Highly Available Storage for Windows Servers

A guide to managing online storage in Windows server environments

Managing online storage effectively is becoming an essential component of the information processing strategy as enterprises place increasing reliance on their data assets. The many online storage management options available for the Windows server environment can be bewildering to a system administrator, however. In this book, Paul Massiglia draws on his twenty-plus years of experience in enterprise data storage to dispel the uncertainty and provide the Windows system administrator with a complete toolkit for online storage management.

Starting with an explanation of how disks can be combined under software management to enhance data availability and I/O performance, Massiglia goes on to discuss hardware and software implementation options available in the Windows server environment. Numerous examples illustrate the use of both embedded and external RAID subsystems, as well as software management of logical disk volumes to provide failure-tolerant, high-performance online storage for Windows server applications.

Using both capabilities delivered by the Windows 2000 operating system and enhanced features of the VERITAS Volume Manager–– the de facto standard for Windows online data storage–– Massiglia illustrates how to organize disks so that all data can receive the right balance of availability, I/O performance, and storage cost. You’ll learn about:

  • Intelligent disk drives
  • Storage architectures for enterprise servers
  • Combining disks into logical volumes to improve data availability and I/O performance
  • Properties of striping, mirroring, and RAID technologies
  • Hardware and software alternatives for implementing logical volumes
  • Using failure-tolerant volumes to reduce backup windows
  • Managing logical volumes in clusters of Windows servers
  • Long-distance data replication for publication and disaster recovery

When I began writing this book, I spent quite a bit of time searching for a good quote to start things off. I ended up with two. R is a wonderfully flexible platform and language for exploring, visualizing, and understanding data. I chose the quote from Alice in Wonderland to capture the flavor of statistical analysis today—an...

The basic handbook: Encyclopedia of the basic computer language
When the 1st Edition of The BASIC Handbook was released in 1978. I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the response. It is with great pleasure (and a bit of modest pride) that I offer this greatly expanded and revised 2nd Edition.

The BASIC language has changed in many ways since 1978. With each new computer came new words, and with each new
