File Size: 3.80 Mb

Successful organizations use data to gain insights about their businesses to make better decisions and discover new growth opportunities. Gathering and storing data and extracting business intelligence is critical for success in today’s competitive environment. Database software and server technologies are used in combination to use vital information assets.

The databases that house this important business data require a stable and effective operating system environment. The Linux and Solaris operating systems excel as cost-effective platforms for database servers. As a DBA, you will inevitably shoulder the responsibility of implementing and maintaining databases running on these systems. Your job depends on your ability to work seamlessly with the server hosting your databases. The more you understand the operating system and tools, the better you’ll be able to perform. The best DBAs are the ones who know how to use which operating system features and in what situations.

This book provides you with task-oriented, ready-made solutions for DBAs in a Linux or Solaris environment. We cover topics from a DBA’s perspective of the operating system. You don’t have to read the book cover to cover; instead, each recipe is a how-to guide for a particular problem. This book allows you to focus on a topic and its corresponding solution.
