This page lists the various writing, presentations and interviews that I have done over the years.
OpenStack was created with the audacious goal of being the ubiquitous software choice for building public and private cloud infrastructures. In just over a year, it's become the most talked-about project in open source. This concise book introduces OpenStack's general design and primary software components in detail, and shows you how to start using it to build cloud infrastructures.
This book presents the case and methodology for optimizing your computing infrastructure through proven consolidation techniques. It steps you through the consolidation process from the initial business justification, through project planning, architecture, deployment, and management.
This book presents an established methodology for transitioning the people, processes, and technologies in IT environments to the Solaris™ Operating System. It steps you through the various phases of the migration process, using detailed case studies to illustrate the benefits, costs, and requirements associated with a migration project.
