Virtualization remains the hottest trend in the IT world, and VMware vSphere is the industry's most widely deployed virtualization solution. The demand for IT professionals skilled in virtualization and cloud-related technologies is great and expected to keep growing.
This perfect blend of hands-on instruction, conceptual explanation, and practical application is reinforced with real-world examples. Led by Scott Lowe and Nick Marshall, both VMware vExperts, the author team provides expertise that will prepare IT professionals to excel in using this virtualization technology.
Mastering VMware vSphere 5 is great follow-up to Mastering VMware vSphere 4 and Scott provides a good number of examples where vSphere 5.x differentiates from prior versions. He begins by covering vSphere 5 basics and features, moves into planning, and then the installation of vSphere 5. He also covers working with networking, HA, and security. Day-to-day administration and automation are also covered. It’s an easy to read, detailed overview and general introduction to vSphere that would be a benefit.
