If you're an experienced system administrator looking to acquire Linux
skills, or a seasoned Linux
user facing a new challenge, Linux
offers practical knowledge for managing a complete range of Linux
systems and servers. The book summarizes the steps you need to build everything from standalone SOHO hubs, web servers, and LAN servers to load-balanced clusters and servers consolidated through virtualization. Along the way, you'll learn about all of the tools you need to set up and maintain these working environments.
Linux is now a standard corporate platform with users numbering in the hundreds of millions, and there is a definite shortage of talented administrators. Linux
is ideal as an introduction to Linux
for Unix veterans, MCSEs, and mainframe administrators, and as an advanced (and refresher) guide for existing Linux
administrators who will want to jump into the middle of the book.
