With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Whether you’re planning or just starting to think about your long-term cloud strategy, this practical book will help you evaluate existing public and private cloud technologies and service providers. Author James Bond, Chief Technologist for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, shows business and IT executives how to adopt cloud services and transform from traditional managed data center services to a service-oriented cloud environment. You’ll learn real-world lessons in operations, security, billing/financials, application transformation, and deployment.

  • Gain real-world guidance for planning, deploying, and managing IT in a cloud-computing environment
  • Use best practice checklists based on lessons learned in cloud adoption
  • Learn about cloud from the perspective of a consumer and as an owner/operator of your own private or hybrid cloud
  • Get updated definitions and trends in cloud computing, deployment models, and how to build or buy cloud services

        Comments about oreilly The Enterprise Cloud:

        I have found this book very helpful. Very informative on Cloud computing and moving to the Cloud. If you are looking at the Cloud or just need to know more about the Cloud, this is a must read. The only issue I have is it's not in eBook format. Had to download as a PDF file.
