Cloud Services for Dummies ebook
Two foundational services are essential for cloud computing to become a strategic part of the overall computing infrastructure: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for access to compute and storage resources in an on-demand model and Platform as a Service (PaaS), which sits on top of IaaS and enables you to build applications to support the business.
