Amazon posted my 4 star review of Ed Haletky’s (@Texiwill) updated VMware ESX and ESXi in the Enterprise.
Let me start with saying I’ve read the first edition of this book and Ed’s Security book and found both to be excellent.
As this book was a second edition, I focused my reading on those updated areas and there were a few. As always Ed provided a good balance between detail and real world examples/implementations that carry the weight of his experience with VMware on the whole.
I’d recommend this book for those getting into their first few ESX/ESXi implementations, and to supplement the official VMware courseware with real world examples.
All and all a good volume to get yourself going with some real world ESXi/vSphere implementation.
