This book highlights, in simple language, the hardware, software, security, and administrative technologies readers should know to pass the CompTIA Server+ exam.

This book starts with hardware architectures, and then inspects RAID configurations, SAN/NAS technologies, and maintenance tasks. It will simplify Windows Server, Linux distributions, and macOS Server, from installation to user management and service configuration. This book will also uncomplicate IP addressing, subnetting, VLANs, and virtualization with Hyper-V, VMware, and KVM. Through this book, the readers can implement robust security measures with encryption, access control, intrusion detection/prevention, and disaster recovery strategies. They can use scripts to automate, learn asset management techniques, and implement efficient backup and recovery solutions. This book also makes use of systematic methodologies and tools to diagnose and resolve hardware, software, network, and security issues.

The Server+ certification indicates employers and the world that you have the skills and knowledge required to perform the duties of a network server administrator.

  • Plain-language and real-world examples.
