Since moving to Lincolnshire in August 2014 and whist still working on customer sites in London the majority of the time, I found myself doing a lot of train journeys to and from London. I also started to realise that due to the workload I’ve been facing this year, sometimes juggling up to 5 customer engagements at once, that I very rarely have a few minutes during the day to actually read up on product documentation or anything else that is not directly related to the task at hand.
As we all know, things are moving very rapidly in our industry, more so now than ever before and the hypervisor and features that were once regarded as “awesome” back in the VMware ESX 3 or even 4 days now pale into insignificance when compared to the cast number of features and capabilities that lies simply within the ESXi 5.5 hypervisor. Then, when considering the entire vCloud suite of products and how they interact with each other and the hypervisor, it doesn’t take much to work out that things are becoming more and more complex with every release.
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.
