Book: Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 4.0

Mike Laverick, a VMware and virtualization expert and a friend of mine, has released his much anticipated Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 4.0 book.  If you want to learn about SRM, this is the book to do it.

Mike has spent a lot of time working on this book, giving up 6 months of his life!  But I think you'll agree, it was time well spent.  The book will teach you how to install and configure VMware’s Site Recovery Manager 4.0 product.  And it will guide you step-by-step through the setup process, covering in detail the failover and failback processes, various Configurations, Alarms, Exporting History and Access Control.  No fluff, no fuss.  This is a practical and technical book, and it assumes you are already somewhat familiar with VMware vSphere.  If you want to know about the common pitfalls before you experience them for yourself, I suggest you take advantage of this book.

Mike has made the book available on  You can purchase a physical copy of the book for $29.99, or you can take advantage of a generous offer for a free PDF download of the book.  Mike only asks that in return you make a small donation to his favorite charity, UNICEF
