4.0 out of 5 stars This Book is really useful for IT Professionals who are into the cloud. 11 Sep 2014
By pradeep reddy - Published on
Hello, My name is Pradeep and I am an Systems Engineer and planning to get my VCP 5 Cloud certification. For this reason I got this ebook and found this book definitely useful. here are my comments regarding this book.

Chapters 1 and 2 are for intermediate to advanced professionals and from chapter 3 the content is for professionals who are new to vCloud Director and starting up on vcloud director.

Personally I wish there were more screenshots for the configurations in the book.

Overall I would definitely recommend this book for your vcloud director reading, as well as for VCPC510 or VCPC550 Certification.

This book is what every system engineer should read approaching vCloud. It follows the usual Packt guide way, with the right mixture of theory and practice, to learn vCloud technology aspects and to quickly become able to work with this technology, obviously without the presumption to be exhaustive on every inner part of this complex world. In a few words: an essential starting point and companion during vCloud learning path.
4.0 out of 5 stars This book has a ton of useful information regarding the management of vCloud Director 26 Nov 2014

This book has a ton of useful information regarding the management of vCloud Director, I think it jumps around a little bit, however I with my personality I think it aided in my reading of the book. It has some great tips and configuration recommendations for anyone who is new to vCloud Director.
