I would think that there is interest in this. 
I actually have the first book that you linked too and have found it pretty useful so far. I was actually very disappointed with the section on virtualization though which very briefly covers KVM, Xen and I forget the third one off the top of my head. 
So I would think that there would be interest in this given Ubuntu's popularity - although personally I would even like to see a server book dedicated to just running virtual machines on Ubuntu server. I know I would buy it (if it was a good in depth book).

Megan with Manning Publications here.  I normally do not post general inquiries about books to technical mailing lists, but in this case I was encouraged to do so, so here goes.

I'm seeking feedback from the community regarding the interest-level for a book on Ubuntu Server.  We've had the book in development for a while now, but the project stalled out several months ago, and we must now determine whether we should push to complete it or not. In the meantime, another publisher has put out a book on the subject, and a second book has been announced for later this year (see links to Amazon listings below).

So we are wondering, is our Ubuntu Server book still needed? (See http://www.manning.com/galvin for more info.) If you have any thoughts about whether such a book would be welcomed, please feel free to respond.  If you would prefer to keep your opinion on this private, you can write to me directly at meyo [at] manning.com.  We would appreciate any input that you are willing to give.

Kind regards,
Megan Yockey
