Only relevant to Amazon Cloud Nov. 14 2009
By Gadget Monster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All it talks about is Amazon's EC2, S3, MapReduce. It does not talk about "Application Architecture". It does not have ideas about how to break up traditional programs into MapReduce paradigm. It should be called Cloud Operations Architecture. If it was named by that title, I'd give it 5 stars. The book itself is not bad, but it will get obsolete very quickly due to its specificity to Amazon.
subtitle should be :Building Applications and Infrastructure in Amazon Cloud

Only cloud in the sky Aug. 24 2009
By J. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cloud is a concept, not an absolute. This book is far too specific around EC2 from Amazon, and the promotion thereof. Alternative approaches are referenced far too rarely, and mostly at the very end. The book also flipped between business models / architectures, to dumping 128 bit encryption code from RSA. No matter who you are, much of this book will not be what you are looking for. I felt it was very biased.

Please note - this book covers only IaaS July 20 2009
By Lior Bar-On - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book - I have nothing to add over the other good reviews. Important point to note is that this book is heavily focused on IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) - Amazon/GoGrid/Rackspace, while using Amazon as the main theme. If you plan to go for Google Apps/Azure/Salesforce/... - this book not directly required and may be pretty hardcore for a start.
FYI

Need an Amazon EC2 and S3 user manual? Jan. 22 2010
By gianouts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is more of an Amazon EC2 and S3 user manual than covering Cloud Application Architecture in general.

Having said that I did find that it still did have some good content although in many areas it was very high level. Some diagrams were also missing from my copy.

There was a good Cloud Computing and Amazon Web Services overview. Cloud ROI, Monitoring & Management, and reiteration that Laws need to be considered were also covered, as were development implications, and in particular multiple-server transaction management.

If you want an overview of Amazon Web Services, EC2 and S3 then this book may be right for you.

Good read but not enough detail Feb. 13 2011
By Dave P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I understand that this was not a how to book but rather an overview of cloud computing. However I would liked to have seen more detail information.
