||OS X App Development with CloudKit and Swift|
This book is your step-by-step guide to learning OS X app development using CloudKit and Swift.
All the development will be done using Apple's Swift 2 programming language. You'll see how to define data for your app and build a prototype with Sketch 3 and Keynote. Using CloudKit to store OS X application data, and separate public and private data, readers will learn how to control which data can or cannot be changed in a public data store. OS X App Development with CloudKit and Swift takes you from prototyping your app with Sketch 3 all the way through building a data-driven app using CloudKit, and everything in between.
||Migrating Large-Scale Services to the Cloud|
This book reveals the technical challenges and successful implementation details of migrating MSN, Microsoft's consumer content portal - a business with 450 million worldwide users - into the Cloud. Following a technique long used in aviation, medicine, and other fields, MSN's Chief Technical Officer, Eric Passmore, describes the set of release, deployment, monitoring, and mitigation checklists used to build cloud services supporting hundreds of millions of users on Azure, Microsoft's Public Cloud.
An undertaking of this scale - involving services supported by a large team of engineers - involves unique challenges and risks. This book demonstrates through personal experience how to cut through the theory and provides checklists as a surprisingly simple antidote to the competing methodologies.

||Learning OpenStack Networking (Neutron), 2nd Edition|
OpenStack Neutron is an OpenStack component that provides networking as a service for other OpenStack services to architect networks and create virtual machines through its API. This API lets you define network connectivity in order to leverage network capabilities to cloud deployments.
Through this practical book, you will build a strong foundational knowledge of Neutron, and will architect and build an OpenStack cloud using advanced networking features.
We start with an introduction to OpenStack Neutron and its various components, including virtual switching, routing, FWaaS, VPNaaS, and LBaaS. You'll also get hands-on by installing OpenStack and Neutron and its components, and use agents and plugins to orchestrate network connectivity and build a virtual switching infrastructure.
Moving on, you'll get to grips with the HA routing capabilities utilizing VRRP and distributed virtual routers in Neutron. You'll also discover load balancing fundamentals, including the difference between nodes, pools, pool members, and virtual IPs. You'll discover the purpose of security groups and learn how to apply the security concept to your cloud/tenant/instance.
Finally, you'll configure virtual private networks that will allow you to avoid the use of SNAT and floating IPs when connecting to remote networks.
OpenStack is a free and open source cloud computing platform that is rapidly gaining popularity in Enterprise data centres. It is a scalable operating system and is used to build private and public clouds. It is imperative for all the aspiring cloud administrators to possess OpenStack skills if they want to succeed in the cloud-led IT infrastructure space.
This book will help you gain a clearer understanding of OpenStack's components and their interaction with each other to build a cloud environment. You will learn to deploy a self-service based cloud using just four virtual machines and standard networking.
You begin with an introduction on the basics of cloud computing. This is followed by a brief look into the need for authentication and authorization, the different aspects of dashboards, cloud computing fabric controllers, along with “Networking as a Service” and “Software Defined Networking.” Then, you will focus on installing, configuring, and troubleshooting different architectures such as Keystone, Horizon, Nova, Neutron, Cinder, Swift, and Glance.
