Contemporary distributed file systems are monolithic and only support single file abstractions. Nowadays, as Sai-Lai Lo explains, network storage devices have to accommodate new information media such as digital audio and video, with data radically different from the traditional text and binary code that contemporary file systems are optimized for. In this book, the author shows how, by combining new and traditional media, information can be recorded and presented in the most suitable way, and the value of a piece of information can be further enhanced by linking together related pieces. However, composite data and cross-reference between data items raise a number of system issues that have not been addressed properly before. Lo defines a new multiservice storage architecture that meets the needs of existing and emerging applications and can support multiple file abstractions. He also explores a number of related design issues. Researchers in the areas of distributed systems, network multimedia and network storage services will enjoy this book.

RRP $640.99

This book presents case material on modern small business enterprises, in the form of novel Profiles. These are constructed on a consistent basis for seventeen small firms, using a modern framework drawn from business strategy and industrial organization. Each Profile shows how an entrepreneur has tried to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace by fighting against the forces of 'extended rivalry': market competitors, buyers, suppliers, substitutes and potential entrants. As well as looking at competitive and defensive strategies, the book extends analysis to financial structure, including discussion of reasons for cash flow problems and problems associated with excessive 'gearing'.
A comparative analysis of the Profiles, grouped according to the degree of market concentration and associated market structure, enables new conclusions to be reached about sources of competitive advantage. The authors of this book bring to it varied insight from managerial economics, industrial organization and small firms' consultancy. Their guiding light in writing this book was that the analysis should always be well-grounded in the reality of small business existence. This well-grounded approach helps them reach conclusions on a highly practical and useful level.

The transportation and storage of fresh fruits and vegetables is an international operation where technology must be used to ensure that produce reaches the consumer in the best possible condition. The use of controlled atmosphere storage has great potential to reduce the postharvest use of chemicals, maintain nutritional quality and organoleptic characteristics and reduce physical losses.

This revised edition incorporates the latest research to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of controlled and modified atmosphere storage. Chapters review the history of the technique, the range of conditions and technologies currently in use for different produce and their effect on flavour, quality and physiology. In addition, the influence of pests and diseases, environmental factors and packaging and aspects of controlled atmosphere transport are considered in detail as well as a synthesis of recommendations for a wide range of crops.
