Full Description

Companies of all sizes worldwide are looking to virtualization to change the way data centers operate. Server consolidation, energy efficiency, simpler management, and deployment and increased capacity are all tangible benefits to be gained from a move to virtual servers and virtually hosted services.

Learn from a true virtualization guru all you need to know about deploying virtual machines, managing your library of VMs in your enterprise, recovering gracefully from failure scenarios, and migrating existing physical machines to virtual hardware.
