Linux Enterprise Cluster: How Karl Kopper Built a Reliable and Cost-Effective Business System Using Free Software

Karl Kopper's book, The Linux Enterprise Cluster, describes how he put several inexpensive computers on a network and made them operate as one big server called a cluster, saving his company time, money and resources. The book goes through every step needed to build an enterprise-class cluster of Linux computers capable of supporting an entire enterprise reliably and cost-effectively. Kopper's book is aimed at system administrators who use Linux, those interested in Linux but short on experience, students new to the information processing field, and anyone considering deploying Linux in an environment where low-cost computer reliability is important. The book also describes high-availability techniques that can be used with or without a cluster.
