If you want to buy or read only one book on vSphere 4, it is the only book you ever need.

The clarity of information provided, and the depth of technical level and details amaze me. At the same time, it is easy to follow and simple to read. It is absolutely delightful and enjoyable to read. I have compared with a few other books on vSphere with this book - It could be the best book in my opinion!

It worth every cents you paid for.

This book was suggested by multiple online forums. It explains a lot of the "WHY are you doing this" that was missing from a lot of the online resources I was using to learn VMWARE. If you are jsut starting out, I cannot suggest this tone highly enough.

This book explains the installation and use of basically the following VMWare products:
ESX and ESXi
VSphere Client
VCenter Server

The author provides detailed explanations of the purpose of each product individually, but doesn't really explicitly explain how they're related to each other - you have to infer that from the text.

Basically, ESX and ESXi are hosts on which virtual machines are created and run. Both are bare metal (they run directly on the hardware, not on an already installed OS) stripped down hypervisors, but it seems ESX has a minimal "operating system" which includes a GUI "Service Console" used to to provide basic set-up parameters to ESX. ESXi has a less friendly but fully adequate interface for providing the set-up parameters. I don't have ESX, only ESxi, and am totally unfamiliar with ESX. I think you can run only one hypervisor on one machine, but I'm not sure about this.

If you want to manage the virtual machines on two or more hypervisors at a time (each running on separate hardware), and maybe move virtual machines from one hypervisor to another, you'll need VCenter Server. VCenter Server can be used with a variety of add-ins, some of which are explained in the book. VMWare Motion is one of the add-ins, which allows the movement of a virtual machine from one hypervisor to another. VCenter Server is like a virtual server, and you can manage VCenter Server with VSphere Client, just like you can also manage an hypervisor with VSphere Client.

VSphere Client is used to create the Virtual Machines on either hypervisor (ESX or ESXi).

The book is a good review of everything that was covered and not covered in the course. It follows the exact structure of the course. I found it very useful to review what I learned in the course and it is a good tool to prepare for the exam.
