I am looking for a online atlas for Bacteriology, the cost does not matter. I have been searching SpringerLink, and Amazon but no good online version found.

What is a good atlas for Bacteriology as a online version?

Not sure what you are exactly looking for? If you change the question or comment I can update my answer...

NCBI's taxonomy site has a listing of bacteria. Encyclopedia of life is also great.

Then there's UCSC's microbial genome browser.

Biocyc is great reference for bacterial genes. to get into E coli, which is the model bacterium there's Port Eco featuring 130 E coli genomes.

Am Soc Micro has an excellent E coli/ Salmonella site based on their classic reference - you have to pay for access though.
