New Book: VMware ESX and ESXi in the Enterprise by Haletky (@texiwill) – posted by @davidmdavis

by David Davis on March 4, 2011

I just received a great new VMware vSphere book in the mail today – VMware ESX and ESXi in the Enterprise by Edward Haletky (aka @TexiWill on Twitter or the VMware Community). I know that Ed has poured his heart, soul, and virtualization intelligence into this book as he updated it to its second edition. It now includes vSphere 4.1 and is available in an electronic version FREE when you purchase the book (that is cool, I plan to take advantage of that). Ed is a super-smart guy so I am sure that this is one of the top vSphere books you’ll find! I’m excited to get started reading it. You can pickup your copy at: – VMware ESX and ESXi in the Enterprise by Haletky

According to the table of contents, here’s what the book covers:

  • Assess VMware datacenter and infrastructure hardware requirements
  • Understand technical, licensing, and management differences between ESX/ESXi 3.5 and 4.x
  • Plan installation for your environment and identify potential “gotchas”
  • Select, configure, utilize, and support storage cost-effectively
  • Manage key operational issues associated with virtual infrastructure
  • Adapt existing network and security infrastructure to virtualization
  • Configure ESX 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
