At first glance one would think that this text was an extended introduction to the concepts of clusters as well as considerable discussion about interesting limits in latency and communcation speeds in inter-cluster connections. It completely lacks any real "essentials" that would aid the reader in the creation of a cluster, the administration or even something as "essential" as the cluster storage that is needed. This book may look like it provides the essential but it simply fails utterly in this respect. Does it provide information? Yes. If you would like to read about some of the things that were done at Sun Labs to make this happen and perhaps have long reads about the various ways that you *could* create a cluster then fine. However, don't buy this book thinking that there are any essentials. There are not. It does not even talk about simple things like the patches you need for Sun Cluster 3.2 on your Solaris 10 10/09 install.

Oracle Solaris Cluster Essentials provides keys for any IT organization interested in building clustering platforms using Oracle Solaris Cluster. Both oracle Cluster 3.2 and Solaris Cluster Geographic are explored in detail, written by an expert and covering both disaster recovery features and requirements for designing a cluster system. The result is a complete introduction and hands-on guide that's a 'must' for collections catering to IT managers and programmers alike.

Like every book from this series I can read all details regards clustering in solaris. You can open this book having configuration problems and find out proper solution.
