As part of the highly acclaimed Mastering
series from Sybex, this book offers a comprehensive look at VMware vSphere 4, how to implement it, and how to make the most of what it offers.
- Shows administrators how to use VMware to realize significant savings in hardware costs while still providing adequate "servers" for their users
- Demonstrates how to partition a physical server into several virtual machines, reducing the overall server footprint within the operations center
- Explains how VMware subsumes a network to centralize and simplify its management, thus alleviating the effects of "virtual server sprawl"
Now that virtualization is a key cost-saving strategy, Mastering VMware vSphere 4 is the strategic guide you need to maximize the opportunities.
