Today, VMblog.com is launching a new and much overdue feature to the Web site - a virtualization bookstore.
I've had many people contact me over the years asking about various virtualization books, so I'm glad to hear that people are still ordering books on the subject. I've authored two virtualization books myself and I've done technical reviews on a few others. And I must say, the world of virtualization continues to change and evolve, and these books continue to get better and better. And the subject matter continues to grow as well, with books now covering application, storage, desktop and server virtualization as well as specialty topics such as programming, scripting, testing, and more.
Please check out the new bookstore section from the menu item at the top of the site in the main navigation bar, or click the following link to go straight to the new virtualization bookstore page.
I've tried to gather a broad listing of books on the subject, but I'm sure there are more out there that I have missed. And I know there are new books coming out all the time... So please, if there is a good book you'd like to see added to the list, or if you have authored a new book that is coming out shortly or just hit the store shelves, please notify me via the Contact Us page. I'd love to add more and keep this section current.
There are also a few books that I am currently reading or thought should be called out and these are placed at the top of the bookstore. These include:
- Visible Ops Private Cloud: From Virtualization to Private Cloud in 4 Practical Steps written by Andi Mann, Kurt Milne, and Jeanne Morain.
- Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 written by Augusto Alvarez
- Maximum vSphere: Tips, How-Tos, and Best Practices for
Working with VMware vSphere 4 written by Eric Siebert
- VMware vSphere PowerCLI Reference: Automating vSphere Administration written by Luc Dekens, Alan Renouf, Glenn Sizemore, Arnim van Lieshout and Jonathan Medd
- And I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy of Mastering VMware vSphere "X" by Scott Lowe
If you find the material of interest, I hope you are able to support the authors by purchasing their books.
Thanks, and Enjoy!
