    Default Intermediate to Advanced Networking Books

    Do any of you have any suggestions for networking tech books?

    "Networking for Dummies" would be too rudimentary for my co-workers, so I was looking for something a little more on the novice to advanced side of things.

    Thanks!

    In what respect? Are you talking about general networking principles or the features of various switches/routers and how to maintain them?

    Both, actually. We're replacing our current Avid Unity environment for Avid's "new" ISIS. Lots of subnets and VLANs and a bunch of other stuff I need to bone up on and others just flat out need to learn.

    Here is more info about ISIS:

    I know it's not a clear cut question, and I apologize for not being more specific.

    Thanks, Bandit.

    I have a bunch of Cisco based networking books. They cover most of the aspects of novice to intermediate networking principles and functionality.

    This is a good start

    It may make sense to host a networking class for you team in the office, or maybe send them to a seminar or two.

    Your really going to want to check the cooling requirements of that cabinet and make sure that your DC or Server Room can handle that dense a stack. Spending all the money in the world on a cool new storage array would suck if your swapping drives every 2 weeks because of cooling.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Thanks, Birdman. Our current setup has MORE arrays than the new system we're moving to, and we keep that room at 58.

    The seminar route might be our best bet as we all have staggered shifts and getting together for one meeting would prove difficult.
