Mastering Cloud Computing
Foundations and Applications ProgrammingeBook - 2013
Mastering Cloud Computing is designed for undergraduate students learning to develop cloud computing applications. Tomorrow's applications won't live on a single computer but will be deployed from and reside on a virtual server, accessible anywhere, any time. Tomorrow's application developers need to understand the requirements of building apps for these virtual systems, including concurrent programming, high-performance computing, and data-intensive systems. The book introduces the principles of distributed and parallel computing underlying cloud architectures and specifically focuses on virtualization, thread programming, task programming, and map-reduce programming. There are examples demonstrating all of these and more, with exercises and labs throughout, and a live environment on the Aneka platform where you can experiment and test your work. Explains how to make design choices and tradeoffs to consider when building applications to run in a virtual cloud environmentTest and experiment with a live cloud system on the Aneka platformReal-world case studies include scientific, business, and energy-efficiency considerationsDownload examples and instructor support materials on the book's companion page.
