I know there are a lot of crazy deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but this is most definitely the deal of the year for all virtualization fanatics! I just changed the price of the vSphere 5 Clustering Technical Deepdive to $ 4.99 and 3.99 for my European friends. Yes that is correct…. Less than 5 dollars for over 350 pages of deepdive material. Keep in mind that this is a limited offer, Tuesday the 29th the price will be back to “normal” again.
Pick it up, tell your friends / colleagues / family about it… Here are some snippets from Amazon reviews, but with 15 extremely positive reviews, all of them 5 out of 5, you know you can’t go wrong:
“If you’re serious about VMware virtualization this book is a must have. Regardless of you responsibilities with a virtual infrastructure administrative, or from a architecture design stand point this book is for you. The level of knowledge and depth which Frank and Duncan cover in this book about the new clustering changes in vSphere 5 is priceless. The design tips and illustrations through the book are truly invaluable. There is no other book that gets into the core of all the different vSphere 5 cluster technologies like this one, ”
“Whether you are longing to know about the transition from AAM to FDM, best practices for DRS and DPM, or are just curious to know what those acronyms are this is a great book! The technical detail, practical advice, and comparative analysis throughout make this book one of the most thorough yet concise technical books available.”
“The book is clearly written, a special emphasis has been made on making it understandable even for professionals like me who use vSphere daily yet do not manage huge production environments. The book goes to great lengths to explain all possible scenarios and I found answers to all my questions. Not only sections cover HOW the technology works, but the authors go as far as explaining the way the algorithms are working, which will satisfy the curiosity of everyone.”
“The complete explanations provide the reader all of the information needed to make informed decisions about their environment with excellent diagrams to provide strong visual reinforcements.”

Duncan Epping says
the price is 4.99 or 3.99 + what amazon charges for the download which is based on location. So that could be a few cents or more…
just spread the word to Toine, he’s going to buy 10 🙂
Ah that explains it. I figured it was something like that but had to check.
I just bought my copy! Thanks for the great deal.
Sure i would buy now, just 4$ but
You said in the article reduced price until tuesday the 29th. Now is 26 but price is 8$
As stated a couple of comments above your comment, Amazon charges extra when you download it from the US when you are located in EMEA. We cannot control / manage that unfortunately.
The price is $ 4.99 + what amazon charges. But even if it is 8 dollars, that is less than a beer in Denmark, still dirt cheap 🙂

Had a $5 kindle credit from buying a phone recently, this was a great fit. Looking forward to reading it before I take my VCP5.
