Reviews

From the reviews:

“Mahmood (Univ. of Derby, UK) has brought together 35 contributors to develop this book that discusses ‘methods and practical approaches’ to cloud computing … . The book may be used as a text for a course on cloud computing or as a reference for system architects and developers. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (J. Beidler, Choice, Vol. 51 (6), February, 2014)

“The editor achieved his goal of presenting current research and development with respect to frameworks, methods, and practical approaches in cloud computing. … I can recommend this book for readers who already have some background in cloud computing and wish to enhance their knowledge. This would be a good starting point for a PhD student or a post-doc who wants to venture into cloud computing.” (Robert Wojcik, Computing Reviews, November, 2013)
