Last time I linked to the free eBook from Microsoft Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2016: Mission-Critical Applications, Deeper Insights, Hyperscale Cloud, Preview Edition. There is now a second preview edition available. The final version is scheduled for spring 2016. I suppose Microsoft means the spring in the northern hemisphere.
The eBook Introducing Windows 10 for IT Professionals, Technical Overview from Ed Bott was also in our list before as preview edition. Microsoft now released the final edition of the book.
A new eBook in the list is VMware NSX, A Foundation of the Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC). NSX is VMware’s network virtualization solution and virtualizes firewalls, switches, routers, ports and other networking components. The free eBook describes on 233 pages the concept behind VMware NSX, introduces its networking and service architecture, discusses the deployment for vSphere and the Edge Services Gateway.
If you know a free eBook that is of interest for SysAdmins or DevOps, please add it to the wiki doc. Please, don’t add white papers with the main purpose it is to promote a certain product.
