    In the era of the Internet of Things and with the explosive worldwide growth of electronic data volume, and associated need of processing, analysis, and storage of such a humongous amount of data, it has now become mandatory to exploit the power of massively parallel architecture for fast computation. Cloud computing provides a cheap source of such a computing framework for a large volume of data for real-time applications. It is, therefore, not surprising to see that cloud computing has become a buzzword in the computing fraternity over the last decade.

    Applications of Cloud Computing: Approaches and Practices lays a good foundation for the core concepts and principles of cloud computing applications, walking the reader through the fundamental ideas with expert ease. The book progresses on the topics in a step-by-step manner. It reinforces theory with a full-fledged pedagogy designed to enhance students' understanding and offer them a practical insight into the applications of it.

    It is a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, engineers, practitioners, and graduate and doctoral students working in the field of cloud computing. It will also be useful for faculty members of graduate schools and universities.
