Book Description

Putting your company's applications in the cloud will no doubt save your IT department time and money -- but it's very often a more challenging proposition than you might expect. With this book, blogger Chris Moyer ( has created a handy reference of patterns and techniques to properly leverage the benefits the cloud can provide. Readers who have been handed a project and told to "make it scale" can flip through the patterns provided here to get ideas and see what fits the project at hand. Use this book to get a lay of the land and guide your cloud project to successful scalability. **This is an early version of the manuscript -- updates to the chapters currently accessible will be posted as soon as they are made available.
