When you've read The Linux Solution, you will understand how to:
Keith Edmunds is an award-winning entrepreneur who has worked in the IT industry since 1980. Initially working with hardware, he quickly moved to a consultancy role helping businesses make the most of their IT investment. He’s worked with companies such as Citibank, Unilever, Birds Eye Walls and Ericsson, as well as leading bioscience research companies, and has been using Linux since the early 1990s.
Have just finished reading and have to say this is a rare definitive guide around deploying and managing Linux-based servers and systems. It differs from other books on the topic in that the author clearly has not just great technical knowledge but also great real-life operational experience.
The book teaches what thinking you should bring to working with Linux as well as what technical understanding you should bring.
An essential read in the digital age where all of us interact with Linux-based systems online every day, even if we don't realise it.
This is a great read. All of the major IT platforms (Amazon, Google, etc) put their trust in Linux and yet no-one really knows what it is or how it works - let alone any of the key factors in building and scaling it.
Keith has produced an absolute gem in this book. His knowledge of Linux shines through - it is clear, concise, well thought out and methodical, leaving the reader educated and enlightened.
As a large business owner, this really opened my eyes to the subject and certainly made me question and challenge our own infrastructure. A great read - for the novice and the experienced. Highly recommended.
Despite its ubiquity, good quality reliable information and support on how to build, scale and maintain an IT infrastructure using Linux is unbelievably hard to find.
This book definitely solves that problem, and more. It’s packed with clear concise thinking and simple, robust, actionable, methodologies.
For me, its essential reading for anyone considering or already using / dependent upon an IT infrastructure using Linux.
And if you were not already using or considering Linux, then after reading this you might find yourself wondering why you are not!
