Mastering vSphere 5.5


Just a quick note for those wanting a companion text for their AutoLab deployment…

I’ve been working on the latest revision of the bestselling Mastering VMware vSphere book for the last 9 months. While AutoLab isn’t updated for vSphere 5.5 yet rest assured that Alastair and I will start work on it as soon as it goes GA next month.

Anyway, if you’re studying for that VCP5-DCV certification or just want a comprehensive practical guide for all the vSphere features, pick up a copy from your local or electronic store of choice!

Mastering VMware vSphere 5.5 is available on Amazon for pre-order now.

    Hi Autolab!
    Thanks so much for your guides! They are awesome!
    I am studying for VCP5-DV at the moment and i have a Win 8.1 64bits VT-enabled OS with 8GB RAM.
    Can i use an external HDD via USB 3.0 to set up the lab and go through the VMware Blueprint ?
    Will this work for FT ?
    Also, in order to build ESXi and vCenter, do i need another physical hardware ?
    As for storage, can i just use FreeNAS 64bits or 32bits ?

    Thank you.

    Hello. Is there any update as to when autolab will be released to accommodate ‘mastering vsphere 5.5’. I’ve been looking at buying a copy, but hesitant until I have a lab environment to follow along.
