My name is Alex Williams and my personal website is I have been working in the IT industry (specifically in web hosting) for over 18 years, handling infrastructures with up to 20,000 servers. I have experienced my fair share of successes, failures, disasters, problems and unimaginable situations within the confines of a datacenter, NOC and customer support desk. This eBook has been compiled with the help of many skilled and experienced system/network administrators.

Feel free to contact me with questions or comments, but please keep any flames to yourself.
