As you can see by the image bar at the top of this blog post – this week my book on vSphere4 has been listed on Amazon for pre-order. The book has been been placed on a Fast-Track programme internally to McGraw-Hill. At the moment the book is in what they call “copy edit” phase. So essentially the writing has stopped, and its in the hands of the publisher. It’s been proof-read a number of times – but goes through round of checking, and prep work ready to roll through the printers factory. When they have done that round of checking – it will be my last chance to make any tweaks. I’ve got about 2 pages of A4 notes to impleament and couple of images to add – but nothing major. For example this week I discovered some ESX hosts which had fan/heat problems – and of course, vSphere4′s “health status” was alerting me to this fact. I wanna put that image into the book to show how vSphere4 has much better hardware awareness than previous versions.
Before I start work on the new SRM book in September – I’m gonna put some PDFs together to cover the new ChargeBack, AppSpeeed and ConfigControl systems that were release a couple of weeks ago…
