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:
