Three Great Books on Virtual Server Hosting

February 09, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 176

Virtual server hosting or cloud computing is the latest phenomenon to have broken through in the IT world. While this may seem like an alien concept to those who are not technically minded, virtualisation as a concept, first surfaced in the 1960s when computation scientist John McCarthy preached about the 'public utility'. In 2010, we're no longer in the concept stage. Today, it's the topic of conversation in every business.

Virtual hosting has become the new way to compute and can be described as a pool of shared servers which can deliver individual IT infrastructures for many different users. Virtualisation can save money and make a huge difference to our environment by eradicating the problem of underutilisation of physical servers, so understanding the world of cloud computing should be a priority for businesses of all sizes.

If you would like to learn more about virtual server hosting, there are many specialist publications available to help you get to grips with it.

Here are three great books that could help you:

1. Cloud Computing for "Dummies" (2009) - This book is extremely easy to understand, making it ideal for readers of all levels. Even if you are not a technology whizz, you will still find the information provided in this printed guide very easy to digest.

2.
