I give 3 stars as the book saves some time of digging on the net and is good for offline introduction to Oracle's Cloud eg on the plane.
The layers of the Oracle cloud architecture are summarised in a diagram in the text. Much of this is generic to any cloud provider, like Amazon. But here there is a natural emphasis on the Oracle products. Mainly Solaris, Oracle's linux version and the Oracle database servers. Plus also a java service.
The entire book is basically a white paper (technical document) explaining Oracle's offering. Readers who might have already used Amazon Web Service will see much familiar. With a natural difference being that Amazon offers the free SQL databases, while Oracle gravitates towards support of its 11g version.
The book bills itself as a starting guide. So it is somewhat unfair to compare this against the full panoply of AWS, which is really the default giant in public clouds. This being said, I do hope there is more to Oracle Public Cloud than presented here. AWS has made great strides in also supporting a distributed geographic redundancy and in having a nice GUI for a new user, for example. The screen captures in the book only convey limited comparative ability.
Book has been divided in chapters very neatly as per the services offered by Oracle Public Cloud. Book also layout few of the best practices of Oracle Public Cloud for its various services.
The book part\, which I like most is chapter 2, which talks about transitioning from on premises to cloud.
As name suggest book provides very initial understanding of Oracle Cloud but nevertheless the book is good starting point.
Good book to lay foundation for developer as well as management to start understand Oracle Public Cloud.
