The Bible bridges the gap between IT and Dev Ops, because it attempts to explain computer science and software engineering trade-offs in very simple terms.
We hope that in the coming 3-5 years, IT will speak a language that helps them get closer to the Dev Ops' web-scale jargon.
The concepts of distributed systems and software-led infrastructure are critical for IT practitioners to understand.
I encourage both Nutanix customers and everyone who wants to understand these trends to read the book.
Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to Steven Poitras and Nutanix with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. There is a Merriam Webster meaning of the word "bible" that is not literally about scriptures: "a publication that is preeminent especially in authoritativeness or wide readership". It started being written by one of the most humble yet knowledgeable employees at Nutanix, Steven Poitras, our first Solution Architect who continues to be authoritative on the subject without wielding his "early employee" primogeniture.
There is no limit of new opportunities for IT to change to a "new and better way", but the adoption of new technology and more importantly, the change of operations and processes is difficult.Steve has taken time to tell the web-scale story, without taking shortcuts.Democratizing our distributed architecture was not going to be easy in a world where most IT practitioners have been buried in dealing with the "urgent".Even the huge growth of open source technologies has been hampered by lack of adequate documentation.
Wikibon was founded on the principal that the community can help with this problem and in that spirit, The Nutanix Bible, which started as a blog post by Steve Poitras, has become a valuable reference point for IT practitioners that want to learn about hypercovergence and web-scale principles or to dig deep into Nutanix and hypervisor architectures.Centralized storage replaced both the mainframe and the stand-alone server with sharable, larger pools of storage that also provided data protection.
