Install and Manage the CUPS Server with New Book from Packt
Packt is pleased to announce a new book on the Commmon Unix Printing System that teaches to monitor and secure the CUPS server. Written by Ankur Shah, CUPS Administrative Guide will show users to manage printers through the command line and web interface.
The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) is a modular printing system for Unix-like computer operating systems that allows a computer to act as a print server. It consists of a print spooler and scheduler, filters to convert print jobs to the format required by each printer, and a backend system to send the data to the chosen printer from client applications. By providing a portable, modular printing layer, CUPS brings printing for UNIX into the modern age.
This book introduces system administrators to the unique and powerful features of CUPS, and then moves on to installing, compiling and managing the print network. System administrators will learn how to integrate their systems with other systems like LPDs and Mac, manage the ever increasing print job load, set up clients, and manage users.
CUPS Administrative Guide will teach administrators to customize the status of their printer system to accept and reject print jobs, set different print options, print multiple copies, configure manual and automatic print queues, and communicate with single and multiple servers with clients. Users will also learn the importance of cupsd.conf directives that will help them manage their network, server, browsing, and security options.
Linux/Unix System Administrators who want to know about the CUPS server and who are interested in designing and setting up a CUPS network will find this book useful. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/printing-with-cups-common-unix-printing-system/book

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
