One of my dreams has always been to write a book. Today this dream starts as I signed a contract with Packt Publishing.
Packt is a large publisher of IT-books (total 1714 titles ) and has 49 titles on cloud and virtualization. Some names of authors who wrote books for Packt are Leandro Carvalho, Prasenjit Sarkar, Jason Langone and Andre Leibovici.
The draft title of the book will be ‘Managing the Microsoft Hybrid Cloud’ . In this book I will explain the architecture of Windows Azure Infrastructure Services, how to connect on-premise datacenters running System Center 2012 to Windows Azure. You will learn about Disaster Recovery Orchestration, monitoring, backup of on-premise VMs to Azure, migration of VMs to Azure, cloudbursting and much, much more.
It will be a technical guide of how Microsoft translated their Cloud OS vision into solutions.
Writing a book will take lots and lots of hours. I am very gratefull to my girlfriend and QNH, my company, for supporting me full on making this dream come true!
Also I will get support of Microsoft.
The release of the book is scheduled for Q1 2014. During the next months I will update you on my experiences.
If you want to be a reviewer of the book please let me know! (mvdb22 at gmail dot com)
