Books: Virtualization: From the Desktop to the Enterprise
Creating a virtual network gives network administrators a way to maximize the usage of their servers. This will be the only book on the market that outlines how to manage all aspects of virtualization across an enterprise. Other books focus on single aspects of virtualization, without delving into the interrelationships of the technologies. Coverage of all aspects of virtualization, including virtual machines, virtual file systems, clustering, and virtualized storage solutions, will enable readers to understand which virtualization technologies may be right for their environment.
