    Above and beyond the standard ESXi features - I appreciated the sections on SAN configuration. I think the book is well written and a good resource for new or seasoned VMware professionals.

    Comments about oreilly Mastering VMware vSphere 6:

    Have only just really started reading the book and specific chapters that I need for my current project. Overall the book covers a lot of content and gives a good beginner to intermediate understanding of vSphere. I do note from Amazon so mistakes in the maximums contained within the book and also I do wish every so often they would re-write the books. I have this series from vSphere 3 upwards and the changes are relatively minimal especially over the past 2 or 3 versions.
