Maximum vSphere is the comprehensive, up-to-the-minute, working reference for everyone who plans, implements, or administers VMware virtual infrastructure.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
To start with I would say that this book, "Maximum vSphere", it is an excellent practical guide and reference.
It simply delivers what it says on the cover: Tips, How-Tos, and Best Practices for Working with VMware vSphere 4.

It will also help you when making decisions about your future choices related to VMware with:
Storage, Networking, Hardware, Monitoring tools, Performances, and many others.

You will find an excellent table of contents in addition to a useful index.

From the start, instead of getting bored "like with many other books" by a long tutorial, you will get the "What's new" with vSphere 4 which is very useful for VI3 administrators looking to get up to speed.
You will then get plenty of information about installations and upgrades.
I assume that most of you will then skip around and focus on specific areas of interest.

Don't skip the end (chapter 14) which is very useful to put in practice, learning the new features and experimenting as it gets you through the building of you own vSphere lab.

This is not a very long book compared to others, but it is packed with very useful information very often illustrated with screenshots.

As someone who has a VCP in the earlier 3.5 version of VMware this book provided an excellent introduction to vSphere and all the changes and improvements that have been implemented by VMware in this new version. The focus is very much on the new vSphere features so if you are looking to learn vSphere from scratch then other books were be better suited.

I have found this book to be an extremely useful reference for vSphere best practice and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to build upon their existing VMware skills and learn hints and tips from a group of people with a vast array of experience.
