A comprehensive guide to installing, configuring, and maintaining Linux systems in the modern data center. Available from Packt Publishing!
In a new book from Packt Publishing, which I co-wrote with Alex Calcatinge, we take a fresh look at Linux administration from the perspective of recent transformations in the modern data center, with workloads spanning from on-premises to public cloud infrastructures. To quote from the book's introductory notes:
There's an evolutionary twist to the making of a modern-day Linux administrator. Tedious manual administrative operations are gradually replaced by orchestrated and automated workflows. One-off magic commands and scripts are replaced by declarative manifests invoked on-demand while scaling up or down system configurations based on computing needs. Yesterday's Linux administrator progressively morphs into a DevOps persona.
Mastering Linux Administration is written with the Admin turned DevOps in mind.
