One of the most important ideas behind cloud computing is scalability, and the key technology that makes that possible is virtualization.

Virtualization, in its broadest sense, is the emulation of one of more workstations/servers within a single physical computer. Put simply, virtualization is the emulation of hardware within a software platform. This allows a single computer to take on the role of multiple computers. This type of virtualization is often referred to as full virtualization, allowing one physical computer to share its resources across a multitude of environments. This means that a single computer can essentially take the role of multiple computers.

Although virtualization technology has been around for many years, it is only now beginning to be fully deployed. One of the reasons for this is the increase in processing power and advances in hardware technology. As the benefits of virtualization are realised, we can observe the benefits to a wide range of users, from IT professionals, to large businesses and government organizations.

The primary goal of this book is to provide the quality education and support materials needed to enable the understanding and application of Virtualization in a wide range of contexts.

IT professionals need to know a whole lot more about the various ways of delivering services to the customers and end-users. It is no longer sufficient just to know the differences between Windows based or Linux based architecture. These days, most services will utilize some form of Virtualization.

So with the change in computing and IT Service delivery comes a whole new series of qualifications and certification. The Virtualization Certification Scheme has been created to support the IT Professional who needs to be a 'niche generalist', especially in a rapidly changing area like Virtualization.

First, you need to create the foundation - The Virtualization Best Practice Guide focuses on the fundamentals, general knowledge, terminology and concepts used in Virtualization.

This book Covers:

- Virtualization: How to Virtualize Your IT Environment.

- Virtualization: How to Reduce Costs with Virtualization Solutions.

- Choosing Virtualization: Factors affecting virtualization technology choices.

- Virtualization: Improve Utilization, Simplify IT and enhance your business.

- Virtualization Strategies: Control VM Sprawl and Overcome Virtualization Stall.

Filled with thought provoking questions to challenge your thinking and understanding, this book is your Real World Guide to Virtualization Skills, with Key information and real world examples organized around the actual day-to-day tasks and challenges you'll face in the field of IT Management.
