Pre-Review – Mastering VMware vSphere 5 (Scott Lowe)

Hot on the release of vSphere 5, Scott Lowe has released an update to one of the best general vSphere books on the market, Mastering VMware vSphere 5.

Pre-Review

I pulled down the kindle edition of this one about a week ago and moving through at a pretty good clip and wanted to share my thoughts so far.

This book is an excellent follow-up to Mastering VMware vSphere 4 and Scott provides a good number of call outs where vSphere 5.x deltas from prior versions as well as real world tips for having to manage both versions. As Scott did in the vSphere 4 edition, Scott begins by covering vSphere 5 basics and features, moves into planning, and then the installation of vSphere 5. Beyond that he moves into working with networking, HA, and security. From there he moves into day-to-day administration and finally automation. It’s an easy to read, detailed overview and general introduction to vSphere that would be a benefit to anyone who will be managing a vSphere environment.

TL;DR – If you work in a vSphere environment, you should have yourself a copy of this book.
