With the advent of the Internet, there is a complete paradigm shift in the manner we comprehend computing. Need to enable ubiquity, convenient and on-demand access to resources in highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely accessed, gave birth to the concept of Cloud Computing. The acceptance is so rapid that the notion influences sophisticated innovations in academia, Industry, and research worldwide and hereby change the landscape of Information technology as we thought of.  Through this book, the authors tried to incorporate core principles and the basic notion of cloud computing in a step-by-step manner and tried to emphasize key concepts for clear and thorough insight into the subject.

This book begins with the fundamentals of cloud computing, its service and deployment models, architecture, as well as application.
