Format: Hardcover
This book provides a thorough (742 pages) implementation guide on VMware ESX, GSX and Microsoft Virtual server. This would help implementers/consultants tasked with implementing virtual servers within a datacenter. The authors are implementation experts and are upfront about the fact that this book will cover only the above 3 popular server virtualization products. This book covers how a bare metal or OS (Windows/Linux) based server can be carved up into logical servers. It doesn't defocus or attempt to look into alternative approaches that involve virtualizing I/O in addition to the server itself. I give it a 4 as it seems a bit on the wordy side and could have been presented in a more compact and succint manner. All in all a good book on an interesting topic.

One of the most outstanding books ever!

This book starts by excellent teaching of fundaments (In Chapters 1 to 3) by comparing Virtualization to Simulation and Emulation and demystifying it. An easy to understand and clear history - going back to IBM 360, Physical and Logical Partitioning and OS issues and concepts are discussed to clarify and explain. It also clearly, and very honestly, points out where Virtualization can, and where it can NOT be a solution.

Chapters 4 to 7 do a superb, professional job of covering best practices for Business Case, Planning, Budgets, Deployment, Price, Usage Scenarios, and specifications. I read this part wearing both my business and technical hats. I was impressed in both ways.

Chapters 8 to 12 focus on Microsoft Virtual Server Platform, Installation, Configuration, and Advanced Topics. Chapters 13 to 17 do the same for VMware ESX. Then in Chapters 18 to 22 a greater detailed focus is on Implementation and Configuration of VMware GSX. Chapters 23 to 26 cover Upgrades, Guest OS Techniques, Scripting, and Advanced Topics. And, finally, Chapters 27 to 29 do an honest introduction and summary of Open Source and competitive products such as: Cassat, Parallels, Serenity Virtual Station (SVISTA), Virtual Iron (VFe), Win4Lin, Bochs, QEMU, and Xen.

The authors are top-notch experts in the field and they are also excellent teachers. The book is a delight to read.

Very likely the best book on the topic anywhere. Outstanding. Expensive. But if you are working in a large scale environment where server farms are being consolidated to save money, time and increase productivity and maintain highly redundant systems...this book is for you.

Yeah, I know it's not a history book like the rest of my reviews. But hey, I have to pay for my amazon orders some how.
