Despite claims from both the UNIX and Windows NT communities that their respective operating systems will be “taking over the world,” the reality is that enterprise data centers are increasingly multi-platform. The successful IT manager must be able to combine mainframes, proprietary minicomputers, UNIX and NT servers, and a variety of desktop clients to meet the needs of the various user departments while protecting the company's considerable investment in IT hardware, software, and personnel.
If you work in a multi-platform, enterprise-wide IT function, then this book is an indispensable resource. Beginning with basic concepts and teminology of networking, client/server systems, and object-oriented software development, the book then proceeds to provide a design and guidelines for the implementation of a multi-platform IT architecture. Particular emphasis is placed on adaptability to changing technologies and business needs, to ensure that your applications won't be obsolete before they're even deployed.
While focused on Hewlett-Packard's computing platforms—the HP 3000, HP= 9000, and NetServers—anyone needing to support multi-platform environments will find the approaches presented applicable. Administration of the multi-platform data center, including high availability and security considerations, is also discussed.
“The open systems software development approach presented is the best I have seen . . . We have used many of the practices shown in consulting engagements, and the high level of success has been fantastic.”—Barry Lemrow, Technical Consultant, HP Professional Services Organization
“An EXCELLENT book . . . Well-written by experts who know what they are talking about . . . One of the best in explaining many areas, [especially] the explanation of object-oriented programming in terms that any traditional-style programmer will find easy to understand.”—Eero Laurila, Networking R & D Lab, HP Commercial Systems Division
