Format: Kindle Edition
Where do I even begin here.. Well, at the beginning. This book is really aimed at people who are both somewhat familiar with Linux and, at least conceptually with virtualization. In a nutshell, this book will take you through a soup-to-nuts clustered Proxmox install.

For a 300 page book, there is a pretty good amount of information to cover here and you start right out with an overview of then menu system - what to find on what tab and that sort of thing. This is followed very closely by actually setting up a basic cluster, the part of the first chapter that I spent the most time in. Once you have worked your way through that far, you are really already successfully running your own cluster and the rest of the book is your reference materials and in depth learning. You go through a lot of information on configuration files and shared storage solutions (which you really need for a clustered installation), networking, advanced configs for your virtual machines, high availability, troubleshooting issues, etc..

What I liked? Well, I think the book is layed out well, except for maybe placing the menu section before the install section of the first chapter. The book follows a sensical path throughout. The examples are great and clear as well as the diagrams. The book is not at all hard or too technical to follow for the subject matter. The troubleshooting section was a big help for me and I think a boon for the book. I really liked it and ended up with a working cluster at the end (actually somewhere in the middle).

Definitely another keeper. Mastering Proxmox is something you really should look into if you are at all interested in doing any computer virtualization. There is plenty in there to learn and for around $20 I don't think you can beat the price!

I got a review copy of this book from Packt Publishing's staff, which I thank for the opportunity they gave me.

What can I say about this book?
It is a nice and quite complete book/sysadmin manual with various configuration examples, sample hardware BOMs, and with many tips and tricks for troubleshooting and setting up clusters of any dimension. Takes care of covering quite every aspect and feature of the latest 3.x branch of PVE, including eventual infographics on how to set up every particular feature. Highly recommended for every Proxmox sysadmin and enthusiast, which might prefer a manual instead of looking for threads and eventual guides into the PVE forums.

Format: Paperback
Proxmox is based on KVM virtualization and container-based virtualization and manages virtual machines, storage, virtualized networks, and HA Clustering.

The book covers the basic topics with good examples and I only miss more information about ZFS.

But it worths the cost because is a perfect guide for beginners and advanced users that explains you all of the topics that you need for have a complete Proxmox cluster and show a lot of real scenarios with different architectures at the end of the book.

When you read this book you are able to manage a complete Proxmox cluster with Ceph storage cluster.
