“Cloud Computing Architected – Solution Design Handbook” by John Rhoton and Risto Haukioja was published by Recursive Press in May 2011. This book is a great addition to other books about cloud computing.
Cloud Computing is the future – if you believe market forecasts from companies such as Gartner. I think so, too. But everybody should be aware that there won’t be one single cloud solution, but several clouds. These clouds will be hosted at different providers, use products and APIs from different vendors and use different concepts (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS). Thus, in the future you will have to integrate these clouds as you integrate applications today.
The Cloud-Camp was a free „Unconference“, which took place one day before the SOA / Cloud Symposium 2010 in Berlin, Germany. You can find more information about Cloud Camps at http://www.cloudcamp.org.
