A virtual machine (VM) is a software implementation of a machine (a computer) that executes programs like a physical machine. vSphere has clusters of virtual machines that are all interconnected. Virtualization changes everything. Virtual machines have far more functionality than physical servers and are capable of incredible things. Virtual machines should not be treated and administered exactly like physical servers. It is imperative that the administrators know how to correctly create and administer virtual machines.
vSphere Virtual Machine Management depicts how to create a virtual machine step-by-step using multiple creation methods. In this book, you will learn how to develop virtual machine performance, resource allocation, and performance monitoring in detail. You will also be introduced to load balancing and virtual machine availability concepts and configurations.
This book looks at the different ways to create virtual machines, and breaks down the many different configuration options that are available. It will take you through a number of step-by-step instructions that will help you understand virtual machine features and how to configure them.
Not only will you learn how to create and configure virtual machines, but you will also be introduced to many of the advanced configuration options that are available in vSphere. We will also take a look at virtual machine performance, resource allocation options, and how to monitor virtual machines. If your environment uses multi-tiered applications, you will discover why vApp is the perfect container for multi-tiered applications. How to take advantage of virtual machine availability and load balancing will also be discussed.
This book follows a step-by-step tutorial approach with some real-world scenarios that vSphere businesses will be required to overcome every day. This book also discusses creating and configuring virtual machines and also covers monitoring virtual machine performance and resource allocation options.
Who this book is for
This book is for VMware administrators who want to build their knowledge of virtual machine administration and configuration. It’s assumed that you have some experience with virtualization administration and vSphere.
