I’m very excited to announce that the vRealize Network Insight Cookbook is now available! After one year of research and writing, 51.142 words, 280 pages, and 107 draft versions later, this has been the most rewarding challenge of my career, and I hope you like the result.

NOTE: Due to 2020 being 2020, all royalty proceeds will go to the Red Cross, NAACP, and ACLU. Learn about Network Insight, while also doing something good.

Expect a lot of technical information. The why, how, and what of Network Insight gets a turn, but it’s mostly a technical deep dive. Topics like the internal architecture, troubleshooting the platform, the composition of the search engine, how to use specific features and data, what to configure, how to automate against Network Insight, and much more.

When you get to the end of the Cookbook, you’ll be a Network Insight Samurai and will have enough tips and tricks to become a better network & security engineer.

Your primary source for the Cookbook is Leanpub.com/networkinsight. If you’d like to get a physical copy, a paperback is available on Amazon.


vRealize Network Insight Cookbook - Digital vRealize Network Insight Cookbook - Paperback

The reason for picking Leanpub as the primary distribution channel is simple; it’s better for our planet to read digitally, and I plan on updating the Cookbook every six months. Leanpub allows me to write in an agile way, publishing new versions to keep up with the Network Insight releases. It also allows me to write in Markdown, which is an added benefit. 😉

I would love to get your feedback. If you get the book (first, thank you!), and have any comments, please reach out to me on any medium.

Share the wealth!
