This book addresses the need to improve TCP’s performance inside data centers by providing solutions that are both practical and backward compatible with standard TCP versions. The authors approach this challenge first by deriving an analytical model for TCP’s performance under typical data center workload traffic. They then discuss some solutions that are designed to improve TCP performance by either proactively detecting network congestion through probabilistic retransmission or by avoiding timeout penalty through dynamic resizing of TCP segments. Experimental results show that each of techniques discussed outperforms standard TCP inside a data center.

The Range Rover started out as a more comfortable Land Rover with better road manners than its stable-mate, but customer demand soon turned it into something else altogether. Over the years, the brand has become an icon, synonymous with luxury and prestige, and yet never losing the essentially practical side of its nature. This book looks at all three generations of Range Rover, and also at its companion model, the hugely successful Range Rover Sport. The whole Range Rover story is explored in this most wide-ranging of books about the brand.
From up-market Land Rover to art exhibit in the Louvre, from storming off-roader to luxury executive transport, the Range Rover has done it all. The Range Rover inspired a new breed of "leisure" vehicles, seeking to emulate its mix of on-road comfort and off-road prowess. The original Series 1 Range Rover remained in production for 26 years, until it was replaced by the up-market Series 2. The Series 3, launched in 2002, moves the Range Rover emphatically into the luxury car market. This all color book - part of the "You & Your" series - should fascinate all Range Rover owners and enthusiasts. This book covers how the Range Rover came about, the development story, evolution and model changes; how Land Rover made the Range Rover a true marketing success; the story behind the Series 2 Range Rover and the move up-market; the development of the Series 3, taking the Range Rover firmly into the luxury car market; how to go off-roading safely, and where to do it legally; buying a Range Rover, inspection advice, ownership, maintenance and modifications; specifications for all models, production figures, specialists and clubs.
