concepts, models, technologies and mechanisms. As the book is vendor-neutral, it will remain valid for many years. I will recommend this book to Oracle customers, partners and users for their journey towards cloud computing. This book has the potential to become the basis for a cloud computing manifesto, comparable to what was accomplished with the SOA manifesto - Jürgen Kress.

Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world usage of cloud-based services.

In Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture, Thomas Erl, one of the world's top-selling IT authors, teams up with cloud computing experts and researchers to break down proven and mature cloud computing technologies and practices into a series of well-defined concepts, models, technology mechanisms, and technology architectures, all from an industry-centric and vendor-neutral point of view. In doing so, the book establishes concrete, academic coverage with a focus on structure, clarity, and well-defined building blocks for mainstream cloud computing platforms and solutions.

Subsequent to technology-centric coverage, the book proceeds to establish business-centric models and metrics that allow for the financial assessment of cloud-based IT resources, and their comparison to those hosted on traditional IT enterprise premises. Also provided are templates and formulas for calculating SLA-related quality-of-service values and numerous explorations of the SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS delivery models.

With over 260 figures, 29 architectural models, and 20 mechanisms, this indispensable guide provides a comprehensive education of cloud computing essentials that will never leave your side.

The book is available at Service Tech Books or at Amazon. Looking for additional SOA books or if you have published a book, please feel free to add it to our publications wiki!

Canonizing a Language for Architecture: An SOA Service Category Matrix Published at Service Technology Magazine Issue LXXII

Services have to meet different architecture and governance requirements and their relevance is determined by how the services are reused. The arrangement and structure significantly affect the analysis and design of the services, which in turn determine the level of granularity. Categorizing services makes it easy to arrange them according to service usage in the procedural landscape, which helps prevent unwanted entanglements.

SOA architectures that have not undergone categorization quickly become "adapter" SOAs that lack a clear division of responsibilities. The orchestration of business processes in these architectures is interspersed with technical service calls that can lead to unaccountable call sequences.

To tackle these challenges, a vocabulary that SOA professionals can use to describe different types of services has been developed. We explore the various possibilities for categorizing SOA services in this article, before introducing the range of service categories that we have successfully implemented in projects. The SOA service categorization matrix in Figure 1 contextualizes the concepts that are presented.
