What's better than having access to a terrific PC troubleshooting team? Not needing them in the first place! And that's what the increasingly popular "bulletproofing" concept is all about. By deploying and managing client/server systems so they work well from the start, many problems and pitfalls can be effectively eliminated. Based on an expert-developed approach, this well-organized, jargon-free guide uniquely covers a wide range of server products and client systems and focuses on practical - not theoretical - issues as it provides invaluable tips and strategies on how to build client/server systems, intranets, and extranets; make them fast enough; make them secure; ensure their reliability; and support them while reducing support costs. Stunning 3-D style illustrations enhance the text, while an extensive resources section gives you information on client/server vendors, a glossary of more than 400 terms, and more.
