Designing Risk in IT Infrastructure #

Another must-have book for system administrators and architects has been published!

  • By Daemon Behr
  • Paperback: 416 pages
  • Publisher: Daemon Behr (August 10, 2018)
  • Language: English

This book wil help you understand what risk really is, a variety of different risk factors and how to mitigate them.

Do you know what risks exist for a given solution, and why?

Do you factor in, and calculate risk when designing the architecture? If so, how do you do it?

Risk analysis, do we need it?

Daemon does a great job explaining all of this, and risk analysis is an often underappreciated exercise that we leave to late in the design process:

Besides having a wealth of information, perhaps sometimes to much to ingest in a single sitting, it’s also packed with great (and funny) examples, quotes and historical factoids. This is a book you’ll have to read more than once, and use as a reference later on.

This is the third book in the IT Architect Series, after Foundation In the Art of Infrastructure Design: A Practical Guide for IT Architects and The Journey: A Guidebook for Anyone Interested in IT Architecture

Note: My recommendation of the book is based on the chapters I’ve reviewed, and not the final printed product.
