I have recently read a new eBook on Hyper-V Replica named “Hyper-V Replica Essentials”, written by Vangel Krstevski. Vangel Krstevski is an IT prodigy, excelling in virtualization and network design. He is an expert in virtualization deployment and management.

So the book is a small edition about 100 Pages, on how to create the replication between Hyper-v Servers. But there is also some cluster explanation,  on file sharing and SMB. for starting with Hyper-v replica this is a great book to start with.

Hyper-V Replica Essentials

It is an easy to read book with all step by step instructions on how to install the base components for a Hyper-V Replica environment.

The covered Chapters are :

  • Introducing Hyper-V Replica.
  • Installing Failover Clustering with Server 2012 shared storage functionality  ( File Storage / SMB )
  • Configuring Hyper-V Replica.
  • Authentication Hyper-V Replica. ( nice SSL samples )
  • Administering Hyper-V Replica.

What I liked the most of this book is that not only the basics are covered but also the Hyper-v Replica Certificated based. Most books are skipping this, but here it shown in a nice step by step detail.
