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 environment
Test and experiment with a live cloud system on the Aneka platform
Real-world case studies include scientific, business, and energy-efficiency considerations
