Now Available: VMware vSphere Performance Book

I am happy to announce that our new book, VMware vSphere Performance (ISBN: 9781118008195) is now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk in eBook format on Kindle as well as Paperback. The Paperback version should be in stock at Amazon.com by 12 May 2014.

This title was first announced in 2011 and due to a number of issues and difficulties, the book was delayed several times. However, due to the hard work and dedication of my co-authors, Matt Liebowitz, Christopher Kusek and the editorial team at John Wiley & Sons, Inc. we were able to finally bring the title to print.


As I mentioned in the dedications section of the book, I dedicate this title to Jonathon Fitch. Jonathon was one of the original authors who started this project with me back in 2011. Jonathon sadly lost his battle with cancer in April 2013.

I have decided that all royalties that is received by me as a result of this project will be donated to El-Shammah Home for Abandoned Babies and Place of Safety, a non-profit organisation in Primrose, Germiston, South Africa.
