"Such a primer has been long overdue. There are so many cloud products and platforms from various vendors, including IBM. This book really brings it all together and gives the reader an excellent overview of the various cloud products from IBM. As a consultant who has implemented cloud solutions, the book is a must read for anyone who plans to get an understanding of what it takes to work with cloud platforms. I am really looking forward to a volume 2, which would cover topologies and hybrid solutions in depth."
