    The Cloud is an advanced and fast-growing technology in the current era. The computing paradigm has changed drastically. It provided a new insight into the computing world with new characteristics including on-demand, virtualization, scalability and many more. Utility computing, virtualization and service-oriented architecture (SoA) are the key characteristics of Cloud computing. The Cloud provides distinct IT services over the web on a pay-as-you-go and on-demand basis. Cloud Computing Technologies for Smart Agriculture and Healthcare covers Cloud management and its framework. It also focuses how the Cloud computing framework can be integrated with applications based on agriculture and healthcare.


    • Contains a systematic overview of the state-of-the-art, basic theories, challenges, implementation, and case studies on Cloud technology 
    • Discusses of recent research results and future advancement in virtualization technology
    • Focuses on core theories, architectures, and technologies necessary to develop and understand the computing models and its applications
    • Includes a wide range of examples that uses Cloud technology for increasing farm profitability and sustainable production
    • Presents the farming industry with Cloud technology that allows it toaggregate, analyze, and share data across farms and the world
    • Includes Cloud-based electronic health records with privacy and security features
    • Offers suitable IT solutions to the global issues in the domain of agriculture and health care for society

    This reference book is aimed at undergraduate and post-graduate programs. It will also help research scholars in their research work. This book also benefits like scientists, business innovators, entrepreneurs, professionals, and practitioners.
