After reading this book, here is my short review of of it on amazon.com.
I have long waited this kind of a book and it is finally here. Since I am very deeply involved into virtualization, cloud and VMM as a product, this book is a great companion to my Hyper-V books. Book is organized very nicely and it is easy to read and understand. All important topics are covered and if someone is just starting in this area, book will help him to have a great jump start into Microsoft virtualization management technology and private cloud logic and usage scenarios. I can only highly recommend this book to everybody who is in virtualization, management and cloud business or wants to get on board with it.
