A thank you to all my readers - Amazon's 4th best-selling book on disaster recovery

I checked on Amazon's best sellers list for Disaster Recovery books tonight and discovered mostly that there are quite a few mis-filed books there (e.g. chef is not about disaster recovery!)

But the top four that actually are about disaster recovery are:

  • Michael Lucas' book Tarsnap - an encrypted storage system for Unix users who want extreme levels of paranoia about the security of their backups. Michael is a very famous sysadmin-writer who deserves first place for anything he writes.
  • Steven Nelson's book from 2011 which covers enterprise backup in general, glaringly omitting HP Data Protector.
  • Joe Kissell's book on Crashplan
  • My Planning, Deploying and Installing Data Protector 9.
Thank you to everyone who has bought it so far; I hope you have found it useful.
