Internet Infrastructure: Networking, Web Services, and Cloud Computing (PDF) provides a comprehensive introduction to networks and the Internet from several perspectives: the underlying media, the hardware, the protocols, the servers, and their uses. The material in the textbook is divided into concept chapters that are followed up with case study chapters that examine how to configure, install, and secure a server that offers the given service discussed.

The ebook covers in detail the Apache web server, Bind DNS name server, and the Squid proxy server. It also provides background on those servers by discussing DHCP, DNS, HTTPS, HTTP, digital certificates and encryption, web caches, and the variety of protocols that support web caching.

Introductory networking content, as well as advanced Internet content, is also included in chapters on networks, TCP/IP, TCP/IP tools, LANs and WANs, cloud computing, and an examination of the Amazon Cloud Service.

Online resources include supplementary content that is available via the textbook’s companion website, as well useful resources for faculty and students alike, including: a complete lab manual; power point notes, for installing, configuring, securing and experimenting with many of the servers discussed in the textbook; power point notes; animation tutorials to illustrate some of the concepts; 2 appendices; and complete input/output listings for the example Amazon cloud operations covered in the ebook.
