5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for learning how to create a virtual environment with Hyper-V 28 Jan 2013
By Tactical N8 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was fairly new to virtualization when I purchased this book. This is a great guide that goes in depth with real-life scenarios and examples. I have read many Microsoft press books over the years, and many of them sound like a robot talking to you. This book however is very well written and was fun to read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to master virtualization with Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 regardless of their skill level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for all skill levels 27 Dec 2012
By Jack - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an in-depth book on the use and features of Microsoft Hyper-V for Windows Server 2012. This book is a must read for those who want to play with it with or without having a deep knowledge in this matter.

I'm a huge fan of clearing things up with the help of pictures (a picture can say a thousand words) but I must admit that the author has found a way to use the pictures to clarify and not to clutter the book with them.

I'm quite familiar with Hyper-V in Server 2008 R2 and have an understanding of how Virtualization works in general. However if you are a novice or an expert, this book provides information for all skill levels.

In my opinion the money is worth spending on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect cookbook 31 Dec 2012
By Maxsuel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the way that was written, it's way too simple and perfect. "how to do it" give the step-by-step, "how it works" explain every step, "there is more" show the powershell side of the function, "see also" give you links of technical informations on technet and msdn.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have reference book for an administrator to learn Hyper-V 24 Dec 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One word- Wow! Great book to have for an administrator that want to learn about Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. The book has written to guide people on how to do and how to work. Included with Powershell for an administrator to learn the powerful command to manage Hyper-V as well. So get it while last. :)
4.0 out of 5 stars Powershell commands are difficult to copy and paste from book to windows. 25 July 2014
By Kevin Komlosy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Personally i like the books of this size, this book focuses on one aspect of a System and sticks to it.

Do not buy this if your not looking at 2012 Hyper-V It will simply not help you.

This book does include many powershell commands and examples but without having a CD so i can copy and paste many of them simply will never be used.
