"Cloud computing often sounds like a marketing gimmick for IT
managers looking to save money on their server farm. In this
insightful book, Koulopoulos shows us why that perception is wrong.
He lays out a compelling case for what cloud computing is, how it
is changing our lives today, and what we can expect in the future
-- as our access to information, personal relationships, and the
businesses we run are transformed in the cloud." -- Myers Dupuy,
