VMware Press and Pearson IT Certification together created VMware Press.
The announce was done the 19th of May. You can read all the text of the announce here.
3 new books has been announced for Fall 2011. A bit long time ahead one say… but look, we're already at the end of May!!!! The time just goes too fast. I think that vSphere 5 is in the starting blocks ready for unboxing…..
Anyway, this announce confirms officially the name of the next release of vSphere, it will be vSphere 5. Quite logical one say, but you never knows, the marketing strategists are very creative sometimes…
As for now, the only informations we have are the following about the new books which will be released Fall 2011. Here are the resume of informations from the detailed page at Pearson's website.
There are 3 new books to be released. All of them will be a great read….
