Configure and Manage a Network Attached Storage Server using FreeNAS
Packt is pleased to announce Learning FreeNAS, a new book that helps users to understand the concepts of Network Attached Storage (NAS). Written by freelance Linux/FreeBSD consultant, Gary Sims, this book will show users how to transform their PC into a Network Attached Storage server, and configure and troubleshoot the FreeNAS Installation.
FreeNAS is free software that turns a PC into a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server. It has a web interface for administration and includes support for RAID (0, 1, 5), iSCSI, drive encryption, and UPnP. Based on FreeBSD, it has modest system requirements but is scalable for the enterprise.
This book will show readers how to use Storage Area Network technologies like iSCSI. Through this book, users will learn to administer a FreeNAS server in a variety of networking scenarios. Users will also learn how to plan and implement RAID to improve fault tolerance and drive performance on the server.
System administrators, for whom this book is useful, will learn to carry out advanced system configurations like encrypting discs, adding swap spaces and accessing SSH. The administrators will also learn to troubleshoot their FreeNAS server when faced with networking problems.
The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/learning-freenas/book
