I have seen the book named VMware vSphere Design by sybex publications in the amazon stores for a while but stayed away from it due to the title of the book itself. I correlated the title to VMware Design expert level of certification and decided that this stuff is not for me for some years . But one month back I ordered the paperback from amazon and kept it in my shelf for all these days .
Just two days back I opened this book and took a glance through the topics and I regretted for not reading this before . It is a nice book for everyone who is interested in learning vmware data center virtualization and all the sys admins who is working in the VMware environment .
Starting from the basic concepts this book clearly explains all the aspects in a practical manner and also covers in depth in to the background of each technology . It is clearly written for a designer in mind because it cover each topic from the very basics . You will be disappointed only if you are searching for a quick one word solution for your specific issue ( hope that kind of search can be done with Google , is it )
As a virtualization trainer , I can say for sure that this book is a must read for anyone who is interested in learning vmware .
