Hyper-V, codenamed Viridian and formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization, is a native hypervisor that enables platform virtualization on x86-64 systems. Hyper-V server 2008 R2 provides software infrastructure and basic management tools that can be used to create and manage a virtualized server computing environment.

Instant Hyper-V Server Virtualization Starter will not only teach readers the basics of virtualization, but also get them started with building their first virtual machine. This book also contains tips and tricks for using Microsoft Hyper-V server 2008 R2.

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

Packt Publishing has also released and is due to publish other Hyper-V books:

  • Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V: Deploying the Hyper-V Enterprise Server Virtualization Platform (Expected)
