PernixData vSphere Pocketbook Blog Edition

vSphere Design BookFollowing the success of the first vSphere Design Pocketbook, PernixData has created a new version, this time dubbed “Blog Edition”.  Where the first book focused on small “tweet sized” design tips, the new one allows for more in-depth articles, lifting the first editions 200 character limit.

For some reason, I have been lucky enough to be selected as one of the contributors!

You can pick up a printed copy at the PernixData Booth (1017) at VMworld US,  or pre-order your electronic copy today.
For more details, and a complete list of contributors, check Pre-order vSphere Pocketbook Blog Edition.

Also, if you’re located in Norway, check out Arrows seminar with PernixData’s Frank Denneman on September 16th. Perhaps I’ll see you there?

About the book:

This is a step-by-step guide that will help you understand disaster recovery using VMware vSphere Replication 5.5 and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 5.5. The topics and configuration procedures are accompanied with relevant screenshots, flow-charts, and logical diagrams that makes grasping the concepts easier.

This is an excellent handbook for solution architects, administrators, on-field engineers, and support professionals.
