The big splash was officially made yesterday but I’m following up with my announcement a day later to help spread the message to anyone who may have been heads down and missed it. Forbes Guthrie ( ), Scott Lowe ( ), and Kendrick Coleman ( ) have teamed up to produce VMware vSphere Design 2nd Edition (a followup refresh of the popular 1st Edition).
As Technical Editor, I’m one of the few fortunate individuals who have already had the pleasure to have read the book. I can tell you that it is jam-packed with the deep technical detail, design perspective, and methodology you’d expect from these seasoned and well-respected industry experts.
The book is 528 pages in length (compare to 384 pages in the 1st edition). New in this version is coverage of vSphere 5.1, emerging infrastructure technologies and trends, as well as a section on vCloud Director design – a worthy topic which should be weighing heavily on the minds of many by now and in the future will likely spawn dedicated coverage in texts by Sybex and/or other publishers.
The publisher has made the introduction section of the book freely available. You can take a look at that by clicking this link which is hosted at Forbes vReference blog. As with the previous edition, this book is made available in both paperback and Kindle editions. Support these authors and pick up your copy today. Tell them Jason sent you and nothing special will likely take place.
