Deploying and Administering Windows Vista Bible
Danielle Ruest and Nelson Ruest are both enterprise IT architects with over 20 years of experience in migration planning and network, PC, change management projects, and server infrastructure design. Danielle is a Microsoft MVP for Virtual Machines. Nelson is an MCSE, Microsoft Certified Trainer, and Microsoft MVP in Failover Clustering. Both are very familiar with all versions of Microsoft Windows as well as security, Active Directory, systems management, intra- and extranet configurations, collaboration technologies, office automation, and virtualization solutions. Together they have co-authored The Complete Reference for Windows Server 2008 (http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Windows- Server-2008-Reference/dp/0072263652), The Definitive Guide to Vista Migration (http:// www.realtime-nexus.com/dgvm.htm) which is referenced on the companion CD, Deploying Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (http://www.microsoft.com/MSPress/books/10938.aspx), as well as Configuring Windows Server 2008 Active Directory (http://www.microsoft.com/MSPress/books/11754.aspx), and that was just last year. This year they are working on two books on virtualization in the datacenter. Danielle and Nelson work for Resolutions Enterprises Ltd. (www.reso-net.com), a consulting firm focused on IT Infrastructure and dynamic datacenter design. Resolutions has been offering OS migration solutions for every version of Windows since Windows 2.0. It now has offered virtualization solutions for the past ten years. These solutions range from testing and development support environments to the virtualization of enterprise production systems. Danielle and Nelson have been instrumental in the development of these offerings to meet customer requirements as well as their promotion through multiple articles, presentations, and conferences. Bob Kelly, Danielle Ruest and Nelson Ruest have also participated in the production of the documentation for the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, which was called Business Desktop Deployment (BDD) when Microsoft first prepared it for release in support of Windows Vista deployments. Together, they bring this expertise to this Bible.
