Cloud of Things: Foundations, Applications, and Challenges

Jitendra Kumar

Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct active management by the user. This book explores algorithms, protocols, and system design principles of key smart technologies including cloud computing and the internet of things.

- Discusses the system design principles in cloud computing along with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics applications

- Presents blockchain-based solutions, cyber-physical system applications, and deep learning approaches to solving practical problems

- Highlights important concepts including the cloud of things architecture, cloud service management and virtualization, and resource management techniques

- Covers advanced technologies including fog computing, edge computing, and distributed intelligence

- Explores cloud-enabling technology, broadband networks and internet architecture, internet service providers (ISPs), and connectionless packet switching.

The text is primarily written for graduate students, academic researchers, and professionals in the field of computer science and engineering, electrical engineering, and information technology.
