The TruCluster Server Handbook authoritatively details how to plan, design, install, configure, and administer a cluster of Tru64 UNIX systems. The book explains how to configure and optimize hardware underlying a TruCluster server, including storage servers so critical to running a high-end cluster operation. This book provides best practices and techniques drawn from the authors' extensive experiences in the field with systems designers, systems managers, developers, and users. The authors include a former Tru64 UNIX Technical Group Leader with HP's Consulting Division and a top industry figure, and two former TruCluster Server Team Leaders with the Customer Support Center.
