Best Current Operational Practices
Documented best practices for Engineers by Engineers.
The Best Current Operational Practice (BCOP) project is collecting the best practices known within the operations community and capturing those practices in a series of documents. These “living documents” are peer reviewed by technology experts who actually deploy and manage these environments. We believe the best documentation is when it is based on real-world implementations.
This is a community project and is open to all to participate and get involved. We welcome your participation and look forward to working together to build better documentation for the entire community.
To learn more about what we're doing here and how, including our purpose, philosophy, scope, principles, criteria, and process, read the NANOG-BCOP-DP.
