Last week, I received my copy of Mike Laverick's new book, Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0. And as usual to Mike's writing skills, this book is well written and filled with great information on the subject -- a subject that Mike has become quite the expert on over the years. This is also the first book that I've received from VMware Press. And they did a really nice job on this one... I look forward to more books from them.
I'd highly recommend this book to VMware vSphere administrators looking to gain a better knowledge on VMware's SRM 5.0. You couldn't do better than to get insight from Mike Laverick on this topic.
So what will you learn?

occur, and shows exactly how to fix them. Fully up to date for SRM 5.0, this book delivers
