Is the author Wasim Ahmed the same person behind the pseudonym symmcom on this forum?
If it is I am sure the book is worth every penny or every pence in Euroland;-)

The eBook is available in PDF format as well. I would fine it strange if the downloads for eBook readers is DRM locked when a DRM free version is available in PDF format.

Thank you for your kind words! Hope the book serves you to expand your skill with Proxmox.

The book went through extensive editing, proofing, reviewing then more editing. We tried to keep errors down to Zero. If still there are spell errors, i personally apologize on behalf of everybody involved with this book.
But i would for sure want to know the misspells or any suggestions/comments about the book. Please post them on www.masteringproxmox.com.

Got mine from Amazon today. Very nicely done. It'll help train up people who are focused heavily on the Vmware/Hyper-V side of things, and see what they have been missing.

Awesome! Would love to hear your thoughts on the book mir !
I am very busy writing a prototype for a coming DHCP server since this requires me to read a lot of new stuff about DHCP6 I will properly not have time for reading the book thoroughly in a couple of weeks.

But first impression: I am bit disappointed over the extend of ZFS;-) For SMB's which don't have money or space for a storage cluster a unified storage server based on ZFS is definitely the answer IMHO. Either Nexenta or, to my taste, Omnios. If a HA storage cluster is a requirement later on Nexenta has built-in support for clustering and clustering can be bought as an add-on for Omnios. So ZFS can scale as well. In my book ZFS shines above all other filesystems, both in performance and in stability and security.
