Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
John Allspaw is currently Operations Engineering Manager at Flickr, the popular photo site. He has had extensive experience working with growing web sites since 1999. These include online news magazines Salon.com, InfoWorld.com, Macworld.com and social networking sites that experienced extreme growth (Friendster and Flickr). During his time at Friendster, traffic increased 5X. He was responsible for their transition from a couple dozen servers in a failing data center to over 400 machines across two data centers, and the complete redesign of the backing infrastructure. When he joined Flickr, they had 10 servers in a tiny data center in Vancouver; they are now located in multiple data centers across the US. Prior to his web experience, Allspaw worked in modeling and simulation as a mechanical engineer doing car crash simulations for the NHTSA.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is unfamiliar with operations, just starting in an operations group, or integrates with operations.
For the experienced operations team member, this book will be of some use as a guide for particular focus areas for your group, but you may not learn anything new. It covers best practices and requirements for operation groups, such as monitoring and trending, post-mortems, backups, storage methods, and database strategies; but the most interesting chapters to me were the ones that focused on the interaction with the development groups. The chapters on Continuous Deployment, Dev and Ops Collaboration and Cooperation, and Agile Infrastructure were particularly poignant in that regard. I would recommend those chapters alone for any non-operation team to read to better understand operations and their focus, as well as operation team members to remind them of their responsibilities to the rest of the tech organization.
The reasons that I did not give this book 5 stars are that I felt it skipped a large part of organizing an operations team and covering process flows within them, such as change management, escalations, separation of responsibilities, ticketing systems, and how they impact daily operations. I also felt there was not enough specificity regarding many of the topics, especially regarding the integration of the topics. Something on the lines of "When we set up a new linux system, we . Then we set up a standard Nagios check to make sure and Cacti to . Then the system is automatically registered in our asset management system and our ticketing system..." I only write that because I would love to see an "Advanced Web Operations" book be written as a sequel to this one that could possibly cover some of those subjects.
If you're a technician, read this book and start working the practices. Graph some performance, spend time with the coders, think through how you might deal with double or triple your current traffic or server load. You will become the "go to" person when there are questions and your career will get a lot more fun!
At the (Project) Manager level? Buy copies for everyone on your team and start enabling them. Focus on one or two avenues and break down the barriers to effective efficiency. Demonstrate the advantages to your senior managment so they green light bigger, more challenging tasks. Find those one or two folks whose minds are open to the possibilities and give them a copy of Making Things Happen: Mastering Project Management (Theory in Practice (O'Reilly)). Expect others to look to you for advice.
This isn't a "Try this code" sort of book! There's a bit of challenge if you go to work, ask about metrics, and get blank stares. Challenge...opportunity...options. Read the book, find what really excites you, and go make things better.
Going into this purchase I was not expecting a very technical read but did want a deeper understanding of the full flow (from front-end to rear and back) of web design architecture with an eye toward scaling. Sadly, only a 3rd of this book felt useful for me (and I'd say for any one person or handful of people working on the next great site). Even worse, most of it was at the beginning and end of the book. So little at the end that it even felt rushed or added-on last minute despite being oriented toward "newer" web development types that are not tied to traditional RDBMS. It's that last point where half of the book seems to spend it's time, giving it a "legacy code" feel.
Not wanting to kick this review while it's down... but doing it anyway, the language of the book reads as management level for large groups, or really, how to bring diverse groups together.
