VMware vSphere 5.1 Clustering Deepdive is the follow-up to best seller vSphere 5.0 Clustering Deepdive and zooms in on three key components of every VMware based infrastructure and. It provides the knowledge and expertise needed to create a cloud infrastructure based on the solid foundation of vSphere HA, vSphere DRS and vSphere Storage DRS. It explains the concepts and mechanisms behind HA, DRS and Storage DRS which will enable you to make well educated decisions. Besides a brand new stretched cluster use case section it includes a fully rewritten Storage DRS section, and new details on both vSphere HA and vSphere DRS.
This book will take you in to the trenches of HA, DRS and Storage DRS and will give you the tools to understand and implement e.g. HA admission control policies, DRS resource pools, Datastore Clusters and resource allocation settings. Each section contains basic design principles that can be used for designing, implementing or improving VMware infrastructures.
