Administering Vsphere 5: Planning, Implementing and Troubleshootingby John Hales
Synopses & Reviews
ADMINISTERING VSPHERE 5: PLANNING, IMPLEMENTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING focuses on planning, installing, and maintaining vSphere environments. It is not a verbose documentation-style tome, but rather a comprehensive guide based on the tips, tricks, and gotchas gleaned from the authors' years of experience as vSphere consultants and trainers. The book is separated into four discrete sections: planning, implementation, troubleshooting, and security. The structure of the book provides readers with a balanced, deep understanding of vSphere. The authors have incorporated nearly two decades of consulting and training experience in the pages of this book. Real-world experience has been leveraged to help readers avoid the pitfalls that the authors have learned the hard way. Written by trainers, this book presents the material utilizing a practical teaching style. This experience will benefit both the new and veteran administrator alike. While this book does cover the new features found in vSphere 5, it doesn't assume that the reader has extensive experience with the previous versions of vSphere. ADMINISTERING VSPHERE 5: PLANNING, IMPLEMENTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING provides newcomers with a solid foundation in vSphere, while also filling in the gaps for more experienced readers.
Whether this is your first vSphere installation or you're a vSphere veteran, ADMINISTERING VSPHERE 5: PLANNING, IMPLEMENTING, AND TROUBLESHOOTING will save you effort and time while planning, configuring, and maintaining your vSphere 5 environment. The authors have incorporated nearly two decades of consulting and training experience in the pages of this book. More than a resource manual, this book is a how-to guide designed by professionals. You will find examples of how to install or configure a particular feature as well as tips and tricks that the authors have found essential for planning, implementing, and troubleshooting vSphere.
VMware vSphere, is VMware's first cloud operating system, able to manage large pools of virtualized computing infrastructure, including software and hardware. Building on the power of VMware Infrastructure, VMware vSphere dramatically reduces capital and operating costs, and increases control over IT infrastructures while preserving the flexibility to choose any OS, application and hardware. This book provides vSphere administrators with essential guidance in implementing and managing VMware's vSphere product suite. This guidance has been battle tested in virtual environments big and small. It also provides actionable advice for the day to day operational maintenance and common pitfalls to avoid for first time vSphere administrators. Best of all, the book includes an introductory version of Train Signal's vSphere training DVD that provides additional hours of vSphere training.
