For many years the RHCE from Red Hat has been based on managing
services on a single Red Hat host. The big question is: how many RHCEs
manage just a single host? With that in mind, Red Hat has updated the
exam and training to support Ansible, allowing you to learn to manage
The mid-twentieth century saw a change in paradigms of art history: iconology. The main claim of this novel trend in art history was that renowned Renaissance artists (such as Botticelli, Leonardo, or Michelangelo) created imaginative syntheses between their art and contemporary cosmology, philosophy, theology, and...

This first chapter is a primer on how virtualization is used to
create a software-defined data center (an SDDC) . One of the
central pillars of the software-defined data center is the use of
software defined networking (SDN). To better understand
NSX-T (VMware’s SDN solution), it is best to first understand
This book introduces you to the world of data science. It reveals the proper way to do data science.

Philosophical questions, when first encountered by the uninitiated, often
seem either silly or meaningless. Why is there something rather than
nothing? Do physical objects continue to exist when nobody is perceiv-
ing them? Does it make sense to say “this sentence is false”? What is
beauty? This book boldly adds a new...
