Rezension bezieht sich auf: Backup & Recovery: Inexpensive Backup Solutions for Open Systems (Taschenbuch)
This is an excellently written, complete and thorough guide to backup strategies for various platforms and databases, having ease of recovery in mind. It teaches the reader why to backup, what to backup and how to backup and presents practical, affordable solutions, including even bare-metal recovery methods.
The author writes with a distinctive style matching clear, concise and easy to understand technical content with a humorous conversational tone. He tells anecdotes and horror stories to illustrate the importance of the subject and the pitfalls to avoid. The various tools and concepts are excellently explained. Numerous options are presented and lots of examples are given. In addition to providing a vast amount of valuable information, the book is a pleasure to read.
It is aimed at professional systems and/or database administrators, although especially its first part is written in terms also novices can understand and contains useful information for any computer user. Since the author always has costs in mind and presents many tools that are already comprised by the operating systems or freely available, also ambitious home or small office users will find valuable information and practical solutions. But when it comes to following the author's suggestions the reader should be comfortable with using command line tools and the shell.
With his website [...] the author intends to keep his book up to date by providing information on things that may change. Further he wants to build a community around backup and recovery issues. For this purpose he provides, in addition to his blog, forums, mailing lists and a wiki. This seems like a great idea that adds further value to this excellent book.
