Publisher Comments:

If you want to gain insight into the real-world uses of VMware ESX and ESXi, this book provides scores of step-by-step solutions for working with these products in a wide range of network environments. You'll not only learn the basics — how to pool resources from hardware servers, computer clusters, networks, and storage, and then distribute them among virtual machines — but also the stumbling blocks you'll encounter when you monitor systems, troubleshoot problems, and deal with security.

In addition to the recipes, VMware Cookbook includes background information to help you determine your virtualization needs. You'll come to view VMware as part of the real environment, alongside operating systems, storage, and logical and physical network components.

  • Follow best practices for installing VMware in your environment
  • Discover how to secure and monitor your network
  • Understand disk storage implementation and configuration
  • Learn resource management using the distributed resource scheduler, shares, and resource pools
  • Configure logical and physical networks
  • Learn how to clone and migrate servers
  • Gain valuable tips for configuration and fine-tuning

Many resources can teach you about virtualization and the basics of VMware. This book is for system administrators who are ready to go beyond an introduction.

Synopsis:

VMware is a powerful and flexible platform for pooling the resources from computer clusters or several hardware servers and distributing them quickly. This book provides a look into real-world use of VMware ESX and ESXi, with step-by-step solutions for problems that occur in a wide range of environments.

Many resources exist for learning virtualization technology and the foundations of the VMware software package, including installation and simple configuration. This book provides a deeper look into practical usage. Written by experts with experience using VMware in a production environment, VMware Cookbook shares tips and tricks learned through trial and error, and supplies the background you need to apply them. You'll view VMware as part of its environment, with attention to operating systems, storage, and logical and physical network components.

Major topics include:

Installation best practices Disk storage implementations and configurations Logical and physical network configuration Security and monitoring Resource Management, using the Distributed Resource Scheduler, shares, and resource pools Cloning and migrating servers Configuration and fine-tuning

VMware Cookbook will ease the burden of system administrators who want more than a basic introduction to this complex and mission-critical technology.
