Format: Paperback
As an IT Consultant, I've been working with Microsoft's Hyper-V since it was first released as a BETA in Windows Server 2008 and up until now, haven't had too much of a need to purchase or read books on how to administer and get the most out of it as I found it relatively easy to get to grips with. Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V however is a whole different story and although you might be forgiven for thinking that the User Interface looks familiar and that you can ramp up on this release easily, when you start to understand all of the new features and enhancements, it will quickly become apparent that you need some expert advice to help optimize your virtual environments leveraging Hyper-V 3.0.

The authors of this book are at the top of their fields in Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012 and Cloud Technologies and they have experience managing infrastructures of all sizes -large scale enterprise to small and medium businesses - and the content in this book takes all types of environments into account. When you need to find a solution on the internet or on the Microsoft forums around Hyper-V, the chances are that you're going to come across a blog or answer by one of these guys. If you're serious about delivering and managing your Hyper-V environments according to the best practice guidelines and expert 'notes from the field' advice, then this book should become an essential addition to your technical IT library. The book can be read from front to back or just any chapter at a time - depending on what information you require - be aware though that it isn't a beginners 'Level 100, how do I turn on the computer?' type book and is targeted at IT pro's and administrators who have already some understanding of virtualisation and networking.

To finish, in my opinion this is the best Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V book on the market and will be my new 'bible' to reference back on time and time again!

The book covers the full blown (GUI based) version in depth.
Only one reference to the free (CLI based) version to get started, pitty.

It's the missing manual 18 May 2013
By Pravda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finding documentation on Microsoft's Hyper-V is hard to find but this book has it all. From design, installation, tweaking to high availability and backing up and restoring it's all in there. One of the things I really like about this book is the author has done an excellent job of explaining all of the optional settings. (You know all of those optional settings you're not sure if you should make changes to.) The author explains them in great detail and provides examples of when they should or should not be changed. Another thing I like about the book is the author gives the PowerShell commands and explains when PowerShell can do more than the GUI can.

Hyper-V in Server 2012 has many new options and documentation is scarce. If you are new to Hyper-V and would like documentation and configuration advice from a Hyper-V expert this is the book to get.

Excellent intro 18 Aug. 2013
By Ray Harwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not a server guy... I'm a Visual Studio custom software developer, and wanted to leverage my MSDN license (free use of lots of software for testing) to create a few VM's on the used HP Proliant DL160 blade server I just got. Hyper-V isn't all that difficult... unless you've never done this before. This book does an excellent job of walking you through the process.

I highly suggest a "quick read-through" to gain a decent understanding of all the terms and concepts, then go back from Chapter 1 and go step by step. Some important details are given but you'll miss them: I installed Server 2012 Essentials first... but this won't do Hyper-V.

If you're just getting started with Hyper-V, this is an excellent read/reference.

Best Hyper-V book .. PERIOD 25 Jun. 2013
By Michael L. Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All of the other reviews are right on the money. This is without a doubt the best Hyper-V book available bar none. The authors are well known in the global IT community and do a wonderful job of sharing their depth knowledge. The chapters on Networking finally made clear to me these complex concepts. I consider this book a must-read for anyone who wants to administer a Hyper-V infrastructure.

Better out there I'm sure 22 April 2014
By Canadian Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
K, Again - maybe it's just me - but a book that's titled "Installation & Configuration" should cover a bare metal build to production - this book doesn't - hence the three star's - nothing what so ever on building thin clients - or how to build a thin client boot image - huge disappointment - def not a true "Installation & Configuration" step by step reference guide - I'm sure there's better out there ....
