Release It!: Design and Deploy Production-Ready Software 2nd Edition, Kindle Edition
A single dramatic software failure can cost a company millions of dollars - but can be avoided with simple changes to design and architecture. This new edition of the best-selling industry standard shows you how to create systems that run longer, with fewer failures, and recover better when bad things happen. New coverage includes DevOps, microservices, and cloud-native architecture. Stability antipatterns have grown to include systemic problems in large-scale systems. This is a must-have pragmatic guide to engineering for production systems.
If you're a software developer, and you don't want to get alerts every night for the rest of your life, help is here. With a combination of case studies about huge losses - lost revenue, lost reputation, lost time, lost opportunity - and practical, down-to-earth advice that was all gained through painful experience, this book helps you avoid the pitfalls that cost companies millions of dollars in downtime and reputation. Eighty percent of project life-cycle cost is in production, yet few books address this topic.
This updated edition deals with the production of today's systems - larger, more complex, and heavily virtualized - and includes information on chaos engineering, the discipline of applying randomness and deliberate stress to reveal systematic problems. Build systems that survive the real world, avoid downtime, implement zero-downtime upgrades and continuous delivery, and make cloud-native applications resilient. Examine ways to architect, design, and build software - particularly distributed systems - that stands up to the typhoon winds of a flash mob, a Slashdotting, or a link on Reddit. Take a hard look at software that failed the test and find ways to make sure your software survives.

From the Preface
In this book, you will examine ways to architect, design, and build software —particularly distributed systems—for the muck and mire of the real world. You will prepare for the armies of illogical users who do crazy, unpredictable things. Your software will be under attack from the moment you release it. It needs to stand up to the typhoon winds of flash mobs or the crushing pressure of a DDoS attack by poorly secured IoT toaster ovens. You’ll take a hard look at software that failed the test and find ways to make sure your software survives contact with the real world.
Who Should Read This Book
I’ve targeted this book to architects, designers, and developers of distributed software systems, including websites, web services, and EAI projects, among others. These must be available or the company loses money. Maybe they’re commerce systems that generate revenue directly through sales or critical internal systems that employees use to do their jobs. If anybody has to go home for the day because your software stops working, then this book is for you.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Still the insight of the author is nice but I would probably recommend it to someone working in backend mostly.
An absolute master class in software engineering.

The writing is amazing - the author knows how to capture the attention of the reader, and more importantly, knows how to raise an engineer to a level of professionalism required in the field through the various horrible engineering stories that could've been avoided by being careful about development.
Great book that made me be more self-aware of the importance of little things - little things that can crash a whole distributed system.
Prolly a must-read in the literature.
Es un libro de 2017. Hoy en día se usan tecnologías distintas, los que lo compren para estar al día que lo tengan en cuenta.
