Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

While a direct-attached solution such as a tape drive works well with an individual server or a limited number of servers, large amounts of data becomes harder to manage across a multiple server network environment. Storage for each server must be managed apart from the others and cannot be shared across the network. Performance and scalability are often limited, and storage resources cannot be efficiently allocated. The data management needs of today's businesses are typically much better served by a networked attached storage approach. Network-attached storage gives businesses the ability to share and manage large amounts of data over the Internet or a corporate Intranet. NAS systems are optimized for file storage and data protection and offer sophisticated data management capabilities which in turn help companies reduce costs, improve data availability, and simplify operations.
