This book is a crash course on getting your virtualization infrastructure working, creating a virtual machine, and making it more robust by anticipating failures. You will also learn how to create a virtual network so that your virtual machines can communicate among themselves and the rest of the world. You will even learn to how to calculate the costs involved in your Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization solution.
