Pearson and VMware Announce the Creation of VMware Press

Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, and VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced VMware Press, a newly created technical imprint that will serve as VMware’s official publishing entity. The newly formed press will provide a suite of virtualization technology and certification products in multiple languages and formats.   

The newly formed press will focus on three types of content:

  • Technical books, ebooks and videos that concentrate on specific applications of virtualization.
  • Decision Maker books, ebooks and videos that focus on the business aspects of virtualization.
  • Official certification materials that support VMware’s complete certification program.         

The majority of the new products will target VMware technology, primarily VMware vSphere, VMware View, VMware vCenter and VMware vCloud, which comprise the basic platform for all of VMware’s products and services.

Expert authorities, IT professionals, and subject matter experts from VMware will author official VMware Press titles.

Working in conjunction with VMware, Pearson plans to leverage the user group community programs and social channels to further engage the VMware community and offer exclusive promotions and access to the certification and technology products endorsed by VMware.

“Pearson stands for accessible, engaging learning, and we look forward to working with VMware to create materials that help IT professionals master innovative technologies and prepare for career-building certifications,” said David Dusthimer, Associate Publisher for Cisco Press, Pearson IT Certification and the new VMware Press. “Through this partnership, we will work hard to make VMware Press synonymous with exceptional VMware learning.”

“Many qualified subject matter experts from our engineering and technical communities are already reputable authors,” said Andrea Eubanks de Jounge, Senior Director at VMware, “and the time is right for VMware, through our alliance with Pearson, to establish a publishing entity as an official source of books and certification preparatory materials.”
