This will be a comprehensive and authoritative guide to understanding Microsoft's Windows NT cluster technology called Wolfpack. It will range from introductory material to advanced material that will be increasingly in demand by applications programmers working with this important server technology that appears destined to lead the pack where cluster technology is concerned. Cluster technology involves linking servers in such a way to provide users with the highest degree of availability possible to users. This involves three basic functions: fault tolerant computing; load balancing, and centralized administration and monitoring. Its basic aim is to provide high-speed computing that can withstand any failure in the overall system by a series of backup procedures that ensure zero downtime. This book will cover the entire range of topics from design, implementation and maintenance of the Wolfpack server technology.

Reviews for Introduction to Microsoft Windows NT Cluster Server: Programming and Administration

Israel displayed an excellent ear and fine false turn of phrase...Now, all these years later, she's written a slender, sordid and pretty damned fabulous book about her misadventures...There's no honor in anything she did, but after reading Can You Ever Forgive Me? it's hard to resist admitting Israel to the company of such sharp, gallant characters as Dawn Powell and Helene Hanff, women clinging to New York literary life, or its fringes, by their talented fingernails. -- Thomas Mallon, The New York Times Book Review
