Purpose

I wrote the Terracotta Virtualization Server Product Guide to describe the Terracotta Virtualization Server (TVS)—a suite of server tools and services that increases the stability and fault tolerance of Java applications—and provide installation and configuration procedures to developers and system administrators.

Comments

This document is a start-up document. It’s for a rev. 1.1 product for which there was no existing user documentation, and as such it does have a bit of the “everything but the kitchen sink” feel to it. But it was deliberate decision to provide everything in one guide. As well, it’s the first version of a Word template that is evolving to this day, and subtle visual design and layout changes over time have improved readability considerably.

However, it remains an excellent example of clear topic organization, task breakdown, and provides many nice-to-have features such as running footers, glossary, and an index. (And it earned Write Quick its first STC Touchstone Competition Award.)
