vSphere 5.1 Clustering Deepdive available

Duncan and I released the vSphere 5.1 Clustering deepdive book this week. The book contains the new features of the vSphere 5.1 suite. We rewrote the Storage DRS chapter and have added a complete new chapter focusing on Stretched Clusters.

Font changes
The challenge for us was to include all the new content in the book without allowing the book to grow beyond its trademark dimensions. To achieve this we used a different font and decreased the font size, this resulted in a growth of 80 pages, making it 415 pages instead of the 505 pages if we used the previous font. Please note that although we decreased the font size, this did not decrease the legibility of the book.

Special cover
The cover is designed in such a way that you can actually have multiple copies with all different shades of orange, dare I say 50 shades of Orange. ;)

We hope you enjoy the new version of the vSphere clustering deepdive series. It’s available in Paperback and Kindle format.

Paper copy – $ 24.95

Kindle version – $ 7.49

    Hi Frank,

    Is everything that is covered in the 5.0 book included in the 5.1 book? I’m trying to figure out if I will need to buy both copies

    Hi Mark,

    We recommend you to only buy the 5.1 book. In this release we included the new features of HA and DRS, but overall the HA and DRS features are not that different from 5.0.
