Book Description

July 1 2011
** Black & White edition ** VMware vSphere 5 Clustering Technical Deepdive zooms in on three key components of every VMware based infrastructure and is by no means a "how to" guide. It covers the basic steps needed to create a vSphere HA and vSphere DRS cluster and to implement vSphere Storage DRS. Even more important, it explains the concepts and mechanisms behind HA, DRS and Storage DRS which will enable you to make well educated decisions. 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. On top of that each section contains basic design principles that can be used for designing, implementing or improving VMware infrastructures and fundamental supporting features like (Storage) vMotion, Storage I/O Control and much more are described in detail for the very first time. This book is also the ultimate guide to be prepared for any HA, DRS or Storage DRS related question or case study that might be presented during VMware VCDX, VCP and or VCAP exams. Coverage includes: HA node types HA isolation detection and response HA admission control VM Monitoring HA and DRS integration DRS imbalance algorithm Resource Pools Impact of reservations and limits CPU Resource Scheduling Memory Scheduler DPM Datastore Clusters Storage DRS algorithm Influencing SDRS recommendations Be prepared to dive deep.

This book lives up to its title - this is really a technical deepdive on Clustering, You will not be disappointed. The authors do a great job of explaining terms and concepts - they diagrams are also very helpful. There is so much in this book that I will likely read it another couple of times.

This is a must buy for your vSphere library. Looking forward to reading more from the authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! July 16 2011
By @drakpz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for technical, precise and comprehensive information about HA, DRS, and Storage DRS, well... This is the book for you. Frank and Duncan use a linear and fluent writing style, with excellent examples and real world scenarios that give you a perfect understanding of the inner logic of all the involved components. Great info on the new features in v5, and how and why some things have radically evolved (e.g. HA).
Loaded with precious tips and detailed information, it's a must have wether you're a clustering newbie or a seasoned vAdmin.
Oh, and what about the money? It's weeeeell worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have addition to your tech library July 16 2011
By Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Following on from their vSphere 4. HA/DRS deepdive book Duncan and Frank have followed up with this new book which covers some of the greatest new features VMware have added to or improved in vSphere 5.

I have just finished the kindle of this book and I must say I am very impressed at the way that it is laid out, they topics covered and the level of technical information. The level of information they were able to provide goes beyond what you will ever find in any whitepaper. The use of diagrams illustrate the concepts in a way that words sometimes struggle to. This has always been one of Franks strengths and this book is no exception. I firmly believe that you should consider the colour version of the book as the illustrations have maximum effect, and yes it's worth it.

In this book you'll find the usual suspects such as HA, DRS and DPM but in addition they authors have also included some additional features such as Storage DRS, Storage IO Control, vMotion, Storage vMotion and Resource Entitlements.

I have made a bunch of notes and bookmarks during my first pass of this book. I will no doubt return in a week or so for another read.

A super book and I really recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the concepts in this book, you WONT find better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have - Worth Its Weight In Gold Aug. 3 2011
By slaclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In case the other raving reviews were not sufficient I will backup what the others have said. Written in the same clarity and technical depth as the 4.1 HA/DRS book, this book is an absolute must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for vSphere 5 Administrators May 18 2012
By tkuznia - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a great resource for any vSphere 5 Administrators. It mainly covers 3 major functions of vSphere 5, including HA, DRS and the new Storage DRS. The book does a great job of explaining not only the new functionality in-depth, but also best practices of how these should be used in your virtual environment. There is no better resource in explaining clustering as it relates to ESXi clusters.

The following information about each subject was covered:
- Fault Domain Manager (FDM)
- HOSTD Agent
- Host Failure Response
- Host Isolation Response
- Admission Control

- DRS Levels
- vMotion Changes
- Reservation Behavier
- DRS Migration Thresholds
- Affinity/Anti-Affinity

- Key Features
- Constraints
- Recommended SDRS Settings for storage type
- Storage vMotion changes
- SDRS Thresholds

Great Resource guide that I keep on my desk bookshelf.
