Cloud computing is currently undergoing a great deal of discussion. However, despite considerable efforts and investments in the industry of cloud computing, critical problems have yet to be solved and the research and development community involved in distributed computing is searching for viable solutions. This book intends to present a snapshot of the on-going activities in research and development undertaken at the European level through collaborative work of multi-national teams in the frame of the FP7 programme of European Commission. The material is split in four parts. Two are oriented towards the potential clients of cloud computing: on one side the service offer towards the potential clients of cloud computing, on another the methods of adopting the cloud computing paradigm. The other two parts address the cloud computing providers’ problems: one deals with the cloud management while the second with the automation efforts. The idea to group in a book the contributions of different European projects dealing with cloud computing problems has emerged on the occasion of organising the second Workshop on Software Services: cloud computing and Applications based on Software Services (2nd WoSS, June 6–9, 2011, in Timisoara, Romania, http://sprers.eu/events/2nd-woss). In a period which is confused about what cloud computing can and cannot achieve, we hope that the content of the book will transform those clouds in the reader’s sky into white, fluffy and friendly ones. We warmly recommend this book to the students, researchers and developers working in the field of distributed computing
