The first barrier that a new Linux user has to face is the overwhelming number of flavors that this operating system has. These flavors are commonly known as distros (from distribution), and to date there are more than three hundred active distros to choose from. So, how to choose one? You can choose the most popular at the moment, or take heed of what your friend says, but are you sure that this is the one that you need? Making the wrong decision on this matter is behind a good number of disappointments with this operating system. You need to choose the distro that is right for you and your needs. Introducing Linux Distros teaches you the pros and the cons of the most frequently used distros in order to find the one that is right for you. You will explore each distro step by step, so that you dont have to endure hours of web surfing, countless downloads, becoming confused by new concepts and, in the worst cases, reading complex and marathon installation guides. You will benefit from the authors long-term experience working with each distro hands on, enabling you to choose the best distro for your long-term needs. Linux offers us a wonderful open source alternative to proprietary software, and using Introducing Linux Distros you can decide how to best make it work for you.

Pro Linux High Availability Clustering teaches you how to implement this fundamental Linux add-on into your business. Linux High Availability Clustering is needed to ensure the availability of mission critical resources. The technique is applied more and more in corporate datacenters around the world. While lots of documentation about the subject is available on the internet, it isnt always easy to build a real solution based on that scattered information, which is often oriented towards specific tasks only. Pro Linux High Availability Clustering explains essential high-availability clustering components on all Linux platforms, giving you the insight to build solutions for any specific case needed. In this book four common cases will be explained: Configuring Apache for high availability Creating an Open Source SAN based on DRBD, iSCSI and HA clustering Setting up a load-balanced web server cluster with a back-end, highly-available database Setting up a KVM virtualization platform with high-availability protection for a virtual machine. With the knowledge youll gain from these real-world applications, youll be able to efficiently apply Linux HA to your work situation with confidence. Author Sander Van Vugt teaches Linux high-availability clustering on training courses, uses it in his everyday work, and now brings this knowledge to you in one place, with clear examples and cases. Make the best start with HA clustering with Pro Linux High Availability Clustering at your side. Sander van Vugt is an independent trainer and consultant, living in the Netherlands and working throughout the European Union.

In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order. It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn´t kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks. The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does. This edition of the book covers Version 2.6, which has seen significant changes to nearly every kernel subsystem, particularly in the areas of memory management and block devices. The book focuses on the following topics:* Memory management, including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA)* The Virtual Filesystem layer and the Second and Third Extended Filesystems* Process creation and scheduling* Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers* Timing* Synchronization within the kernel* Interprocess Communication (IPC)* Program executionUnderstanding the Linux Kernel will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but it´s more than just an academic exercise. You´ll learn what conditions bring out Linux´s best performance, and you´ll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. This book will help you make the most of your Linux system.

If you want to learn how to use Linux and level up your career but are pressed for time, listen on. As the founder of the Linux Training Academy and an instructor of several courses, I´ve had the good fortune of helping thousands of people hone their Linux skills. Interacting with so many people who are just getting started with the Linux operating system has given me invaluable insight into the particular struggles and challenges people face at this stage. One of the biggest challenges for people interested in learning the ins and outs of Linux is simply a lack of time. When you are working with a limited and extremely valuable resource, you want to make sure you make the most of it. The next biggest challenge for Linux newcomers is knowing where to start. There is so much information available that deciding what to focus your attention on first is a big enough hurdle to keep many people from even starting. What´s worse is starting down the path of learning only to discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren´t explained. This kind of experience is frustrating and leaves you with more questions than answers. That´s why I´ve written this book. Not only have I condensed the most important material into five sections, each designed to be consumed in a day, but I´ve also structured the content in a logical and systematic manner. This way you´ll be sure to make the most out of your time by learning the foundational aspects of Linux first and then building upon that foundation each day. In Learn Linux in 5 Days, you will learn the most important concepts and commands and be guided step by step through several practical and real-world examples.
