Virtualization - The Complete Cornerstone Guide to Virtualization Best Practices: Concepts, Terms, and Publisher's Description

Everything you wanted to know about virtualization but were afraid to ask. This book would be more appropriately titled "The Encyclopedia of Virtualization." It covers just about every aspect of Virtualization someone in IT would be concerned about, from high-level overviews of the different technologies that might be appropriate for upper management, to a very nice series of "hands on" chapters that walk you through experimenting with several of the free virtualization options.

Whether you need a quick primer on virtualization so you can talk shop with those with more detailed knowledge, or want to get a sense of the benefits of the different technologies and how they fit into the big picture of the data center, this book is an invaluable resource. It gives you the vocabulary and understanding of how all the pieces fit together than websites and technical manuals often miss.

A must-buy comprehensive introduction.

It provides a detailed introduction to key topics including Server Virtualization, Software Options, and managing a Virtualization Project. For business analysts, there is an informative chapter on cost-benefit analysis and several chapters on best practices and pitfalls.

The writing style and very well organized structural approach to the topics makes this book very readable by technology analysts, CIOs, and technical project managers who need to be able see the big picture of the "forest through the trees" in order to understand the total corporate ROI issues with virtualization technology.

The well-organized structure of the book as independent parts, each containing independent chapters, makes it possible to pick and chose what information or level of technical detail is of interest to the reader while still allowing for interrelated topics to be introduced in the proper logically dependent sequence. Chapters such as "Common Terminology", "Companies Using Virtualization", "Why Virtualized Technology?", "Benefits of Virtualization", "Virtualization Technologies", "Comparison between Technologies", "Accomplishing Virtualization" and "Managing a Virtualized Environment" are precisely what CIOs, IT managers, and technologists need to know.
