When you’re looking at testing a new IT solution—such as implementing a softwaredefined datacenter that includes virtualization, networking, and storage—the best starting point is always to get advice from someone who has already done it. You can learn from experience what to do and what to avoid. That’s the idea behind this book. We’ve gone through the work of deploying Windows Server, Microsoft System Center, and the innovations that Microsoft Azure has brought to these technologies. Our goal is to give you the step-bystep benefit of our proof-of-concept implementation to save you time and effort. And we want to show you how you can take advantage of innovation across the datacenter and the cloud to simplify your infrastructure and speed delivery of services to the business.
