Overview

Microsoft Virtualization: Master Microsoft Server, Desktop, Application, and Presentation Virtualization serves a thorough reference for those considering a migration into the virtualized world. It provides the tools and explanations needed to create a fresh virtualization environment. Readers walk through step-by-step instructions on everything from building a Windows 2008 server to installing and configuring Hyper-V and App-V.

The book begins with the basics of virtualization, including the role of virtualization in the changing landscape of the traditional data center and its benefits, and the strategies of virtualization. It presents the step-by-step process used to build a Windows 2008 server and the process of configuring and managing a Hyper-V infrastructure. Microsoft's approach to high availability and the combination of Microsoft tools to provide a very reliable and highly available virtualization infrastructure are discussed. The chapters also cover the migration of physical servers to virtual servers; the Dynamic Data Center concept; creating and publishing a virtual application within App-V; and desktop virtualization.
This book was intended for seasoned system administrators and engineers who grew up in and still manage primarily a hardware-based server environment containing a large assortment of both newer and legacy applications.

  • Covers Microsoft virtualization products completely, including Hyper-V
  • Includes a special section on securing virtual infrastructure
  • Gives hands-on instructions to help understand and implement Microsoft solutions

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this clearly presented text, the four authors (who manage the information security and network of a large health services network, based at 500 locations in 32 states) draw on an impressive store of hands-on experience as they describe the installation, features, and management of the technology. Following an introduction to the concepts of virtualization, the first chapters lead the reader through the installations of Windows Server 2008 and Hyper-V, the Hyper-V Manager snap-in, and Virtual Machine Manager 2008. The remaining text teaches the reader in step-by-step detail, with frequent screenshots, how to make virtual machines and services available, create virtual machines and templates, perform physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual migrations, and the various tools and techniques for security, monitoring, management, using App-V and Terminal Services, and applying virtualization on a desktop. Appendices feature a series of short case study scenarios and a list of R2 delta changes to Windows Server 2008."--SciTechBookNews

"A comprehensive reference outlining the granularities of Microsoft virtualization for information system professionals at all levels. The general overview is insightful and the authors stress that each environment is different and therefore it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach."--BCS (British Computer Society) Online
