About the Author

IT professional with over 25 years experience in programming, network engineering, and security. I have an MBA as well as CISSP and MCSE certifications. Currently I'm Director of Information Security at HCR Manor Care. I'm responsible for managing the corporate security program, change management, and business continuity planning. I am also the CEO of a security training company. Prior to my current job, I held positions as an IS Director, Director of Infrastructure Engineering, and Programming Manager at a variety of manufacturing and distribution companies. Before joining the private sector, I served ten years in the United States Army Military Police with four years as a Military Police Investigator. I've written a book, Just Enough Security, and various papers on security management.


"In this clearly presented text, the four authors (who manage the information security and network of a large health services network, based at 500 locations in 32 states) draw on an impressive store of hands-on experience as they describe the installation, features, and management of the technology. Following an introduction to the concepts of virtualization, the first chapters lead the reader through the installations of Windows Server 2008 and Hyper-V, the Hyper-V Manager snap-in, and Virtual Machine Manager 2008. The remaining text teaches the reader in step-by-step detail, with frequent screenshots, how to make virtual machines and services available, create virtual machines and templates, perform physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual migrations, and the various tools and techniques for security, monitoring, management, using App-V and Terminal Services, and applying virtualization on a desktop. Appendices feature a series of short case study scenarios and a list of R2 delta changes to Windows Server 2008." --SciTechBookNews "A comprehensive reference outlining the granularities of Microsoft virtualization for information system professionals at all levels. The general overview is insightful and the authors stress that each environment is different and therefore it's not a one-size-fits-all approach." --BCS (British Computer Society) Online
