From the reviews:

“The goal of this book is to be both an introduction and a technical reference to the very current topics of grids, clouds, and virtualization. … The editors of the book, Cafaro and Aloisio, start with a brief introduction, definitions, history, and best-known examples of current technology. … The systems described use academic, commercial, and privately owned resources. … Overall, this book is a good technical reference for the current state of the art and various issues of the topics presented.” (Veronica Lagrange, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2011)

“Grids, Clouds and Virtualization is a collection of nine papers that contribute to understanding an assortment of topics related to this area. The papers are well organized and sequenced in the book, from the most basic and definitional papers through the more advanced and specialized. Because each paper stands on its own, readers of all levels can pick and choose the topics that they have the background to understand and explore. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty, professionals/practitioners, and general readers.” (F. H. Wild III, Choice, Vol. 48 (8), April, 2011)
