Format: Paperback
Consider this a fairly high level blueprint for the infrastructure underneath your cloud, not a schematic for building the entire cloud, and you won't be disappointed. This book provides an excellent foundation for those trying understand VMware's vision of cloud computing and how VMware vSphere components (vCenter, SRM, View, CapacityIQ, etc.) map into that domain. It provides an overview of the various VMware technologies, as well as explaining some use cases for those technologies. One of the earlier sections is entitled, "What is Virtualization?" If that doesn't give you an idea of the level of this book, I don't know what to say. I am not new to VMware or virtualization, and I still found this a useful read: it provides a solid refresher.

For more information on this topic, including VMware vCloud Director, look for #24 in the series: Cloud Computing with VMware vCloud Director (Short Topics in System Administration, Volume 24)
