The cat is finally out of the bag, VMware Press was just officially announced.
Indianapolis, IN – May 19, 2011 – 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.
Three books have been announced and I can honestly say that I am especially looking forward to Mostafa’s book on Storage Design. Mostafa is, in my opinion, THE storage guru within VMware and I confident this will be a must read. Mike Laverick doesn’t need an introduction and everyone has hopefully read at least one of his books. The third book is kind of a surprise to me, Cody “mr brown bag” Bunch tackling vSphere automation with Orchestrator!
