Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a developer, you are aware of the increasing concern amongst developers and site architects that websites be able to handle the vast number of visitors that flood the Internet on a daily basis. Scalable Internet Architectures addresses these concerns by teaching you both good and bad design methodologies for building new sites and how to scale existing websites to robust, high-availability websites. Primarily example-based, the book discusses major topics in web architectural design, presenting existing solutions and how they work. Technology budget tight? This book will work for you, too, as it introduces new and innovative concepts to solving traditionally expensive problems without a large technology budget. Using open source and proprietary examples, you will be engaged in best practice design methodologies for building new sites, as well as appropriately scaling both growing and shrinking sites. Website development help has arrived in the form of Scalable Internet Architectures.

Book News Annotation:

Any organization with an Internet presence that is looking to grow over time needs to address the critical issue of scalability for their website or Internet applications. In this work, Schlossnagle (OmniTI Computer Consulting) provides advice on scalability in the realms of management and operations, addressing such questions as failure avoidance in mission-critical large systems, development practices meant to control agility and risk, monitoring technical and business-level metrics, and cost management. The second half of the work deals with more technical engineering issues, including high availability and load balancing, static caching, dynamic caching, database replication, and clustered logging.
