Brush Up Your Data Storage Knowledge With These Books

Reading all this data storage information online is fine, but you can’t beat the feeling of a physical book. They are often written by experts in the field and contain comprehensive, detailed information about all aspects of data storage. If you’re looking for an interesting read for the commute, or perhaps reading about data winds you down before bed, we’ve got you covered with a list of some of the best books to help you brush up your data storage knowledge.

First up is ‘Developments in Data Storage: Materials Perspective’. Storage continues to grow in capacity as the amount of data we produce increases exponentially. This book looks at the recent progress and upcoming developments in the world of storage technology, including the emergence of non-volatile memory. Those who are interested in engineering or science around data storage will find this a very interesting read.

Second is ‘Data Deduplication for Data Optimization for Storage and Network Systems’. This book discusses all the techniques you can use for removing duplicate data from local and network storage, along with detailing how duplicate data comes into existence and solutions to stop it happening in the first place. The deduplication methods it details are handily categorised into sections like how much time you have available or the size of the data in hand.

Next, ‘Security and Data Storage Aspect in Cloud Computing’ is a very timely book. As more organisations store their data in the cloud, security and privacy becomes a more pressing issue. Companies are exposing themselves to malicious attacks once their data is accessible with an internet connection. This book analyses the threats out there and discusses what can be done to try and combat them.

‘Electronically Stored Information: The Complete Guide to Management, Understanding, Acquisition, Storage, Search, and Retrieval’ has a hefty title, but deservedly so. This book covers a whole range of data topics, explaining everything you need to know about electronic data. With explanations and guidelines, this book gives you the practical knowledge needed to maintain sets of data.

‘Big Data: Storage, Sharing, and Security’ is a good companion piece to the above. While there are many publications that cover big data on a surface level, this book details the internal implementation details. It explains big data management from a research and development perspective, covering the 3S designs with detailed concepts and implementation examples.

Next, ‘Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking’ asks organisations to consider their data approach before leaping blindly into something new. This book will help you question exactly what you need from a storage solution – the when, where, what and how when it comes to leveraging the cloud and virtual and data storage networking as part of your organisation’s infrastructure.

Finally, ‘Data Storage Backup and Replication: Effective Data Management to Ensure Optimum Performance and Business Continuity’ does what it says on the tin. It offers up different backup solutions, regardless of you or your company’s technological expertise, and gives details on local and remote replication methods.
