More Than 130 Books on Storage

With links on Amazon.com

If you want to publish a bestseller, avoid the subject of storage. No chance to win the National Book Critics Circle, the National Book or the Newbery and Caldecott awards. It didn’t stop many authors to write their book. The problem here is that the technology is evolving so fast that you have to publish updates frequently – and some authors did it -. Since many years, we think about writing our own book on storage. But we will begin it when we shall have nothing else to do. Which means probably never.

Among the most prolific authors there are C. Denis Mee, Kumar, Greg Schulz, Marc Farley and Tom Clark. The oldest book was published in 1981. Eight were or are going to be published in 2013. There are already nine books on big data.

All the 134 books, here listed generally with their reference on Amazon.com, are classified according to following rubrics:

  • Magnetic Recording
  • HDD
  • Storage Management
  • Subsystems (SAN, RAID)
  • Cloud
  • Big Data
  • Forensics
  • ECC
  • Data Protection
  • Data Compression
  • Interfaces
  • Optical
  • Miscellaneous
