This book is open access under a CC BY NC ND license.

It addresses the most recent developments in cloud computing such as HPC in the Cloud, heterogeneous cloud, self-organising and self-management, and discusses the business implications of cloud computing adoption.

Establishing the need for a new architecture for cloud computing, it discusses a novel cloud management and delivery architecture based on the principles of self-organisation and self-management.

This focus shifts the deployment and optimisation effort from the consumer to the software stack running on the cloud infrastructure.

It also outlines validation challenges and introduces a novel generalised extensible simulation framework to illustrate the effectiveness, performance and scalability of self-organising and self-managing delivery models on hyperscale cloud infrastructures.

It concludes with a number of potential use cases for self-organising, self-managing clouds and the impact on those businesses.
