Edward Haletky’s Complete, Solutions-Focused Guide to Running ESX Server 3.5, vSphere, and VMware 4.X

Extensively updated and revised, this is the definitive real-world guide to planning, deploying, and managing VMware ESX Server 3.5, VMware ESXi, or VMware vSphere 4.x cloud computing in mission-critical environments.

Drawing on extensive experience consulting on enterprise VMware implementations, Edward Haletky offers a “soup-to-nuts” collection of field-tested best practices and solutions. He illuminates the real issues, tradeoffs, and pitfalls associated with VMware’s newest platforms, using real-world examples that draw upon both VMware and third-party products.

This edition adds a new chapter on automated deployment and configuration; detailed coverage of new hardware and processors; and a significantly expanded discussion of auditing and monitoring. Haletky offers new or enhanced coverage of VMFS, NIC Teaming, distributed virtual switches, vSafe, and more.

All new coverage is thoroughly integrated into Haletky’s expert discussion of the entire lifecycle: planning, installation, templates, monitoring, tuning, clustering, security, disaster recovery, and more. Haletky consistently presents the most efficient procedures, whether they use graphical tools or the command line. You’ll learn how to:  Assess VMware datacenter and infrastructure hardware requirements Understand technical, licensing, and management differences between ESX/ESXi 4.x and 3.5 Plan installation for your environment and identify potential “gotchas” Cost-effectively select, configure, utilize, and support storage Manage key operational issues associated with virtual infrastructure Adapt existing network and security infrastructure to virtualization Configure vSphere from host connections Configure ESX Server from Virtual Centers or hosts Create, modify, and manage VMs (with detailed Windows, Linux, and NetWare examples) Troubleshoot VM issues with eDirectory, private labs, firewalls, and clusters Utilize vSphere 4.1’s improved Dynamic Resource Load Balancing (DRLB) Implement disaster recovery, business continuity, and backup Plan for vApps and the future of virtualization
