Format: Paperback
The author includes enough detail to get started implementing Hyper-V at a level of detail palatable for someone operating a small business network (as part-time responsibility). He often efficiently distills the content of the referenced external resources into a short summary - eliminating the need to follow the hyperlinks.

The author discusses implementation scenarios from the perspective of an implementer who knows that one size doesn't fit all. I am finding it to be very helpful as I figure out how I migrate and consolidate my 6+ physical servers from Windows Server 2003 to 2 using Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V while improving uptime and adding new features.

As a bonus, the book includes coverage of the related Microsoft System Center software which I had previously found confusing (VMM 2008 R2, SCE 2010, DPM 2010, OpsMgr 2007).

The book has proven to be a big timesaver because it (1) cuts through the bureaucracy of the Microsoft-provided documentation and the hours researching product information on the web and (2) it covers details that will help me avoid problems later.

This is one of the few network admin books I have read cover-to-cover.

This time it is not about Windows 2008 but only Hyper-V R2 in Windows 2008 R2. it's important to say because many of the other available books, furthermore ebooks, have been published 1 or 2 years ago.

that told, the topics are covered in a logical order, with each chapter building on the techniques taught in the chapters before it. The reader is encouraged to move Forward to get all the details in every chapter. And believe me, you really want to read everything because it will help you a lot.

Best of all, you'll get almost all the answers to the questions you've been thinking about. It's all about details, but it's always easy to get into it. You've been asking to yourself whether you should use snapshot on a VM running SQL ? the answers found from different sources on internet may be confusing you. In this book you'll learn why not to use it or when you should use it and how to avoid any problem doing it among many other details to be aware of.

I have not finished to read the book yet. So I will update the review.

We bought this book as we were in the process of setting up a Hyper-V fail-over cluster. We were running into some problems and needed some good answers. We visited regularly Aidan Finn's Blog for the right answers and were thrilled to see that he actually had written a book on this very subject. We haven't been disappointed so far as the book answers the questions raised when you're building a hyper-V farm as we are. I like the way he can explain things and am also very pleased with the thouroughness of his answers.

Having recently set up a Hyper-V cluster, I wanted a book that would get into the finer points of the setup to see where I may have gone wrong or could do things a little better. It answered pretty much all of my questions.
