I loved this book, I skimmed a lot of sections, but in general it has great content on running cloud services.

Не так хорошо как "Web Operations". Ну и не так актуально, при современном засилье облаков.

I was expecting more from this book. It's a basic book although good for those who doesn't know anything about the topic. The Reading and Reference sections are pretty good though.

It's a Good introduction to capacity planning, but you'll find nothing new if you have already read Google SRE book or Performance: Enterprise and cloud by Brendan Gregg.

Quite interesting book. The author gives examples and problems that they had to solve while working on Flickr. I came to the conclusion that there was no exact answer how to plan capacity, because every application is specific.. but examples and reviews of what might get into your way was still helpful

I first read this in 2009 and realized on rereading that this book has had a tremendous influence in my career. I don't think the term "DevOps" shows up anywhere in this book, but if you want to start bootstrapping a new developer into that way of thinking, Allspaw shows instead of telling what it means to pay attention to the operational side of house.

The author says "a good deal of the information in this book will seem a lot like common sense", which I'd agree with. It all seems eminently reasonable, but you may not find many net-new things in reading it if you're experienced with basic systems administration and operations.

Good information about planning a large website's capacity needs based on pre-Yahoo Flickr's experiences.

Decent intro to capacity planning but I wish it would go deeper into the capacity planning process, challenges, patterns/anti-patterns etc. It's a bit too general.

Simple y al callo. Se lee mas como una serie de blogs semi independientes que como un libro. Punto de partida desde el cual se puede profundizar en varios temas segun el interes y la necesidad.
