Mastering VMware vSphere 6.7Â is what you need to stay up-to-date on VMware's industry-leading software for the virtualized datacenter.
From the author of the vSphere Clustering Deep Dive series -
The VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive is a guide to building consistent high-performing ESXi hosts. A book that people canât put down. Written for administrators, architects, consultants, aspiring VCDX-es and people eager to learn more about the elements that control the behavior of CPU, memory, storage and network resources.
This book shows that we can fundamentally and materially improve the systems weâre building. We can make the currently running ones consistently faster by deeply understanding and optimizing our systems.
The reality is that specifics of the infrastructure matter. Details matter. Especially for distributed platforms which abstract resource layers, such as NSX and vSAN. Knowing your systems inside and out is the only way to be sure youâve properly handled those details. Itâs about having a passion for these details. Itâs about loving the systems we build. Itâs about understanding them end-to-end.
This book explains the concepts and mechanisms behind the physical resource components and the VMkernel resource schedulers, which enables you to:

Design a virtualized data center with VMware vSphere 6.7
VMware is the industry leader in data center virtualization. The vSphere 6.x suite of products provides a robust and resilient platform to virtualize server and application workloads.
This book uses proven infrastructure design principles and applies them to VMware vSphere 6.7 virtual data center design through short and focused recipes on each design aspect. The second edition of this book focused on vSphere 6.0. vSphere features released since then necessitate an updated design guide, which includes recipes for upgrading to 6.7, vCenter HA; operational improvements; cutting-edge, high-performance storage access such as RDMA and Pmem; security features such as encrypted vMotion and VM-level encryption; Proactive HA; HA Orchestrated Restart; Predictive DRS; and more.
By the end of the book, you will be able to achieve enhanced compute, storage, network, and management capabilities for your virtual data center.
If you are an administrator or consultant interested in designing virtualized data center environments using VMware vSphere 6.x (or previous versions of vSphere and the supporting components), this book is for you.
With virtualization, a single server can host dozens or hundreds of virtual machines running a variety of operating systems, and even hook them together in a virtual network or cloud infrastructure. This practical guide shows you how to create a virtual system using the VMware VSphere environment.Â You'll find all the information you need to understand, design, and deploy oneâwithout getting overwhelmed with technical detail. And once youâre up and running, this book is the perfect reference for maintenance and troubleshooting issues.
