Lucas' New Book

Filesystems are one of FreeBSD's killer features. In addition to UFS and ZFS and GEOM, though, FreeBSD includes a bunch of special-purpose filesystems. FreeBSD Mastery: Specialty Filesystems takes you through these to help you solve problems you didn't know you had.

With Specialty Filesystems you'll learn to manage:
  • removable media
  • MSDOS and Linux filesystems
  • CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray disks
  • devfs
  • process filesystems
  • the file descriptor filesystem
  • the POSIX message queue filesystem
  • union mounts
  • null mounts
  • both memory filesystems, and when to use each
  • NFS versions 2, 3, and 4
  • iSCSI targets and initiators
  • the Common Internet File System
  • networked disk redundancy with geom_gate and HAST
  • high availability storage with HAST and iSCSI
  • NFSv4 Access Control Lists
  • User Space Filesystems
  • FreeBSD’s Solaris-compatible automounter
Find the ebook at retailers such as Gumroad, Kobo, Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, or directly from me.

While I normally prefer ebooks, I'm gonna recommend you check out the print version. This book comes with a spectacular wraparound cover, shown below. Grab the print from Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, or anywhere books are sold.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta get back to writing PAM Mastery and FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS. (Which, by the way, you can sponsor if you wish.)
