Perhaps you are a technology professional who has not had a chance to serve on the front lines of virtualization but would like to know what the key considerations are when planning and implementing the industry-leading vSphere virtual infrastructure solution. Maybe you have been stuck in a position trudging along with a competing virtualization platform that is based on a legacy general-purpose operating system, looking for a great primer to quickly get up to speed on VMware vSphere concepts and terminology — and a chance to see how straightforward things are when purpose built for cloud infrastructure.
I recently had the opportunity to review the new book on VMware vSphere 5 by Eric Maillé and René-François Mennecier entitled Building a Virtual Datacenter. It covers a lot of ground and would be very good resource for those ramping up on VMware technologies. With a foreword by Chad Sakac, you know it’s legit.
