VMware vSphere Design 2nd Edition


What You Need to Make the Right Design Decisions

vSphere is the most robust and sophisticated hypervisor product available today. It is the de facto standard for businesses, both large and small. This book—written for engineers and architects who plan, install, maintain, and optimize vSphere solutions—is the only one of its kind to concisely explain how to execute a successful vSphere architecture that's tailored to meet your company's needs. Expert authors share with you the factors that shape the design of a vSphere implementation.


Packed with real-world proven strategies, it's the perfect guide for deploying a new design or transforming an existing one. Inside, you'll explore:

  • The fundamentals of designing VMware environments
  • The overall design process
  • Key things to consider, such as server hardware selection and sizing, security, virtual machine templates, and more
  • How networking and storage landscapes impact vSphere design
  • Design decisions that a typical company encounters, taking into consideration availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security
