Linux.com: Even if your business is not an "enterprise," The Linux Enterprise Cluster is an excellent resource for building a low-cost computing platform for a variety of services and purposes. Maybe you need a lot of computing power for complex calculations or for video rendering. Maybe you need a highly available server for a variety of Internet- or intranet-related services. No matter what your needs are, The Linux Enterprise Cluster can help any Unix, BSD, or GNU/Linux sysadmin create a single, unified computing platform out of a pile of commodity computer hardware.
The Linux Enterprise Cluster is for anyone interested in combining regular desktop, workstation, or server computers together into one computing platform. You have to have a basic understanding of the GNU/Linux operating system and a good understanding of the kind of services you want to run and how to configure them. The book will not tell you how to set up a Web server, but it will tell you how to set up a group of computers to support Web services. So think of this book as a guide to hardware consolidation through software, not as a sysadmin's handbook for running network services.
