VERITAS Software Corp. today announced the release of "Disk Storage Management for Windows Servers," a guide to help administrators implement and configure online storage in Microsoft Windows(R) workgroup and enterprise environments.
The guide, written by Paul Massiglia, engineering technical director at VERITAS Software, provides the architectural background that helps users formulate online storage strategies, and explains to readers how VERITAS Software's volume management technologies apply these principles in Windows environments.
"Disk Storage Management for Windows Servers" also explores how disks, volumes, mirroring, RAID and fault-tolerant disk subsystems work and interact together. The book tells readers what these applications can and cannot do, and, according to VERITAS, is a prerequisite for making informed decisions about online storage approaches.
VERITAS partnered with John Wiley & Sons on global distribution of the VERITAS Series. An expanded and re-titled version of the guide, "Highly Available Storage for Windows Servers" and the second book in the VERITAS Series, "Storage Area Network Essentials," will be available in bookstores in Fall 2001.
