Authors Stephen R Smoot and Nam K Tan, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that enables you to consolidate services from data centers and remote branch offices. Smoot and Tan, begin by showing you how to build a next-generation IT infrastructure. In addition, the authors discuss DC virtualization, particularly server and storage virtualization. They then discuss the virtualization and integration of intelligent service elements such a firewalls and server load balances in the services aggregation layer before moving on to tackle the various next generation WAN technologies for the WAN Module of the enterprise. The authors then, examine the WAN performance problem from a theoretical viewpoint to derive the required elements of a solution. Next, the authors focus on the design and deployment of the various WAN optimization interception and redirection mechanisms in the DC. In addition, the authors further elaborate on the session interception techniques that can be deployed in private cloud computing building blocks. They then look at a different private computing building block¿the storage module. Next, the authors cover the various security considerations from the server virtualization perspective when implementing cloud IaaS offerings. Finally, they conclude with a number of case studies that include design; as well as, deployment topics, basic configurations, and tutorials on some of the more complex concepts. The primary goal of this most excellent book, is to allow you to leverage WAN optimization in order to keep performance high. Perhaps more importantly, this book focuses on building a routing and switching platform to provide a foundation for cloud computing services.
