Ajit Pratap Kundan
Enhance your virtualization skills by mastering storage and network virtualization with automation across different CloudsAbout This Book * Migrate and build your applications in Hybrid Cloud with VMware Cross Cloud components and services * Gain in-depth configuration insights of VMware Cross Cloud architecture * Learn to migrate applications from VMware to AWS and IBM Cloud Who This Book Is For This book is for administrators, Cloud architects and network engineers who want to globalize their infrastructure using VMware and AWS services. An initial setup of workloads and data center is beneficial.What You Will Learn * Install and configure the Cloud foundation with Cross-Cloud services * Configure vSphere high availability with the vCenter redundancy setup * Architect and configure VMware with AWS Cloud * Deploy VMware components in IBM Soft Layer * Extend your DR setup with VMware to consume DRaaS * Design and configure software-defined networking * Implement compliance regulations to fix violations In Detail Over the past two decades, VMware vSphere has been known as the most trusted and reliable virtualization platform. VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture shows you how to design and configure Cross Cloud Architecture by leveraging VMware Cloud Foundation and vRealize Suite with various use cases across private, public, and hybrid Cloud. This book takes you through everything from the basic understanding of virtualization to advanced aspects of storage and network virtualization, clustering, automation, and management. This book will be your guide to designing all aspects of Cloud. We start with challenges faced by a traditional data centre, define problem statements for you, and then brief you with respective solutions. Moving on, all kinds of virtualization and Cloud offerings from AWS and IBM Soft Layer will be introduced and discussed in detail. Next, you will learn to design IT infrastructure for new and existing applications with a combination of the Cloud foundation, vRealize Suite, and vSphere enabled with VSAN and NSX. Furthermore, you will learn to design and configure high availability, disaster recovery, and apply an appropriate compliance matrix. Toward the end of the book, you will learn to calculate the TCO/ROI along with the VMware products packaging and licensing in detail.
