Virtualization: From the Desktop to the Enterprise
Virtualization is a word that sure has been thrown around a lot lately! In this book, I team up with Erick Halter to get to the bottom of virtualization. To do this, we examine all aspects of virtualization technologies, including:
- VMware and Microsoft Virtual Machines
- Clustering, Storage Virtualization, and Distributed File Systems
We cover virtualization from both the Windows and Linux perspectives, with significant coverage of the leading virtual machine applications from both VMware and Microsoft. With over 7 combined years of virtualization experience, Erick and I share plenty of cool how-to’s on virtualization and virtual machines, including:
- Building Windows and Linux VM clusters (including iSCSI clusters!)
- VM backup and recovery
- Scripted VM Management
- Deploying DFS on Samba
Don’t just take my work for it. Read the expert reviews at:
Troubleshooting Microsoft Technologies
Deemed “The Ultimate Administrator’s Repair Manual,” this book gives you a solid overview of the different Microsoft technologies and then details the process for resolving and repairing problems with each technology. Here’s a sample of what’s included:
- Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP
- Active Directory, DNS, WINS, DHCP, and RRAS
The book also includes a handy chapter on Microsoft Office troubleshooting.
Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit
No I did not write the entire deployment kit, but I did write the “Storage Planning” chapter! The deployment kit is a reference that belongs on every administrator’s bookshelf. If you want to deploy W2K3 solutions, you need this reference. Not ready to buy the kit? No problem! My Storage Planning chapter can be viewed online.
