Storage Decisions recommended reading list

Storage Decisions recommended reading list
By Michele Hope, Senior Site Editor, SearchStorage

Okay, this is not really a scientific list, but one we still found enlightening. Prior to September's Storage Decisions 2001 conference held in Chicago, we asked many of our expert speakers and editorial staff to send us a few titles they'd recommend others read in the storage or general IT field. Since then, we've also added a few new favorites to our recommended storage reading list.

Some expected storage titles appear repeatedly on this list. Other surprise entries also appear. Below, you'll find the complete list, along with links (where available) to learn more about each of these books. Happy reading!
