Fast Guide to technology
[Kate Evans-Correia]

Sometimes, all you want is a quick reference to clarify a point,
determine a standard, identify a cable. Too often, that requires
wading through pages and pages of text. Our editors have filtered
through dozens of white papers, articles and other references to
bring you our new Fast Guide to Technology--a series of at-a-glance
reference quides. These guides let you quickly identify different
technologies, standards or processes. We're thinking you're going to
find them extremely useful. Here are the first three in our series.

Fast Guide: Cabling

Fast Guide: Storage

Fast Guide: Disaster Recovery
