Minimizing the amount of time required to boot a computer system is important regardless of whether you are turning on your home computer or restarting a server that provides services to thousands of users. Learn about three of the most popular Linux startup mechanisms and the differences in their goals and implementations.
Take the proper steps to protect your servers. Turn a vulnerable box into a hardened server and help thwart outside attackers.
Explore a new way to construct Linux and Windows images for private clouds built with the OpenStack cloud operating system.
Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization has largely replaced Xen as the default open source mechanism for creating and supporting virtual machines (VMs) on most Linux systems.
If your Linux computer fails to boot after a kernel upgrade, disk swap, or other system change, you're not helpless. The Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) gives you ways to control the boot process and recover. Or, if necessary, emergency boot disks that you create with an external tool can come to the rescue. Learn procedures and GRUB commands that can help you boot in problem situations, and find out about a life-saving external tool for BIOS-based systems.
