I received my co-author’s copies of Upgrading and Repairing Servers a few days ago. For those of you who read Upgrading and Repairing PCs, the multi-million copy bestseller from Scott Mueller or have visited Scott’s home on the web, www.upgradingandrepairingpcs.com, you’ve been reading about an upcoming servers book for about three years now. I’m pleased to say it’s now a reality.
If you’ve been frustrated by a lack of information about how to build, configure or maintain a server; how to select the right form factor and processor(s); how to select the best server architecture for a particular task; or how to create the infrastructure needed for a successful server deployment (server rooms, backup, power protection, rack mounts, and so forth), Upgrading and Repairing Servers is the book you’ve been looking for.
Upgrading and Repairing Servers follows the same full-bore, hard-core, chock-full-of-stuff-you-need-to-know-and-more style of Upgrading and Repairing PCs, but with server-specific information at its core. Here are just a few examples of the questions Upgrading and Repairing Servers answers:
What makes registered memory different than ordinary memory?
Why build a server using one of the SSI form factors instead of ATX or BTX?
How do rack-mounted slimline servers stay cool?
What chipsets support AMD and Intel’s dual-core server processor lines?
Which tape backup technologies are large enough for today’s huge SATA and SAS hard disks?
Which vendors are the leaders in providing server-specific motherboards, chassis, and other hardware?
If you’d like an autographed copy signed by yours truly, I have some copies available for just $43.00 (includes shipping) each. Email me for more information and payment options.
