Announcing the vSphere Design Pocketbook Contributors

I am pleased to announce the availability of the Tweet-sized vSphere Design Considerations pocket guide at VMworld 2013. 01-coverToday 15 boxes full of the vSphere Design Pocketbook arrived at the office for distribution at VMworld 2013. The book looks great, the content even better. A lot of people from the community contributed to the book and when opening this book you will be treated to virtualization wisdom from every corner of this world.

Congratulations guys of making the book. We got an immense amount of responses and the selection process was quite difficult!
Today, a twitterlist will be added containing all the contributors allowing you to follow all the contributors in one easy click and benefit from all their wisdom they provide.

Availability of the book
If you would like a hardcopy of the book (and to meet some of the contributors), please swing by the PernixData Booth (#2011). It will be exclusively available there from 4pm to 5 pm every day.

Not at VMworld?
If you cannot make it to the PernixData booth, you can pre-order an electronic copy of the Vsphere Design book here.

    Can you make the PDF available for download please? We cannot all afford to go to VMworld, and cannot wait November, when VMworld Europe is over, to get our hands on this beauty.

    ^ Hoping this materializes, as I'd like to subscribe. The list that exists today only has a few folk from the beginning of the list 🙂

  12. Have you signed up for the pre-order

  13. Gabe says:

    Got lucky - A friend of mine, VMworld attendee gifted me a hard copy :D.
    Still very sad to see Frank's twitter list for this project is only the first 4 names or so (alphabetically), instead of the full 50ish - I went and found them and added them manually.
