This review is from: Learning FreeNAS: Configure and manage a network attached storage solution (Paperback)
Learning FreeNAS is a superb book.
One that I have no problem with recommending to anyone.
I was initially tasked with creating a NAS system for a work project and came across FreeNAS in my searches on the web.
Being a total novice to FreeNAS and not having a clue about NAS storage as a whole I knew I had my work cut out for me.
I picked up Learning FreeNAS book about 6 days ago and I could not put it down! The book wastes no time and gets to the point fast!
Gary has an amazing ability to explain things clearly. I had no trouble being able to do some of the most complex configurations after the first read! (By day 3 I had a confidence in FreeNAS and a strong understanding of the technology that would of taken me weeks to acquire!)
What is evidently clear from the book is that Gary has a passion for FreeNAS technology and he explains it so well. The book is well divided so information was placed in the perfect sections and with his website all the latest developments within FreeNAS are reported.
I felt relaxed that I didn't have to trawl for smidgens of differing titbits of information to decipher. This book gave me the knowledge that i needed and it doesn't cut any corners.
This book initially gave me the knowledge of NAS technologies in a clear and concise manner and now it gives me a solid reference guide for troubleshooting and setting up new FreeNAS in the future as well.
