Reviews

'Gautam Shroff's new book has arrived at a critical time and ably serves the computer professional wishing explore important new information technology. The past few years have seen an acceleration in the normally rapid pace of technological change. Cloud computing is becoming the new reality. It requires an understanding of virtualization and of the new systems designed to support massively parallel computation in the cloud: map-reduce, Hadoop, Hive, and many others. These techniques in turn make possible very large-scale enterprise analytics, using a variety of modern data-mining algorithms. In a succinct way, the author introduces us to all of these technologies and provides a unique perspective on today's IT infrastructure.' Jeffrey D. Ullman, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University
'Clouds are usually associated with vapor, and are close cousins of fog and mist - Gautam's book is a huge step forward in bringing clarity and tangibility into this exciting next stage of evolution in enterprise IT. Gautam has a deep understanding of the cloud from the technology, customer requirement, service provider and innovator perspectives. I am glad he has translated this wealth of knowledge to the benefit of the greater technical community.' K. Ananth Krishnan, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Consultancy Services
