This book is really a potpourri of well-known ideas that has been flying around for years. I am sure most IT specialists already know what is CDN, IPSec, PCI compliance, etc. The level of narration is really basic. The book does not go into detail about any particular topic, so it is by no means a “hands-on” guide. However, it is clear that the author is well aware of modern trends in the cloud computing area, and he conveys them rather clearly, albeit superficially.

Probably, this is a book for managers who ponder moving their departments into the cloud. This is not a book for IT people.

As it is said in this book, “cloud computing is a technology which is evolutionary, not revolutionary”. Same can be said about the book itself.
