Free Book Excerpt: Managing and Optimizing VMware vSphere Deployments

Our friends at VMware Press have provided our readers a free chapter from their new release, Managing and Optimizing VMware vSphere Deployments by Sean Crookston, Harley Stagner.

This chapter focuses on the implementation of the solution. We go through the process of following the design blueprint and finish with checking our implementation for mistakes. In between, we talk about some of the considerations of being the implementer of the solution. The implementer of the solution might or might not also be the design engineer and we talk about both circumstances. In many cases, it is irrelevant as similar processes need to be followed either way.

We also talk about a number of real-life cases where things did not go as desired and talk about what could have—and should have—been done to avoid such issues. It is important to note that although some of this is directly relevant to a solution that has just been implemented using the processes described in Chapter 1, the information is also relevant to an infrastructure that might not have been designed with the understanding of the concepts and methodologies outlined in the previous chapter.

 

Download the PDF. Once you’re ready to read more, the book is available for purchase in the VMware Press bookstore.
