System Center 2012 & Private Cloud: New Books!

For any one interested in System Center 2012 and the Private Cloud based on Microsoft technology there is a whole plethora of new books about to arrive or have arrived already. Some of them are really good and worth while your time and money, at least that’s how I think about it.

These are the books which give you the most bang for your buck:

  1. Microsoft Private Cloud Computing
    Written by THE Real Experts themselves: Aidan Finn, Hans Vredevoort, Patrick Lownds and Damian Flynn. These guys rock and know their stuff inside and out. This book is going to be mine very SOON. For now it’s available in electronic format only (Kindle). However soon it will be released in paperback as well. All I can say is: GET IT NOW!

  2. Microsoft System Center 2012 – Operations Manager Unleashed
    Everything you always wanted to know about OM12 but were afraid to ask. Cameron Fuller, Kerrie Meyler and John Joyner are the main authors for this book. But hey, there are some contributing authors as well, like Oskar Landman (Dutch MVP and THE MP Author of this globe) and me as well :). A MUST have as well for any one working with OM12 on a daily basis. The book isn’t available yet.

  3. System Center 2012 Orchestrator Unleashed
    All about Orchestrator, the successor of Opalis and written by people who have so MUCH out-of-the-field experience with the product, like Anders Bengtsson, David Allen, Marcus Oh and Pete Zerger. And don’t forget about Kerrie Meyler as well. A MUST have as well and yes, this book will become mine… However, the book isn’t available yet. So I need to be a bit more patient I guess.

  4. Microsoft System Center 2012 UNLEASHED
    This book brings all the System Center 2012 components together. I don’t know whether it will have the same depth as the first three books but yet, I have ordered it in order to stock pile my bookshelves :). And it’s available now in digital format and paperback.

As you can see, there are good books out there (or almost out there) all about System Center 2012. When you’re working with System Center 2012 products these books should be present in your department or private library. Enjoy!

These books seem to be just the tip of the iceberg. What about books for apps mgr, Endpoint, VMM, dpm. I need books on all the components. So far I can only find the ones mentioned in this blog. Will there be same for the technologies I mentioned above?
