Book Description

VMware vSphere is a complete and robust virtualization product suite that helps transform data centers into simplified on-premises cloud infrastructures, providing for the automation and orchestration of workload deployment and life cycle management of the infrastructure. This book focuses on the latest release of VMware vSphere and follows a recipe-based approach, giving you hands-on instructions required to deploy and manage a vSphere environment.

The book starts with the procedures involved in upgrading your existing vSphere infrastructure to vSphere 6.5, followed by deploying a new vSphere 6.5 environment. Then the book delves further into the procedures involved in managing storage and network access to the ESXi hosts and the virtual machines running on them. Moving on, the book covers high availability and fair distribution/utilization of clustered compute and storage resources.

Finally, the book covers patching and upgrading the vSphere infrastructure using VUM, certificate management using VMCA, and finishes with a chapter covering the tools that can be used to monitor the performance of a vSphere infrastructure.

What you will learn

  • Upgrade your existing vSphere environment or perform a fresh deployment
  • Automate the deployment and management of large sets of ESXi hosts in your vSphere Environment
  • Configure and manage FC, iSCSI, and NAS storage, and get more control over how storage resources are allocated and managed
  • Configure vSphere networking by deploying host-wide and data center-wide switches in your vSphere environment
  • Configure high availability on a host cluster and learn how to enable the fair distribution and utilization of compute resources
  • Patch and upgrade the vSphere environment
