vCOps and vROps Resources

health - 100.JPG

As you might have noticed, I’m writing quite a bit around vCOps. The good news are that I am not the only one doing so.

vCenter Operations Manager grew to become a major player in managing and monitoring cloud. VMware allocates a lot of resources to its cloud management stack!

Books are beginning to see daylight, bloggers are doing a good job of spreading the word and Twitter filled with vCOps hashtags.

All of the above got me thinking, so I want to share with you my vCOps online resources page. I’ll do my best to keep it up to date as much as possible and if you have a resource you would like me to add, just contact me.
