Hyper-V Network Virtualization Cookbook
By Ryan Boud
Publisher: Packt Publishing
Final Release Date: November 2014
Pages: 228

Hyper-V Network Virtualization provides the concept of a Virtual Network that is independent of the underlying physical network. Using software-defined networking, you can manage the network address space, isolation, and routing without having to make changes to the physical underlying architecture.

You will start your journey by understanding the fundamentals of Hyper-V Network Virtualization and how to configure System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager to support it. You will learn about the Windows Server Gateway role for Hyper-V Virtual Networks and the different implementation options.

Finally, you will see how the Hyper-V Extensible Switch can help protect Virtual Machines by using Hyper-V Extensible Port ACLs.

    .....Hyper-V Networking ...One of the most challenging things I found getting to grips with Hyper-V was configuring software defined networking. Having come from a VMware background I found that Microsofts way is very different for HyperV. Introducing this very handy cookbook that came in handy in real work situation when I was tasked several new VLAN into our HyperV clusters. I'd recommend this book for similar VMWare IT Pros who are looking to develop their knowledge in HyperV.

      FULL DISCLOSURE: I received a free book for review of Hyper-V Network Virtualization Cookbook. Positive and Negative feedback welcome.

      Hyper-V Network Virtualization Cookbook is a valuable resource for any admin looking to understand and implement a full-featured SCVMM network infrastructure.

      The Hyper-V Network Virtualization Cookbook is a focused, step-by-step resource for understanding System Center Virtual Machine Manager networking, which is arguably the most complex component of the SCVMM/Hyper-V environment. I found the recipes for every step, including foundational components like services, groups and policies, to installing SQL and SCVMM, to configuring Logical Networks, Port Profiles, Logical Switches, Network Isolation and Network ACLs helpful in understanding not only the concepts, but also the flow for implementing them. The Microsoft approach is very different from other technologies, such as from VMware or Citrix, and the book provides concise "learning by doing" sections. It also keeps a very enterprise mindset and includes highly-available designs.

      There are two drawbacks to the book. First is the title. It book is geared to SCVMM and not the basic, out-of-the box Hyper-V networking (which is relatively easy to grasp and doesn't need too much explanation). Second, it doesn't cover installing Hyper-V, though this task isn't too difficult either and is covered in other books. By the time you look at SCVMM, you probably have a good understanding of Hyper-V.

        I really like about this book is the author has done an excellent job of explaining all very nicely. This book would be useful to any Hyper-V user on virtually any version of Hyper-V because it explains why you would make certain choices rather than walking through a step by step series of screen shots. If you're just getting started with Hyper-V, this is an excellent book.

          Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very detailed and took you through the steps to building your own cloud environment. What i did like about this particular book was that when it came to the network virtualization section, it described how to build the Gateway/NAT device not only via Template (which is the way it is mentioned in most Microsoft literature and can some times seem confusing at best!) but also manually which was a great help. All in all i would definitely recommend this book
