This blog post is dedicated to Aidan Finn
Aidan is an IT-pro based in Ireland, and is – in my opinion not just an MVP, but a Rock star!
He has just spent some exciting days at the Build-conference, and blogged more than a journalist have written articles these days.
I think I can speak on behalf of the rest of the community, and really thank Aidan for everything he share on a day to day basis, especially from the build conference which contained a lot of new and useful information on private/public cloud, and Hyper-V in Windows Server 8.
Some of his blog post

Aidan has also written several books, and the one I will mention here is related to Hyper-V.
“Mastering Hyper-V Deployment”
I remember back in August 2010 when I decided to take the MCITP Virtualization Administrator 2008 R2 exams. There were no available books from Microsoft Press, and I had to rely on my own knowledge and skill to take all these three exams. I used my lab and the resources available on the big humpy internet. However, if I was aware of this book before the exam, I would definitely use this as my guidance. This book is so well written, and covers every part of a virtualization project in general, and Hyper-V in detail. Not just Hyper-V, but also the required components to manage this entirely, likes SCOM, SCVMM, SCCM, and DPM. Aidan combines humor and an in depth technical knowledge in his writing, and it`s quite fun to read it over and over again to refresh some almost forgotten skills.
I have a hunch that this book will get an upgraded version when Windows Server 8 arrives to the market, and I`m really looking forward to this J (Can you feel the pressure, Aidan? J )
Either you are a Hyper-V expert, or brand new in the virtualization game – buy this book, and read it!
It`s not a useless sentence in the entire book, and it will help you to get the best understanding about Hyper-V technology from the greatest rock star in the Hyper-V community.
