VMware vSphere 6: Das umfassende Handbuch – Preliminary Information


is slated to be published on January, 28th in 2016 by Rheinwerk Verlag (formerly known as Galileo Computing)! It’s a compendium about VMware vSphere 6 totalling 1’150 pages (ISBN 978-3-8362-3816-8). It includes Best Practices, and know-how transfer with real-world tips and walk-through for installation, implementation, and integration of physical as well as software components.

Personally, I have contributed four chapters:

  • vSphere Storage Architecture (contributing Virtual SAN 6.1, and Virtual Volumes leveraging EMC vVNX Tech Preview)
  • EMC VNX2 for vSphere (including EMC Solutions Integration Services for vSphere Webclient)
  • Data Protection with VDP (including EMC Data Domain, and EMC Avatar integration)
  • Converged Systems (including EVO:RAIL)

As you can imagine these contributions were quite tedious and work-intense (totalling more than 400 pages, of which 110 pages are net new). Thanks to VSAN, NUCs, and Mac Mini systems I was able to move my lab to a vacation rental in Southern France. See below 😉
