Virtualization Changes Everything:
A quote from Amazon’s page:
Storage is a foundational component in the support of virtualization and cloud computing – and it is dynamically evolving. It is an aspect of the datacenter that is all-too-often overlooked, but without storage, there is no data, and without data, there is no cloud. Virtualization Changes Everything, by Vaughn Stewart and Mike Slisinger, examines the evolutionary influence of host virtualization and cloud computing in breaking storage deployment out of outdated silo models and into a dynamic, flexible hosting environment.
Virtualization Changes Everything reviews common goals and challenges associated with providing storage service with cloud computing, and addresses each through the application of advanced storage technologies designed to scale in order to support the ever-expanding storage needs of the future. The examples within the book are pulled from real-world experience, and often involve the integration of multiple innovative technologies. If you are looking for measured guidance on high availability, efficiency, integration and performance for the storage in your cloud, then this book is for you!
For anyone who is involved with virtualization or storage as part of their role, or both for that matter, should take a look at this book. The goal of the book is to help the technical decision makers choose the right storage solution for their needs. The authors go about this not by going into a technical deep dive of various storage platforms but by breaking down the technologies that are needed in the “cloud architecture” chapter by chapter. Chapters cover storage protocols, backup/disaster recovery, and storage saving technologies to name a few. After reading you will feel that you have a shopping list of the features and functionality you need to successfully run, protect, and maintain your datacenter workloads (at least from a storage perspective).
Virtualization Changes Everything sells in two editions:
