Book review: Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook

I’ve been asked by Packt to read this ebook (Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook by Leandro Carvalho) and give my honest feedback on this book. I must say I’m impressed by the content.

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.

You can buy the Windows Server 2012 Hyper- V Cookbook  now from here.
