I'm a Java developer with a few years of experience. I'm now in a small startup and I'm going to have to take over devops/sysadmin responsibilities. Our platform is not very complex, and I already have some basic knowledge, but I need to go through all principles to get a better general view. I'm looking for a book that covers the basics and relationships between Apache server, Tomcat, virtual hosts, public certificates, server administration, security (SSL, certificates), continuous integration with different environments, jenkins automation. Nice to have: load balancing with apache server and tomcat instances.

Hi Aitor Sanchez,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

I think it will probably be very hard to find a book which meets all these criteria as these are all very specific tools. In 2015 we had a book promotion of this DevOps book. Might be worth considering. If you search this forum for "DevOps" you'll find a bunch of questions and answers about the book from the authors, so you can decide yourself if the book might be useful for you or not.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

The book by Gruver and Mouser, Leading the Transformation: Applying Agile and DevOps Principles at Scale, and The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim are probably your best bets if you're truly looking to understand the principles behind DevOps.

Otherwise, if you're really more interested in the technologies you listed out, then a search on DevOps Continuous Delivery combined with the specific technology you're interested in will probably help you find some good references.
