商品描述

Lay the foundations for data center virtualization using VMware vSphere 6 and strengthen your understanding of it


About This Book



  • Learn how server virtualization is achieved and how a virtual infrastructure is built using VMware's products and solutions

  • Design to create a scalable and responsive virtualization platform for hosting the virtual machine workloads of a business. Manage compute, network and storage resources of a virtual infrastructure

  • Relevant conceptual diagrams, flowcharts and screen-captures enable in-depth comprehension of the concepts. Also, the concise writing style makes this book a very easy read


Who This Book Is For


This is a book for any experienced technologist who is new to the realm of Data Center virtualization wanting to find a way to get a head start in learning how to design, implement and manage a modern day datacenter virtualized using VMware's core infrastructure solutions. It could also act a comprehensive reference guide for Infrastructure Architects and System Administrators to aid them in their day to day activities. This book could easily find its place in reference materials used by professionals for VCP and VCAP certification exams. Keep in mind though that the book is not written to follow the blueprint of either of the exams.


What You Will Learn



  • Understand the architecture of the hypervisor and learn how to install deploy and configure ESXi hosts

  • Find out what forms a VMware Virtual Machine and also learn how to create and manage them

  • Familiarize yourself with the concepts of vSphere Storage and learn how to present and manage storage in a vSphere environment

  • Create and manage software switching constructs such as the vNetwork Standard Switch and vNetwork Distributed Switches

  • Monitor the performance of a vSphere environment using tools such as the vCenter Performance Graphs and 'esxtop'

  • Manage SSL certificates in a vSphere environment

  • Upgrade and patch a vSphere environment using vSphere Update Manager


In Detail


Computer virtualization is a method to enable the running of multiple application workloads on a machine to achieve efficient utilization and reduce the number of physical machines in a data center. This has now become the foundation of many modern day data centres. What began as a technology to virtualize x86 architecture has now grown beyond the limits of a server's hardware and into the realm of storage and network virtualization. VMware is currently the market leader in developing data center virtualization solutions.


This book goes into the details of designing and implementing VMware solutions that form the foundation of a VMware infrastructure.


The book begins by introducing you to the concepts of server virtualization followed by the architecture of VMware's hypervisor - ESXi and then by its installation and configuration. You then learn what is required to manage a vSphere environment and configure advanced management capabilities of vCenter. Next you are taken through topics on vSphere Networking, Storage, ESXi Clustering, Resource Management and Virtual Machine Management. You will then be introduced to SSL Certificate Management and its use in a vSphere environment. Finally, you will learn about the lifecycle management of a vSphere environment by effectively monitoring, patching and upgrading vSphere components using Update Manager.


By the end of the book, you will know how to use VMware's vSphere suite of components to lay the foundation of a modern day virtual infrastructure.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

奠定使用VMware vSphere 6進行數據中心虛擬化的基礎,並加強對其的理解。

關於本書:
- 學習如何實現服務器虛擬化,以及如何使用VMware的產品和解決方案構建虛擬基礎設施。
- 設計創建可擴展和響應的虛擬化平台,用於托管企業的虛擬機器工作負載。管理虛擬基礎設施的計算、網絡和存儲資源。
- 相關的概念圖、流程圖和屏幕截圖有助於深入理解概念。此外,簡潔的寫作風格使本書易於閱讀。

本書適合對數據中心虛擬化領域新手的有經驗技術人員,他們希望找到一種方法來提前學習如何設計、實施和管理使用VMware核心基礎設施解決方案的現代數據中心虛擬化。對於基礎架構架構師和系統管理員來說,本書也可以作為全面的參考指南,幫助他們日常工作。本書也可以作為專業人士參加VCP和VCAP認證考試時使用的參考資料。請注意,本書並不是按照這兩個考試的藍圖編寫的。

你將學到什麼:
- 瞭解虛擬機監控器的架構,並學習如何安裝、部署和配置ESXi主機。
- 了解VMware虛擬機的組成,並學習如何創建和管理它們。
- 熟悉vSphere存儲的概念,並學習如何在vSphere環境中呈現和管理存儲。
- 創建和管理軟件交換結構,如vNetwork標準交換和vNetwork分佈式交換。
- 使用工具(如vCenter性能圖表和'esxtop')監控vSphere環境的性能。
- 在vSphere環境中管理SSL證書。
- 使用vSphere Update Manager升級和修補vSphere環境。

詳細內容:
計算機虛擬化是一種方法,可以在一台機器上運行多個應用工作負載,以實現高效利用並減少數據中心中的物理機器數量。這現在已成為許多現代數據中心的基礎。最初用於虛擬化x86架構的技術現在已超越了服務器硬件的限制,擴展到存儲和網絡虛擬化的領域。VMware目前是開發數據中心虛擬化解決方案的市場領導者。

本書詳細介紹了設計和實施VMware解決方案,作為VMware基礎設施的基礎。

本書首先介紹了服務器虛擬化的概念,然後介紹了VMware的虛擬機監控器ESXi的架構,並介紹了其安裝和配置。然後,您將了解管理vSphere環境所需的內容,並配置vCenter的高級管理功能。接下來,您將學習有關vSphere網絡、存儲、ESXi集群、資源管理和虛擬機管理的主題。然後,您將介紹SSL證書管理及其在vSphere環境中的使用。最後,您將通過有效監控、修補和升級vSphere組件來學習vSphere環境的生命周期管理,使用Update Manager。

通過閱讀本書,您將了解如何使用VMware的vSphere套件組件為現代虛擬基礎設施奠定基礎。
