Looking forward to read more about VI3 architecture

By , 7 september, 2008 21:21

After a long time of waiting I finally received the book VMware Infrastructure 3: Advanced Technical Design Guide and Advanced Operations Guide. 803 pages of pure VMware VI3 tips for architecture, administration and best practices. I have just reached chapter two and I am looking forward to read the rest of the book.

The book looks so far very good, too.
