Awesome perspective on a cloudy topic!

Brendon De Meyer

I was gifted this manual from one of my clients. I sat down and read it cover to cover within a day and just loved every single aspect of the manual. From the easy flow, to the tongue in cheek commentary. I also loved the fact that it was vendor neutral even being an HP publication.

I am so used to having to reveiw these technical manuals so this was refreshing, so see a manual aimed at enabling a business choice. This manual should be read by CIO's, CEO's and CFO's so that they make sure they understand what they are investing their money in.

For IT Pro's wanting to push for cloud migration, this is a must read. It will equip you with all the arguments to convince the bean counters do bankroll your latest and greatest IT Playground!

If you are a consultant, I would suggest reading this, and then also giving it to every client who pays you for the time spent in their offices. This will not only ensure that you get the business you need but also help them streamline the business they give you!

HP and Mr. McFedries have put together a publication that I really enjoyed reading and it helped me demystify and explain to my clients in plain simple english what the cloud is and how its going to make their business better!

Well done!

Good starting point to get an insight into the cloud computing topic, as well as useful references to explore further. I've included it in my recommended reading list I provide to others that want to learn more about cloud computing.

Paul has made this book into a easy reading and good to understand book. It gives a general overview on Cloud Computing. The book is also nice to have as a reference before going to the customer.
