    Comments about oreilly Getting Started with Citrix® CloudPortal™:

    This book explains from the ground up about how cloud computing works and how Cloud Portal fits in. It is written at a level that is both informative and easy to understand.

    The installation section covers the prerequisites required for the installations as well as the step by step guide to the implementation, configuring, deployment and finally management.

    This is the kind of book you pick up and open, and just get on with what's inside, rather trying to decipher what point the author was trying to get over to you.

    Would recommend this as a, as the title suggests, getting started guide to the subject.

    I think technically the book meets your expectations and is easy to read, I recommend this book because I believe that every cloud has to implement security that the author described and explained in this book.
