Open Source for Windows Administrators (Charles River Media Networking/Security) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book introduces Microsoft® Windows® administrators to the world of Open Source applications in order to save time and money. It provides readers with information and techniques for using the appropriate Open Source applications in a variety of situations, such as anti-spam, databases, E-mail, Web content, file sharing, word processing, spreadsheets, and more. By using a component approach in which readers can pick and choose their technologies, the book, for example, enables a Windows administrator to use Apache as a Web server, while still electing Microsoft SQL Server as a database. The focus of the product coverage is to help the administrator to perform more efficiently. The discussion of each option includes: quality of documentation available, how to package for installation in a business setting, and solving common tasks using various techniques. Although it offers an Open Source equivalent to many Microsoft applications, it does not attempt to offer replacements for Windows applications but complements the Windows operational routines.

Synopsis:

Helping open source administrators do a more efficient job, whether they're designing a desktop or managing an FTP server, this book illustrates how open source projects such as CYGWIN, BASH, Python, Java, Ruby, MySQL, Apache, and Tomcat can be used to solve common problems.

Synopsis:

Open Source for Windows Administrators is geared towards Windows administrators interested in utilizing open source applications to help them do a more efficient job, whether they're designing a desktop or managing an FTP server. The book does not seek to replace Windows tasks with open source methods; rather, it shows how open source projects such as CYGWIN, BASH, Python, Java, Ruby, MySQL, Apache, and Tomcat can be used to solve common problems. It bypasses the theory, programming, and philosophy behind a particular open source project and focuses directly on how each project can be installed, packaged, used to solve common tasks, and integrated with other business and server applications. All of the available documentation, versions, and distributions for each project are also covered in detail.
