Format: Paperback
What exactly is virtualization and how will I benefit from it, is the question you may be asking yourself.

This book answers that and gives you a excellent roadmap form preplanning through deployment and finishes with maintenance.

To be able to develop and support my clients, I used a number of machines that matched my clients configurations. I also used removable hard drives to achieve more diversity. It was really a big hassle tracking and keeping OS's current.
I am increasing working with multiple OS's or versions of the same OS's. I like to have the exact environment that I will deploy the applications to.
I happened upon this book and it had clear instructions to plan out virtualizing my developer infrastructure.
The book explains the different methods of virtualization and how they apply. Though it is written more for the enterprise level, it is useful for the small business owner.
By virtualizing one server, a client can have a secure environment to run internal systems, while still having internet access.

A good general book on the subject of virtualization. It's a snapshot of what Virtualization is at the moment and brings the reader up to speed with some basic history and practices that will give you an understanding of what you can use in your company.

Just don't expect to be a grandmaster on the subject, this is more for getting to the beach head, if you want to storm the virtualization bunkers your going to need much heavier books.
