Winners of the Troubleshooting vSphere Storage eBook
Well the dust has settled and three winners have been randomly picked to receive an eBook copy of Troubleshooting vSphere Storage. For the rest of you don't be saddened – Packt is running a $5.00 eBook sale from now through Jan 3rd so you can go on over to the books landing page and pick yourself up a copy for only 5 bucks 🙂
Thanks so much to everyone who entered. This was certainly the most participated contest that I have had on this blog thus far. Thank you all for your support and kind words. Now I've heard back from 2 of the 3 winners, so if I fail to hear back from the third I'll most certainly pick another winner!
And the winners are….
Also, starting December 30th I will be opening up my annual #HappyNewSphere contest so be sure to check back. I've got some great sponsors this year including VMware Press and Pluralsight – so you can imagine what the prizes might be 🙂

Hi Mike. Excellent book!!! I bought your book and I have to say it was my best investment and ROI in this year 🙂 $5 is really fair price and it looks more like community donation then normal book price. I would recommend to buy your book to all vsphere admins and architects. It is really good introduction into vsphere storage topic. For 95% folks it is all what they need to know. However there are two main topics I would consider to add into your book. 1/ new storage systems with disk pooling and automated storage tiering because it is very common nowadays and introduces benefits but also some challenges 2/ SIOC – SDRS normalized latency because it is much more better to monitor than normal datastore latency which is not normalized among more and less IO intensive esx hosts.
Thanks David! I’m glad you like it and thanks for the support! Publishers wanted to keep the book somewhat limited in pages and I was over already, so I left tiering and SSD, etc out intentionally. That said, you are right about SIOC – I should’ve maybe touched on it a bit more – maybe for the next one 🙂
