Cloud computing presents a promising approach for implementing scalable information and communications technology systems for private and public, individual, community, and business use.
Achieving Federated and Self-Manageable Cloud Infrastructures: Theory and Practice overviews current developments in cloud computing concepts, architectures, infrastructures and methods, focusing on the needs of small to medium enterprises. The topic of cloud computing is addressed on two levels: the fundamentals of cloud computing and its impact on the IT world; and an analysis of the main issues regarding the cloud federation, autonomic resource management, and efficient market mechanisms, while supplying an overview of the existing solutions able to solve them. This publication is aimed at both enterprise business managers and research and academic audiences alike.

Reviews and Testimonials
"..written exclusively by renowned experts in their field, this book thoroughly discusses the concepts of federation in clouds, resource management and brokerage, and solutions-such as cloud middleware implementations and use, monitoring in clouds from a practical point of view, enterprise experience, energy constrains, and applicable solutions for securing clouds.
And that's what makes this book so valuable, for the researcher, but also for the practitioner, to develop and operate these cloud infrastructures more effectively, and for the user of these clouds. For the researcher, it contributes to the actual and open research areas in federated clouds." [...] "For the practitioner and user, it provides real use cases demonstrating how to build, operate, and use federated clouds, which are based on the real experience of the authors themselves. Practical insight and guidance, lessons learned, and recommendations."
