So if you want to learn more about latest Microsoft virtualisation technologies, so that you can differentiate your Hyper-V from your Remote Desktop Services, then this's the job. It covers Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Application Virtualization 4.5, Enterprise Desktop Virtualization, Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode, System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, and Microsoft's private and public cloud computing platforms including Windows Azure.
It's absolutely massive - 450 pages. And it has only one subject - virtualisation, virtualisation, virtualisation. But the chapter titles tell you that it's just what you need:
- Chapter 1 - Why Virtualisation?
- Chapter 2 - Server Virtualisation
- Chapter 3 - Local Desktop Virtualisation
- Chapter 4 - Remote Desktop Virtualisation
- Chapter 5 - Virtualisation Management
- Chapter 6 - Cloud Computing
And it's got a brilliant index too, so that next time somebody says "failover clustering", you can look it up slyly on your laptop, and join the conversation.
