A practical guide to modeling and designing reliable networks

Provides a detailed introduction to modeling availability necessary for network design

Helps network designers understand the theoretical availability of their topologies

Explains the factors that limit availability to minimize the number of network failures

Provides all the information necessary to do basic availability modeling/budgeting

*High Availability Network
Fundamentals* discusses the need for and the mathematics of
availability, then moves on to cover the issues affecting
availability, including hardware, software, design strategies,
human error, and environmental considerations. After setting up the
range of common problems, it then delves into the details of how to
design networks for fault tolerance and provides sample
calculations for specific systems. Also included is a complete,
end-to-end example showing availability calculations for a sample
network.
