The Definitive Guide to Planning, Implementing, Securing, Maintaining, and Troubleshooting VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3

This is the most comprehensive guide to planning for, implementing, securing, maintaining, monitoring, and troubleshooting VMware VI3 in any IT environment. Written by Eric Siebert, a veteran VMware system administrator and one of only 300 vExperts named by VMware in 2009, this book will help IT professionals make the best possible decisions about VMware every step of the way.

  • Monitoring your virtual environment, analyzing metrics, and proactively eliminating bottlenecks
  • Applying patches to fix bugs and security vulnerabilities without introducing problems caused by unexpected dependencies
  • Troubleshooting virtual environments: identifying and resolving specific problems, one step at a time
