Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Andrew Weber for this link. ]

"When users run out of space there is always trouble and you can be sure as administrator that trouble will be pointed at you. Whenever you implement quotas with users it is a good idea to create soft limits which provide them a warning for 7 days but during that time they can still save. Certainly some users will ignore the soft limit and push to the hard limit where they cannot go over the limit and can lose data because they cannot save.

"Course Difficulty
This course is for new administrators or home administrators with little experience. Working out quotas on a test box first is highly recommended.

"Course Support
You can find support where you can ask questions in the forum.
