About this book

Successfully create and manage your Hyper-V environment without any of the marketing fluff. This book's lab-driven, hands-on approach will get you up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Virtualization is the cornerstone of today’s data center.  As a modern-day IT pro, you are required to manage environments that are in a regular state of flux and increasing in both size and complexity. To keep up, you need practical information in a format that is succinct, yet comprehensive and highly applicable.

Pro Hyper-V 2019 breaks down critical and time-saving topics into a series of easy-to-digest chapters, showing you how to perform Hyper-V management tasks using both GUI and PowerShell-based tools. Building on your existing knowledge of Windows Server management, Active Directory, networking, and storage, experts and Microsoft MVPs Syrewicze and Siddaway begin with a foundation of why computing workloads are virtualized. This is followed by chapters covering the range of management tasks associated with virtualized environments, including: managing hosts and guest machines; networking, storage, and high availability (host and guest); disaster recovery and virtual machine migration; and monitoring.
