Who This Book Is For

This book is for anyone who wants to learn virtualization with Oracle VM Manager and has some understanding and experience with virtualization; it is not an introductory book on virtualization but goes into detail explaining Oracle VM Servers and managing those VM Servers with Oracle VM Manager.

The book is aimed at IT managers or administrators looking to learn a new set of skills to enhance their careers as well as those looking for more consolidated and comprehensive tools to manage virtual infrastructures. It will be helpful to VMware, Microsoft, and other virtualization administrators who are looking for robust and cheaper alternatives to otherwise expensive and proprietary virtualization software. Generally IT managers and non-core-IT staff may also benefit from chapters that teach how to manage the life-cycle of VMs and generally integrate the technology process into the people and processes of their organization.
