Cloud computing is the most significant technology development of our lifetimes. It has made countless new businesses possible and presents a massive opportunity for large enterprises to innovate like startups and retire decades of technical debt. But making the most of the cloud requires much more from enterprises than just a technology change.
Orban's book is the first time I've seen this much information on cloud in a book. This helps to answer a lot of the questions and concerns with adopting and implementing cloud IT.
The author made the wise decision to develop short chapters packed with information, so it's easy to absorb a few pages at a time.
I highly recommend this book for anyone on the journey to cloud IT.
I recently finished this book and I think it's a great to study NSX and to learn about the solution including how to deploy the various pieces. I'd recommend combining this reading with the NSX Design Guide (as mentioned in the "additional resources" section at the end of the book) to complete the full picture on NSX.

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.
