I’ve worked with many infrastructure teams who’ve adopted virtualization, cloud, and automated configuration tools, but struggle to keep everything patched, consistent, and generally as well managed as they’d like. I’ve also worked with many teams who’ve found very effective ways to work with these technologies, and met and spoke with many others besides. I’ve decided to share what I’ve learned from these teams in book form, and O’Reilly publishing have agreed to publish it!
We should have an early release available in the next few weeks, with a draft of the first three chapters of the book. We’ll then put out updates and new chapters as I go. Hopefully I’ll get good feedback so the end product will be a more useful resource than it would be if I banged the whole thing out in a dark corner.
Here are a few links:
- Product page on the O’Reilly shop.
- A mailing list for announcements about the book.
- Website for the book.
