As an experiment I have set up a breathtakingly ugly Shopify store for Data Protector books which should work for anyone, anywhere. It accepts Paypal (and hopefully therefore European credit cards as well). It also accepts Bitcoin -- contact me for a discount code to get 50% off while I test this capability.
The books I've put there are:
- Planning, Deploying and Installing Data Protector 9 -- the book to read if you want to set up Data Protector from scratch, understand an existing environment better, or make some improvements to your backup and recovery strategy.
- Operating, Running and Supporting HP Data Protector 9 -- this is the book to read if you already have Data Protector and your job is to maintain it.
- Migrating, Cloning and Obsoleting HP Data Protector Cell Managers -- this is the book to read if you already have Data Protector and you are trying to get off an old version.
I'm not expecting anyone will be interested in the old book on Data Protector 8 (you should buy one of the v9 books instead as it will be almost entirely applicable). Also, I haven't heard of any problems for anyone wanting to buy A Better Practices Guide for Populating a CMDB in PDF from Europe, so I haven't put that on the store either. (Let me know if you need it.)
