Interview with authors of Foundations for Cloud Computing

Posted on Tuesday, April 06, 2010 | No Comments

Last week I ran into two of the authors for the new book "Foundations for Cloud Computing with VMware vSphere 4" which is published by USENIX.

John Arrasjid (@vcdx001) and Steve Kaplan (@roidude / http://www.bythebell.com/) were kind enough to give me a quick interview (video embeded below).

We discuss the reasons behind the book, who wrote which bits, the copies sold and what might be coming next.

I have read through most of the book (which is now nicely autographed). Its a good primer on all of the elements in vSphere that enable you to use it as a basis for Cloud computing. However, as John points out in the interview, it does not cover building a Cloud with VMware. If you are thinking of buying the book in order to understand the ways and means of building a Cloud based on VMware, you will be left short.

It was great to bump into John and Steve and thanks to them for being great sports and doing the interview on the fly.
