Description of problem:
SME review of chapter 3 found these errors and/or needed corrections:
(1) 3.1 Virtualization costs
(a) Buying new hardware to store data
This statement is just too much smoke n mirrors for a technical
guide. If a guest needs more storage, it has to be acquired
somehow -- either allocate more existing, shared/network storage,
or buy more & attach to guest VM.
-- no different than any other system.
This really needs to be removed.
"Maintaining installed software"
Older versions of software may not run on newer,
bare metal machines directly.
Running the older software within a virtualized guest
that is presented an older machine style, but is running on
a larger, faster system, may extend the life of the installed
software, and take advantage of the performance from
(2) 3.4 Disaster Recovery
(a) remove the part of the semicolon & end the sentence:
"... a few minutes; all that is required is to replace
the damaged virtual disk files with undamaged ones."
"... a few minutes."
"If the requirements for live migration are followed,
can be restarted on another host with the worst case delay being the
restore of guest data. A host hardware disaster such as a failing
cpu, memory bank, network interface, or power supply can be
reduced to the reboot time of a guest on another host."
(3) 3.5 Security
(a) The first sentence is hard to read and understand.
I would rephrase the sentence to something like:
"The host supporting virtualized machines require few
if any network services."
(4) 3.7 Rackspace
-- remove this section; add as a topic like "Less space" under 3.1 .
