The topic of high-availability in the HP environment is worth understanding in detail for anyone who deals with mission critical systems. Unfortunately, the details and effort behind an implementation and/or configuration of MC/Serviceguard is not addressed. This makes the book essentially a kindergarten level primer of generic solutions, something you could get out of Datamation or Informationweek at no charge. If you don't know anything about redundancy, duplicate I/O paths, UPS, clusters, this may be your book. Otherwise, if you want something you could really use look elsewhere.
Gives a Very basic overview of Clustering. Would be useful for somebody who has no clue about the world of clusters, Otherwise the cost is not worth it. If you are a techie, you can scour the net or look up some Magazine and get the same info without wasting any money. But, if you are a IT manager or Salesman, surely this book is worth decorating your shelf with ;-)
Gives an overview of general basic clustering principles, nothing real substantial. If your looking for the best basic understanding, spend a couple hours scouring the Net. (Time better spent!)
