Before we begin this book, we would like to thank the many people who helped us along the way. First, we would like to thank our wives and families for their dedication to this endeavor. Without their patience throughout the writing process, this book would not be possible.
Second, we would like to thank the production and editorial team at VMware Press/Pearson and our technical editors, Russell Pope and Glenn Drawdy, for their dedication to this book.
Third, we would like to thank TBL Networks, Inc., for providing us use of its lab for testing and developing much of the content in this book.
