[prMac.com] Bernardsville, New Jersey - Carbon Technologies, LLC is pleased to announce the release of "Mavericks Server - Foundation Services," written by Reid Bundonis and available exclusively in the iBooks format in the Apple iBooks Store.
Mavericks Server - Foundation Services focuses on the core foundation services required for the successful deployment of OS X Server in companies of all sizes. This is the first book in a series focussed on making Mavericks Server the best it can be. Readers are walked through the steps of planning, installing, and configuring the foundation services of Mavericks Server, whether as a standalone server in an all Apple environment or a server integrated into a larger Windows network. All examples are focussed on planning for growth and the expanded use of the server's services.
* Installation and Upgrading
* SSL Certificates
* Directory Services - Including Active Directory integration
* Caching Server
These foundation services are the cornerstones of all networks. Examples are based on a decade of experience deploying OS X Server in businesses and schools of all sizes. Readers are able to follow detailed real world deployment examples that can easily be replicated on their own networks. The book presents topics in a sequential method to ensure even the most novice administrator can successfully deploy and maintain Mavericks Server.
In addition, "Mavericks Server - Foundation Services" fully embraces the benefits of digital publishing. The book will evolve as Mavericks matures. A new version of the book will be released with corrections, additions, and enhancements each time Apple updates Mavericks or Server.app. This approach ensures that the reader always has the latest information available. Technology is changing rapidly. The manuals and guides that document the technology must be as nimble.
"Mavericks Server - Foundation Services" is intended to involve the reader as a community. To support a dialog between the author and the readers, an online forum is available allowing readers to provide feedback and suggestions. The forum is intended to get the community involved in the evolution and growth of the series.
* Made for iBooks on iPad and Macintosh
* iOS 6 and later or OS X 10.9 and later
* 147 pages and growing
