Proud to announce that Architecting EUC Solutions book is now available

Posted by on April 13, 2016 in Featured | 0 comments

It’s been a long journey over the past year, but I’m proud to announce that the Architecting EUC Solutions book is finally available. The book focuses on helping you develop your design for modern EUC solutions. It touches briefly on the strategy and roadmap phases of these projects also. The chapters are created so that each one covers a different topic and they range from all of the EUC solutions, operations, infrastructure and all parts required for a design.

The content in the book is very vendor neutral and is not a blueprint on how to write a VMware Horizon or Citrix XenDesktop design. Instead, it takes an approach of educating architects on what questions to ask and how to evaluate alternatives. Then apply these to the solution of your choice.

I would like to thank Sean Massey for helping by contributing some content for the book and Kees Baggerman for stepping up as a technical reviewer for the book. I hope that if you read the book, that you enjoy it and it’s able to help you on your design journey. If you are not into EUC but are looking for design related content, you may still find some helpful chapters as there are not that many books on IT architecture.

For those that are interested the book can be purchased starting today on Amazon for $32 and is also available in a Kindle version. If you buy the paperback version you can get the Kindle version for $2.99 additional. I look forward to hearing from those that read the book and some reviews on Amazon. Below is the description taken from the official listing.

Note: If anything looks weird in the listing give it a day or let me know. Amazon can take up to a couple of days to get all the data and links in for new books.

Written for architect, business leaders and engineers who plan, design and deploy end user computing (EUC) solutions. This first of it’s kind EUC book will help you make the right design decisions. To design an EUC solution for performance, reliability, scalability and ROI that your business needs, you must understand all the factors that affect the outcome.

Should you build solutions on-premises or purchase cloud services? How to evaluate and design storage to meet performance demands? Filled with examples, guidance on tools and concepts, and coverage of topics such as networking, security, infrastructure, and more. Inside, you’ll explore:

– Creating your EUC strategy and roadmap
