LINUX CLEARLY EXPLAINED: PFAFFENBER
Linux Networking Clearly Explained: Bryan Pfaffenberger, Michael Jang
All you need to know about Storage Area Networks The amount of data of an average company doubles every year. Thus, companies who own 1TB of data today will own 32TB in five years. Storage networks help to tame such data quantities and to manage this data growth efficiently. Since stored data and information are the biggest asset of any company, anyone who is involved in the planning or the operation of IT systems requires a basic knowledge of the principle and the use of storage networks. Storage Networks Explained covers the fundaments, techniques and functions of storage networks such as disk subsystems, Fibre Channel SAN, Internet SCSI (iSCSI), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Network Attached Storage (NAS), file systems, and storage virtualization. Furthermore the authors describe the use of these techniques and how they are designed to achieve high-availability, flexibility, and scalability of data and applications. Additional attention is given to network backup and the management of storage networks. Written by leading experts in the field, this book on storage area networks is updated and fully revised. Key features: * Presents the basic concepts of storage networks, such as I/O techniques, disk subsystems, virtualization, NAS and SAN file systems * Covers the design of storage networks which provide flexible, highly-available, and scaleable IT systems * Explains the use of storage networks for data sharing, data protection, and digital archiving * Discusses management of storage networks using SNMP, SMI-S, and IEEE 1244 This book provides system administrators and system architects, as well as students and decision makers, with the tools needed for optimal selection and cost-effective use of storage networks. The Linux Journal awarded the first edition with the ´´Editor´s Choice Award 2005´´ in the category ´´System Administration Book.´´

If you want to learn how to use Linux, but don´t know where to start, listen on. Knowing where to start when learning a new skill can be a challenge, especially when the topic seems so vast. There can be so much information available that you can´t even decide where to start. Or worse, you start down the path of learning and quickly 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. Linux for Beginners doesn´t make any assumptions about your background or knowledge of Linux. You need no prior knowledge to benefit from this audiobook. You will be guided step by step using a logical and systematic approach. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered, they are explained in plain language, making it easy for anyone to understand. Here is what you will learn by listening to Linux for Beginners: How to get access to a Linux server if you don´t already What a Linux distribution is and which one to choose What software is needed to connect to Linux from Mac and Windows computers What SSH is and how to use it, including creating and using SSH keys The file system layout of Linux systems and where to find programs, configurations, and documentation The basic Linux commands you´ll use most often Creating, renaming, moving, and deleting directories Listing, reading, creating, editing, copying, and deleting files Exactly how permissions work and how to decipher the most cryptic Linux permissions with ease How to use the nano, vi, and emacs editors Two methods to search for files and directories What you learn in Linux for Beginners applies to any Linux environment including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, and more. 1.

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. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered, they are explained in plain language, making it easy to understand. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian E. Smith.

This is a book for computationalists, whether working programmers or anyone interested in methods of computation and algorithms. Where necessary, the underlying ideas are explained and the algorithms are formally presented. The C++ programming language is used for low-level algorithms, and there is only a minimal set of features beyond plain C. For material, where technicalities in the C++ code would obscure the underlying ideas, the author presents either pseudo-code or, with arithmetical algorithms, the GP language. Appendix C includes an introduction to GP. Example computations are mostly given with algorithms, some of them made with programs the author refers to. Various optimization techniques are described and the actual performance of many given implementations is indicated. The accompanying software, the FXT and the hfloat libraries, are written for POSIX-compliant platforms such as the Linux and BSD operating systems.
Get up to date quickly on the new changes coming with C++17 Professional C++ is the advanced manual for C++ programming. Designed to help experienced developers get more out of the latest release, this book skims over the basics and dives right in to exploiting the full capabilities of C++17. Each feature is explained by example, each including actual code snippets that you can plug into your own applications. Case studies include extensive, working code that has been tested on Windows and Linux, and the author´s expert tips, tricks, and workarounds can dramatically enhance your workflow. Even many experienced developers have never fully explored the boundaries of the language´s capabilities; this book reveals the advanced features you never knew about, and drills down to show you how to turn these features into real-world solutions. The C++17 release includes changes that impact the way you work with C++; this new fourth edition covers them all, including nested namespaces, structured bindings, string_view, template argument deduction for constructors, parallel algorithms, generalized sum algorithms, Boyer-Moore string searching, string conversion primitives, a filesystem API, clamping values, optional values, the variant type, the any type, and more. Clear explanations and professional-level depth make this book an invaluable resource for any professional needing to get up to date quickly. Maximize C++ capabilities with effective design solutions Master little-known elements and learn what to avoid Adopt new workarounds and testing/debugging best practices Utilize real-world program segments in your own applications C++ is notoriously complex, and whether you use it for gaming or business, maximizing its functionality means keeping up to date with the latest changes. Whether these changes enhance your work or make it harder depends on how well-versed you are in the newest C++ features. Professional C++ gets you up to date quickly, and provides the answers you need for everyday solutions.
