Q

Where can I find published material covering high-availability and redundant networks?

Where can I find published material covering high-availability and redundant networks? Specifically, I would like to see case studies or specific texts that discuss the design of a network that uses multiple paths instead of primary/cold backup solutions. I would guess that it would include MPLS, load-balancing, routing protocol metric and cost manipulation, summarization and supernetting, convergence, etc.
There are a couple of sites that are dedicated to data centers where you can find some of this information. They are www.uptimeinstitute.com and www.afcom.com. Both of these are good resources. Also, check with the major vendors on their websites for white papers and case studies using their equipment.

Here is a link to some searches on Barnes and Noble that have some good info. Also, you may want to join the ACM

(Association for Computing Machinery). This is one of the best organizations that I have found providing lots of free classes, etc.
