Description:VMware is certainly the market leader (some estimates say 80+% of the market) in the virtualization software marketplace which creates an environment where the machine appears to be a dedicated PC to more than one user at a time. The author of this book is a senior member of technical staff at VMware, where he provides guidance to strategic partners, such as IBM, HP, Dell, NetApp, and BEA, who build applications using VI (vSphere) SDK. He has aimed this book at people who actually want to use VMware software. This includes system administrators, software architects, engineers and solution developers, researchers -- in essence people who really want to see how to use VMware. It begins with a basic introduction to virtualization. From there it goes into the various VMware products and the basic concepts of the SDK and then into great detail on what you can do to/with the various modules. The book is clearly written and goes into great detail on basically every aspect of VMware.
