Announcement! vSAN Deep Dive book updated for 7.0 U3

I am delighted to announce an updated version of the vSAN Deep Dive book. It’s been a while since we did an update to this book. The most recent version was for vSAN 6.7 U1. A lot has changed since then. We’ve seen the arrival of some significant features such as vSAN File Service and HCI-Mesh.  We have also seen vSAN positioned as a platform for Cloud Native Applications through integration with the vSphere CSI driver and Kubernetes. There have been plenty of other enhancements such as Compression Only support, Durability Components and changes around Capacity Management and reservations. In the vSAN 7.0 U3 Deep Dive book, we’ve described these new additions to vSAN, as well as considerations around deployment and day-2 operations for vSphere administrators.

We hope you find it useful, and enjoy reading it as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it. Links to where you can get the book are here:

  1. Hey Cormac – I just recently purchased your prior vSAN 6.7 version on Amazon (March 25, 2022). Any upgrade discount on the new version? I would have just bought the new version if it had been available at the time as my homelab environment is a vSAN 7.x based build. Thanks for the time – Paul

    1. Hey Paul – that’s a shame. Unfortunately there is no mechanism to do an upgrade discount. However a lot of the content in the 6.7 book is still applicable to 7.0 since the architecture did not change considerably. The new book is mostly around new features and functionality. Hope it is useful all the same.

  2. Hi Cormac,
    I had the previous edition and bought the Kindle version of the update. The book explains deep technical content very well and it is easy to understand.
    Highly recommend the book for anyone who wants to learn the VMware vSAN concept in detail.
