I had the priviledge of meeting Scott Lowe this past year at VMworld. Scott’s wife Crystal arranged trips and adventures around Las Vegas for the wives whose husbands were attending the conference. But that’s besides the point – Scott has a new book coming out soon – Mastering Virtual Infrastructure – that is all about the new vSphere software suite. Today, the book has been listed on Amazon.com. The book is still in progress and is hopefully going to be released before VMworld 2009. In the meantime, you can sign up for alerts when the book is available for purchase – http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470481382. Congrats Scott! What an awesome accomplishment!
Today, VMware made their official announcement of vSphere, the next generation of virtualization technology in their flagship ESX line. There has been a lot of coverage of vSphere online in the weeks leading up to today’s big announcement. To me, the most interesting information and the most sought after is the answer to one simple question – what will this upgrade cost me as a current VMware customer with an active support agreement.
