For those interested in new virtualization and VMware certification products, the inside scoop reports two new books coming down the pipe in March and April 2014 from VMware Press.
Releasing in March 2014 is a book aimed at VMware Admins who have come from an IT background other than networking, and may lack the knowledge needed to interact with the network team or solve virtual network problems. Networking for VMware Administrators, by Christopher Wahl and Steven Pantol, hopes to bridge the gap between these two roles helping VMware Admins speak the language of networking. The new book will be available in print and ebook format; bookmark the product page to check on the status. Can’t wait? Check out the new book now in Safari RoughCuts.
