LXer: Backup & Recovery

Published at LXer:

The previous incarnation of this book (seven years old, now) was a heavy hitter in the Linux and UNIX communities. While that's not a bad thing, it doesn't do much for you if you administer a heterogeneous server and desktop environment (tell me you don't have any Windows computers at all where you work). Preston threw a much wider net this time, covering not only UNIX/Linux and Windows but Mac OS X, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, and even VMware. Most backup and recovery books on the market target specific OS and hardware platforms. That would seem to make sense on the surface and would make the book easier to write. This book however, proposes to be the "one-stop-shopping" text for just about everyone's needs. Preston's first book on the subject was a smash. Let's see if lightning strikes twice in the same place.
