“This volume is a collection of contributions from international experts. It presents an overview of grid and cloud database management, with topics ranging from standards and specifications to research projects and case studies. … I recommend this book not only as a technical reference for researchers, students, programmers, and systems engineers, but also as an introduction to cloud and grid computing database paradigms.” (Diego Merani, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2012)
