Long book title, long blog post title!  Packt Publishing has given me the opportunity to review Disaster Recovery using VMware vSphere Replication and vCenter Site Recovery Manager (http://bit.ly/1kosrhz).

The book is very straight forward and is very easily consume.  The book covers installation and configuration of VMware Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication.  While the book is mostly a step by step guide, the author does include design and installation considerations where appropriate as well as a review of background tasks happening which might not otherwise be controlled by the administrator; for example the cleanup tasks after testing a recovery.

Even though the book is on the shorter side, it is a worthy read for anyone interested in implementing either VMware SRM, vSphere Replication or both.

Packt has also provided me with 2 eBook copies to give away for readers of my blog.  To participate, please follow me on Twitter @jfrappier and re-tweet this article by July 3rd  (be sure to include my Twitter handle, @jfrappier so that I can track the RTs if you are using something like Buffer which may not show an RT on the original tweet).  Only July 4th, I will select two winners.
