Hackers Beware

By Eric Cole New Riders Publishingh | 817 pages | PDF | 5.017 KB | Download | Password: hacker No matter what field you work in, you cannot help but notice the impact that the Internet has had on society. It has opened up opportunities and markets that people only dreamed of before. As with any new technology, there is always a positive and negative aspect. The positive side is the tremendous business opportunities. The negative side is the huge security risk that is now posed to so many companies, yet few companies are truly aware of the potential danger. It’s like getting in a brand new car and driving down the road at 80mph, only to realize that the engineers did not equip the car with breaks.

Data Protection for Virtual Data Centers

By Jason Buffington Wiley Publishing, Inc| English | 530 pages | PDF | 7.874 KB | Download | Password: datacenter When an operating system or an application is initially created (version 1), there are lots of features that cannot be included. After all, if the manufacturer waited until every feature was included, it would never ship. Instead, it is released as a hopefully high-quality product but with several missing features or use scenarios that are left for third-party partners to fill. Certainly, that was true for most aspects of data protection or resiliency in regard to Windows. For the first several years, from Windows NT 3.1 through Windows Server 2003, an ecosystem developed that offered richer backup solutions and more flexible data replication and failover solutions to meet the needs of Microsoft customers. But around 2003, some of those needs started being met by the core products themselves. This included …

This book was written mainly using a Google Nexus One running Android 2.1 and 2.2. The Nexus One model was both powerful and carrier neutral, so it seemed an ideal choice. ChangeWave is a research network that examines technological trends for investors through surveys and focus groups. According to a ChangeWave survey, 6 percent of those surveyed wanted their next phone to run Android in September of 2009. Three months later, 21 percent of users wanted one. Only 4 percent of those surveyed actually had an Android phone. That’s quite a leap for an operating system (OS) that was only available on one phone the year …
