New book about virtualization and SAP systems

Hi guys,

for all of you this may be of interest: there is a new book available, which contains a lot of stuff about virtualization. It is not only VMware, but also Hyper-V, Xen and Sun Solaris Zones. Unfortunately the book is only available in german.

It contains a good overview about each solution and how to use the virtualization solution for your SAP environment.

The book can be ordered on amazon, bol etc.

    Are there plans for an English version?

    • The book is good for beginners to help making a vendor decision and for intermediate users as an installation guide.

      It basically walks the reader through the installation of VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, SLES with Xen and Sun Solaris-Zones.

      I personally would have preferred to see a little bit more about optimization, but it is definitely a good first release.

      One word of warning: I ordered the book directly from SAP Press Germany and even though I got charged $25 for shipping it didn't arrive in prime condition. In fact all corners were bumped and there was also a minor cut across the side of the book. This seems to be caused by using a box for shipping that barely fits the book.

      Regardless of the shipping experience I recommend the book if you can read German.
