  1. Last updated: October 9, 2017. Two rivals negotiating for some kind of strategic partnership? Here is a link to get started. This was found on Twitter. Analysis will shortly follow. A year later, the strategy of this alliance is not outwardly clear. Both of these companies understand that they stand to gain by working together but the details of that may still be in discovery. More on this will follow as the implications of this for the industry unfolds.
  2. As of May 2016, NSX offered three options: Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise. In 2017, there is now a fourth category called Remote Branch Office. The full chart of comparisons can be found on the NSX Product Page. The following has been confirmed true as of October 9, 2017. The Advanced licensing option has an edge over the Standard option with the following additional features: Automation of security policies with vRealize NSX edge load balancing Distributed firewalling Integration with Active Directory Server activity monitoring Service insertion (3rd part integration) The Enterprise option has all of these, but beats the Advanced option with these extra features: Cross vCenter NSX Multi-site NSX VPN (IPSec and SSL) Remote Gateway Integration with HW VTEPs The Remote Branch Office option is not better or worse than Advanced but has a different mix of options. Below are the features which this option lacks that separate Remote Branch Office from Enterprise: Distributed routing SW L2 bridging to physical environment Cross vCenter NSX Multi-site NSX optimizations Remote Gateway Integration with HW VTEPs
  3. Please check back later for more details. ETA of completion: July 31. Last updated: July 3. Marshall, Nick, Grant Orchard, and Josh Atwell. Mastering VMware vSphere 6. Indianapolis: Sybex, 2015. 845 pages: Available on softcover and Kindle Picture needs to be re-added.
  4. Göpel, Ralph. Praxishandbuch VMware vSphere 6. Heidelberg: O'Reilly, 2016. Print. 560 pages: Available on hardcover or Kindle Picture needs to be re-added. This book is in German and translates to Practice Handbook for VMware vSphere 6. It is an excellent way to brush up on the language if you know just a little bit. Most of the screenshots and even the technical terms sound just like the English ones. For example: "Bei PowerCLI handelt es sich um eine Sammlung von mehreren Hundert Commandlets (Cmdlets) für PowerShell, mit denen sich ESXi-Hosts, vCenter Server oder aber auch vCloud-APIs und der Site Recovery Manager ansphrechen lassen" (279). Translation: "PowerCLI acts with a library of about a hundred multi-purpose commandlets (cmdlets) for PowerShell that work on ESXi hosts but also may address vCloud APIs and Site Recovery Manager." If you want to give this a shot and you aren't completely fluent, then the best online German dictionary is and the best site to find plural forms and word formations is Even if you are fluent, this will help you to pick out the technical terms. You will see many options for each word searched for on Leo, so you will need to rely on context to isolate the technical terms. But once you know them the rest is ordinary language! This also happens to be an excellent book. I find it comparable to the English Mastering VMware vSphere 6, published by Sybex, because both of these are designed to give you the information you need to perform as a vSphere admin rather than just pass the VCP. Both, of course, also are quite helpful in preparing for VMware exams. A+
