Ipad for a sysadmin?


Decided to buy a tablet 9"+. Love that on the ipad app kiosk, and in General synchronization between devices from Apple and they have created an ecosystem beckons. Well, in General, is the standard for magazines and Newspapers, which began to be actively converted to an electronic form... I Think after buying a tablet go entirely to the products of Apple, for a reason love her so much. But there are a couple of questions. Toss-up between the ipad and other tablets. I work as sysadmin and want a tablet to use at work. I have quite a lot of programs looked for the Ipad, but have a few questions.

For example, there is such a problem. To connect to a remote machine via ssh or rdp to copy the extension file, for example .ldif, a tablet, and then this file to transfer to another computer over a Lan (smb) on another network in another city. Does it really do? Is there an analogue of total commander? Generally how such problem to solve in iOS?

Well, generally, if there are admins with the ipad, share your experiences =)

There are SSH clients in the AppStore, and in the console, you can use all the admin is familiar: scp, curl, wget, vim...
Apparently this is the only way. Sad, of course. Well now there is an idea which application can write for Ipad =) - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:43

Several months ago I read about a programmer who almost completely abandoned the PC in favor of tablets (only the digitization of DVDs he had left on the big computer).
As for your list, then you're doing it wrong: you need at school to connect to the server in the console and there already to work (or to access remote desktop). And to throw files on the tablet to send more — it's not true-path. Consider the iPad just a thin client, diskless for simplicity.
Yeah, something like that. I already made my choice in favor of the Samsung Galaxy tab 7.7 =) Left to sell my laptop and use the profits to buy a tablet) - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:47

www.mobi.ru/Articles/5006/iPad_v_rukah_sisadmina_programmy_dlya_kontrolya_seti.htm about the iPad
debian.pro/596 about droid smartphones

IMHO, iPad more razvlekalochka than a tool
buy Lenovo х220
I have Android phone. There everything is done without any problems. But I love to read, and Apple is somehow very nice to do. My father an ipad and every time you take it in hand and wow effect I feel, is the design matrix fault =) The more, again, magazines and Newspapers are now moving to electronic and ipad in the app shop. This didn't get =( - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:49
happy for you and for effect
what about Newspapers-magazines--what Newspapers magazines you are reading and their transfer in electronic form will be personally interesting for you? - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:52
That is what I read: the publishing house Kommersant, they have a lot of journals weekly. Popular mechanics, Esquire (depends on entries). Well, every six months Mens Health buy. + books in ibook very nice to read. I guess because of the screen, because the ebook reader on elink I was uncomfortable. I also read a lot of documentation on 200+ page PDF out screen need a large, 9"-10". And books on the specialty. recently bought administrator's guide 4 edition by Evi Nemeth, there are 1000 pages, I would very much electronically it, so always on hand and search built in =) - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:55

Almost immediately after reading the question and answers, I came across an article:
"iPhone has become a control panel for data centers".
A good example. It is a pity that it's just a monitor =) With the same success it is possible to use the web interface) But the fact that this topic is developing and investing in it — nice) - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:53
Yeah, that's just how it will help the vehicle? - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:56

IMHO, IT is better for a tablet with network connectors, a real keyboard, etc.
still with Samsung Q1 Ultra
This is not a regular task. Sometimes it is necessary. I have an Android phone, these tasks can be done with it, not really bothered. Take the tablet primarily as a comfortable reading room and entertaining. I decided Android take. Most likely samsung. Although it depends on the screen. - Janick_Bins commented on October 8th 19 at 01:55

I'm a sysadmin, I have an ipad. I sometimes (very very rarely) run on it issh and opened vim.
Sometimes I pick something in the web interface

But, I have it constantly open epub or pdf with the technical literature.
If the book epub it's all in the notes.

And by the way, what prevents to read on the tablet under Android? if you say that under it the working a program is all there. And analogue Kiosk precisely there.
