The Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 book is on the shelves from the end of December 2017 and it’s going quite good, considering that it was my book. Now I can announce a new book project that it’s almost complete and in the final review stage: still based on vSphere 6.5, the book is focused on VCP6.5-DCV exam.

Some weeks ago, somebody as ask me how was going the Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 book, so I’ve collect some stats from the published and from Amazon. This book was the first authoring experience not only for me, but also for the other authors (Paolo Valsecchi, from the blog http://nolabnoparty.com/, and Karel Novak, a VCI and VMUG leader from CZ, both also Veeam Vanguard).

One month ago, the Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 book has been published and we already have some interesting feedback. Considering that it’s the first book experience (not only for me but also for the other co-authors), and that neither of us it’s a native English speaker, we are really interested in more feedback (positive or negative) as possible, in order to improve, in the case of a new edition or a new book.

As written in a previous post, some months ago, I’ve started a huge personal project that consumes all my spare free time. This project was a new book on VMware vSphere 6.5, really ambitious considering that will be a “Mastering” book, but the title and part of the content were not negotiable with the editor. Finally, the book Mastering VMware vSphere 6.5 is done and it’s now available on Packt site (and in the future also on Amazon).

One of the best virtualization related book of 2017, in my opinion, is the VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive written by Frank Denneman and Niels Hagoort. It’s main target is for administrators, architects, consultants, aspiring VCDX-es and people eager to learn more about the elements that control the behavior of CPU, memory, storage and network resources. But the most valuable part, is that is not only update to vSphere 6.5, but also with new technologies, like new Xeon family, new type of disks, NVMe, …

One of the reasons why my blog is starving in the last months is that I’ve started a huge personal project that consumes all my spare free time. This project is a book on VMware vSphere 6.5, really ambitious considering that will be a “Mastering” book, but the title and part of the content were not negotiable.

VMware vCloud Air is the public cloud offer by VMware (formally known as vCloud Hybrid Service) built on the foundation of vSphere and compatible with your on-premises VMware’s based data center. Actually it included several different services: infrastructure, disaster recovery, data protection, and various applications as service. VMware site and blogs cover more of the information about using this service, but there is a book: Learning VMware vCloud Air.

Mastering VMware vSphere Storage book is intented for users who already have some experience with the VMware vSphere platform and want to learn and design VMware vSphere storage solutions and how to troubleshoot vSphere storage issues. The main purpose of this book is monitor and optimize the storage capabilities of your vSphere environment.

VMware vSphere design is something important for VMware beginner, VMware engineer, VMware SME, or VMware architect. It’s not only related to know well the technologies, but understand how use it in the right way (in the right cases). VMware vSphere Design Essentials is a short book (only 176 pages), but with a good approach for design an IT environment, particularly a VMware vSphere based.

LXC (Linux Containers) is an operating-system-level virtualization environment for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a single Linux control host. Nothing completly new, but is reaching more and more interested also from big vendors (like VMware with cloud native applications or Microsoft with their own container implementation for Windows). CoreOS is a minimal Linux operation system optimized to run Linux containers, such as Docker and rkt. It has a fully automated, reliable, and stable  update system but without a complete package manager. By default, it is designed to build powerful and easily manageable server clusters […]

Orchestration in VMware environments is something still not so well explored and explained. Historically there was only vCenter Orchestrator from one side (if you are looking something at high level) and scripting from the other (if you know PowerShell or other scripting languages). Now for the first part there is vRealize Automation, but still the Orchestrator part could be necessary (for example to use vRealize Automation with VMware NSX). The book “VMware vRealize Orchestrator Cookbook” has the ambition purpose to explain how to master the configuration, programming, and interaction of plugins with Orchestrator to efficiently […]
