So you could say I have become slightly addicted to learning about VMware. In addition to passing my VCP exam a couple weeks ago(read here), I have also purchased 6 VMware books in the last 3ish weeks. Yes, I agree that is not a small amount of VMware books….They do however appear to be some of the best books in VMware at the moment, at least from what I have heard, as I haven’t read all of them yet.
I just thought I would list them out in case anyone is curious…
- Mastering VMware vSphere 4 by Scott Lowe, I have actually already posted a review on this one here if you are interested
- Maximum vSphere by Eric Siebert, Finishing it up in the next day or so
- HA and DRS Deepdive by Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman
- Managing VMware Infrastructure with Windows Powershell by Hal Rottenberg
- VMware vSphere Design by Scott Lowe, Forbes Guthrie and Maish Saidel-Keesing
- VMware vSphere PowerCLI Reference by Luc Dekens, Alan Renouf, Glen Sizemore, Jonathan Med, and Armim van Lieshout
I am not necessarily planning on doing reviews for all of these books, that is of course unless someone would like me to, but I am sure I will do reviews for at least a couple more of them.
I am starting to build my own lab/environment this week, and hopefully in the next couple of months I will be able to start studying for the VCAPs.
