From the Back Cover
As a developer, you are aware of the increasing concern amongst developers and site architects that websites be able to handle the vast number of visitors that flood the Internet on a daily basis. Scalable Internet Architecture addresses these concerns by teaching you both good and bad design methodologies for building new sites and how to scale existing websites to robust, high-availability websites. Primarily example-based, the book discusses major topics in web architectural design, presenting existing solutions and how they work. Technology budget tight? This book will work for you, too, as it introduces new and innovative concepts to solving traditionally expensive problems without a large technology budget. Using open source and proprietary examples, you will be engaged in best practice design methodologies for building new sites, as well as appropriately scaling both growing and shrinking sites. Website development help has arrived in the form of Scalable Internet Architecture.

It has really good examples all over it and it is meant for the Cloud Computing enthusiasts. Not only systems people, the guys in the Networking field can reap benefits from this as well. I was lucky to get a killer deal for this book under 20 bucks and I don't think I will be selling it ever!

That said, I read this book from cover to cover, it is a very - no - Extremely good book in terms of simple to follow and easy to read. The systems mentioned are current (not outdated) and the book covers all areas of scaled architecture.
I recommend this book, especially to anyone who has a rough idea or inkling of what a scaled architecture is, as this book will clarify 100% and fill any gaps.
I found this book an excellent technical read; delivered well considering the potential for ad nauseum of its subject matter.
Highly recommended for the competent web developer and those seeking to improve their awareness of scaling web technologies.
Badly in need of a second edition as the world has moved on since 2006.
