Format: Paperback
The 'Administering VMWare Site Recovery Manager 5.0' book by Mike Laverick is written in a casual, yet concise manner. The easy to follow examples and screenshots make it easy to understand the new 5.0 capabilities, which augment VMWare SRM security and protection: vSphere Replication, Planned Migration, Automated Re-Protection, Automated Failback, & Enhanced Dependency Definition combine for a one two punch to keep your VM environment well protected. An out of the box, hands-on admin guide, SRM5.0 makes implementation of a Disaster Recovery process easy and smoothe. Great guidebook!

This book is a treasure trove of experience from Mike Laverick covering VMware's SRM 5. The writing style is very human and conversational, with plenty of little anecdotes and personal experiences to be found, which greatly facilitates the desire to absorb this book cover to cover. The material covers many different vendor products that are used with SRM, along with detailed visuals (screenshots and the like) to assist the reader in understanding how they work. Even if you're not currently purchasing or using SRM, I would recommend this book as a good way to remove the FUD around disaster recovery in a VMware environment and get a better perspective on your options to protect your VMs.

This book by Mike Laverick is very well written, as the title says it's a hands-on SRM 5.0 administration and implementation guide, all the new SRM 5 features are well covered, anyone with knowledge of storage and VMware products can easily implement SRM 5.0 by reading this book, good job.

Laverick's cheeky and sometimes repetitive prose takes little away from the value of this book as a good resource for learning about SRM 5.x. The book is a bit dated, as vSphere 5.5 is the current release, but it's fundamentally accurate as the changes to vCenter SRM 5.5 are not so significant as to be greatly different from SRM 5.0.

I found the book to be a bit unnecessarily bulked up by the inclusion of all of the step-by-step chapters on the various SRAs for different storage providers, but because the book is organized well, I was able to skip the information that isn't relevant to my customer environments.

I bought both versions of this book--the paperback hardcopy and the Kindle book. I found the physical book to be better for my initial needs--developing a scope of work for a customer SRM project and deploying SRM in my home lab in preparation for that work--but I'm sure I'll refer to the Kindle version from time to time in the future because I don't care to lug books with me to customer sites if I can avoid it.

If there's a future edition, this book could use a good copyediting pass to make it a bit less localized to UK English so that it's a bit easier to read for non-UK audiences. I had no trouble with it as a US English speaker, but I think people who read English as a second language would find some of the text more challenging to understand.

The content gets five stars. The extra bulk for screen shots of deploying every SRA, which are very similar to each other, gets four stars. I gave it five anyway because on balance, this is a very useful book for those learning about, deploying, or managing vCenter SRM.

Excellent manual, definitely one to keep on your shelf. However, if you have limited or no experience with SRM or Storage (specifically replication-synchronous/asynchronous, etc) then I would NOT recommend starting with this book. Read up on the VMware pubs site and also watch the SRM/Storage overviews on youtube which will give you a much better overview before delving into the nitty gritty details laid out in this book. If you do have some exposure you should be fine to catch on to most of the items in this book with a little help from google. All others will find this book is an excellent refresher/how-to experience for SRM.

Administering Site Recovery Manager 5.0 is a step-by-step no fluff guide on how SRM works and how to configure it. It has great screenshots and diagrams to reinforce the how-to's. Mike does an excellent job explaining new features, how they compare to past versions, and limitations as well. It has helped me have a deeper understanding of setting up and testing DR plans with SRM5. I also like how there are chapters on a few of the larger SAN vendors and how they integrate, though I would suggest expanding a little on EMC's RecoverPoint integration with SRM in the Clarion chapter. Great book overall!
