Disaster Recovery or the effect of data on DR processes are also the reasons due to which organizations adopt data archiving in order to streamline data management, easy access to important data and disaster recovery process. https://sharearchiver.com/software-features/storage-management-software/

Before there was bash, before Ruby or PHP or Python or Perl, before X Windows, there was The Shell. ( )

This book, as well as "The C Programming Language" by Kernighan and Ritchie are the bibles of Unix and C programming, in my opinion. These are from the command line days, but they are still timeless reading. Highly recommended. ( )

Still a great book even after all these years. Chapters 1-5 should be read by all UNIX and Linux users. The rest of the book is useful for UNIX developers.

Just don't expect it to explain how to use X/KDE/Gnome etc. ( )

This is one of the best technical books I've ever read. In a strange way it's still the best introduction to Linux, even though there are many outdated details. After all, _all_ technical are full of outdated details -- but it's the rare book indeed that can rise above implementation and express an entire philosophy of development concisely and readably. ( )
