Well the first part of the second edition has been published and I've started working on the second half. So begins another long series of sleep-deprived nights.
This second volume gets into more advanced technology such as building a continuous availability fabric to create mainframe-like reliability with open systems components, performance tuning and other intersting topics.
At this stage of the game, I'm not going to post a lot of information such as a complete Table of Contents. What I will do though is keep you posted on where I am in the writing process.
If you have any comments, please send them to me.
