Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V: Insiders Guide to Microsoft's Hypervisor
By John Kelbley and Mike Sterling

ActiveDirectory

Hyper-V is another technology that Windows admins shouldn't ignore. This book adopts a "crawl, walk, run" approach when explaining Hyper-V. It starts with how Hyper-V embodies specific virtualization concepts and scenarios, then walks you through an installation of Hyper-V as a complement to a variety of Windows Server products, including Windows Server Core and Windows Server 2008 R2.

This guide touches on security, best practices for hosts and virtual machines, physical-to-virtual migration, backup and recovery, high availability, scripting and automation, and using the System Center Manager family of products (Virtual Machine Manager, Data Protection Manager and Operations Manager). My favorite aspect is that this book is available either in a conventional dead-tree edition or as a Kindle book from Amazon.com.
