Here is the high level outline of the book I am planning. I have not decided on a title yet. Yeah, it is less important than the content so, let us keep it to the end.
Introduction to Virtualization
– What is virtualization?
– Historical overview
– Microsoft Vitualization Solutions
Hyper-V: An architectural & feature overview
Hyper-V: Installation and configuration
Hyper-V: Virtual Storage
Hyper-V: Virtual Networks
Hyper-V: Advanced virtual networking concepts
– Virtual Machine Queues
– Virtual Machine Chimney
Hyper-V: Creating and Managing Virtual Machines
Hyper-V: Virtual Machine snapshots
Hyper-V: Quick Migration
Hyper-V: Live Migration
Hyper-V: Backup and restore
Hyper-V: Management using SCVMM 2008 R2
Hyper-V: Tools and references
I would like to focus only on Hyper-V v2 and SCVMM 2008 R2. I will, however, provide a note wherever the explained feature set does not apply to Hyper-V v1. This will help me avoid an update to the book when Windows Server 2008 R2 gets released. Also, I will include PowerShell scripts where ever it is possible. Any suggestions or feedback to improve the book contents are welcome.
