I know that vSphere 5.0 has been out for quite some time and most of you out there are probably running 5.1 at this point, but hey it’s a free book! The vSphere 5.0 Clustering Deepdive and vSphere 4.1 HA and DRS Deepdive will both be free on the Amazon Kindle store for two days only: June 5th and June 6th.
Both books are written by Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman. The two masterminds behind both HA and DRS. If you haven’t been reading their blogs yet, get on it. Although the book may be a version behind, there is still some great information in here than anyone can use. And if you are still running 5.0 (like me in my lab), then this is a great pickup for you.
The book goes into depth on the components of HA, DRS and Storage DRS and breaks them down to better understand the architecture behind them. It will go over Resource Pools, Datastore Clustering, Resource Allocation and more. And to quote the Amazon Kindle store: “This book is also the ultimate guide to be prepared for any HA, DRS or Storage DRS related question or case study that might be presented during VMware VCDX, VCP and or VCAP exams.”
So get downloading and enjoy some light reading!
