Overview

Creating a virtual network allows you to maximize the use of your servers. Virtualization: From the Desktop to the Enterprise is the first book of its kind to demonstrate how to manage all aspects of virtualization across an enterprise. (Other books focus only on singular aspects of virtualization, without delving into the interrelationships of the technologies.)

This book promises to cover all aspects of virtualization, including virtual machines, virtual file systems, virtual storage solutions, and clustering, enabling you to understand which technologies are right for your particular environment. Furthermore, the book covers both Microsoft and Linux environments.

    VMware, VirtualServer, and Everything Else Virtual

    The two authors of 'Virtualization: from the desktop to the Enterprise', Wolf and Halter, really have packed the pages of this book with excellent virtualization technology discussions, labs, tips and tricks, as well as many how-to recipes. If you are an instructor, like me, and you are looking for a great book to introduce virtualization into your curriculum, I would recommend this book. This book is easy to read and understand and readily lends itself to a learner's existing knowledgebase. This book also covers SAMBA and DFS integration and Storage area networks. I was really impressed that one book had so much data in it.
