Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every year, datacenter managers must deliver more services faster, with greater flexibility. They must efficiently handle soaring amounts of data, and unprecedented levels of complexity. And they must do all this with lower budgets and fewer resources. Datacenter virtualization with VMware’s vSphere® 5 is the best way to achieve these goals and to accelerate your transition to cloud services. VMware vSphere® 5: Building a Virtual Datacenter brings together all the practical knowledge you need to evaluate, plan, implement, and manage vSphere 5 in your datacenter environment.

 

Top datacenter virtualization consultants Eric Maillé and René-François Mennecier begin by introducing vSphere 5 from the viewpoint of the datacenter manager and professional. They present essential definitions, advantages, and functions; review vSphere 5’s architecture; and introduce core components  such as vCenter Server and ESXi 5.0.

 

Next, Maillé and Mennecier turn to implementation, presenting detailed examples, schemas, and best practices drawn from their extensive experience. They share practical insights into budgeting, scheduling, and planning; choosing the right architecture; and integrating vSphere with existing datacenter elements, including servers, storage, clusters, network infrastructure, and business continuity plans. They conclude  with a start-to-finish case study: a datacenter virtualization project designed to support specific  business objectives.

 

Coverage includes

     •    Assessing the potential benefits of datacenter virtualization in your environment

     •    Organizing and managing a smooth migration to the virtualized datacenter

     •    Anticipating specific challenges and risks associated with datacenter virtualization

     •    Making tradeoffs to optimize stability, elasticity, scalability, and cost

     •    Choosing the best installation/configuration options for your environment

     •    Effectively linking vSphere 5 virtualization  to existing datacenter elements

     •    Driving more value from vSphere 5’s powerful new datacenter features

     •    Providing storage to efficiently support your hosted VMs, now and in the future

     •    Managing limited memory and other  server constraints

     •    Leveraging new options for service continuity and high availability

     •    Using backup architecture as a lever to  reduce costs

 

 

Synopsis:

The rapidly evolving field of virtualization and its many dimensions, can be confusing. This book is definitive practical guide for IT decision-makers and professionals responsible for evaluating, planning, implementing, or managing vSphere 5 in datacenter environments. Two world-class VMware virtualization consultants begin by concisely reviewing the fundamentals of modern virtualization with vSphere 5. They present overviews to the various datacenter elements-servers, storage, network, advantages, and functions; explain vSphere 5's architecture; and discuss main components including ESX and vCenter Server. With this foundation in place, they turn to implementation, presenting concrete examples, detailed schemas, and proven best practices drawn from their extensive consulting experience. Carefully balancing theory and practice, they demonstrate how to: * Accurately budget, schedule, plan, and manage vSphere 5 datacenter virtualization projects * Compare and evaluate architectural scenarios, and select the right approach for each environment and budget * Integrate vSphere with datacenter elements including servers, storage, clusters, network infrastructure, backup, and disaster recovery plans * Learn practical lessons from the experiences of leading enterprise customers * Implement high availability * And much more
