This book is a resource for network architects who must create solutions for emerging network environments in enterprise data centers. You'll find information on how to leverage Sun(TM) Open Network Environment (Sun ONE) technologies to create Services on Demand solutions, as well as technical details about the networking internals. The information presented here is based on actual network engineering experience that includes network product development and real-world customer experiences. The focus of this book is limited to the design of network architectures that support Web services-based, multi-tier architectures. However, it covers everything from the edge data center switch to the server network protocol stacks.
