In this book, we've not tried to describe the most technically complex VMware problems, simply the most common. The principles of virtualization described herein are designed to allow virtual administrators improve performance of the environment they already by eliminating common misconfigurations and mistakes. In the past 10 years I've spoken with thousands of virtualized customers. These problems are the ones I hear about time and time again.
