Linux Books: The Best and the Brightest - page 5
Putting It Down on Paper
Here's where I'm sure lots of people will disagree with me. As I said, there's a lot of room for subjectivity in grouping the books in this article. This particular section is aimed for people who work in a production IT and system administration setting, which of course includes small and home offices who have hefty computer requirements.
The first group of books includes references for all of those fun servers and services we all know and love. There's Apache Desktop Reference (0201604701), Apache: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition (1565925289), and Sendmail, 2nd Edition (1565922220), and DNS and BIND, 4th Edition (0596001584).
An interesting and varied selection also includes In Search of Clusters, 2nd Edition (0138997098), IP Telephony: Packet-Based Multimedia Communications Systems (0201619105), and SQL for Smarties (1558605762).
IT staff and administrators both would do well to look through all of the other sections. Any number of the books listed elsewhere in this article would be of use, depending on your own Linux and Unix knowledge levels. One book that I highly recommend is UNIX System Management Primer Plus for those in an enterprise environment. I'm biased, I was a technical editor for this one, but this is definitely one for people just starting out in the trenches.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
