Every year, datacenter managers must deliver more services faster, with greater flexibility. They must efficiently handle soaring amounts of data, and unprecedented levels of complexity. And they must do all this with lower budgets and fewer resources. Datacenter virtualization with VMware’s vSphere® 5 is the best way to achieve these goals and to accelerate your transition to cloud services. VMware vSphere® 5: Building a Virtual Datacenter brings together all the practical knowledge you need to evaluate, plan, implement, and manage vSphere 5 in your datacenter environment. Top datacenter virtualization consultants Eric Maillé and René-François Mennecier begin by introducing vSphere 5 from the viewpoint of the datacenter manager and professional. They present essential definitions, advantages, and functions; review vSphere 5’s architecture; and introduce core components such as vCenter Server and ESXi 5.0. Next, Maillé and Mennecier turn to implementation, presenting detailed examples, schemas, and best practices drawn from their extensive experience. They share practical insights into budgeting, scheduling, and planning; choosing the right architecture; and integrating vSphere with existing datacenter elements, including servers, storage, clusters, network infrastructure, and business continuity plans. They conclude with a start-to-finish case study: a datacenter virtualization project designed to support specific business objectives. Coverage includes • Assessing the potential benefits of datacenter virtualization in your environment • Organizing and managing a smooth migration to the virtualized datacenter • Anticipating specific challenges and risks associated with datacenter virtualization • Making tradeoffs to optimize stability, elasticity, scalability, and cost • Choosing the best installation/configuration options for your environment • Effectively linking vSphere 5 virtualization to existing datacenter elements • Driving more value from vSphere 5’s powerful new datacenter features • Providing storage to efficiently support your hosted VMs, now and in the future • Managing limited memory and other server constraints • Leveraging new options for service continuity and high availability • Using backup architecture as a lever to reduce costs

Virtualization and related technologies like hypervisors, which create virtual machines on a single hardware machine, and containers (also known as zones), which create virtual operating systems running on a single operating system, are a totally new area for many system administrators. Oracle® Solaris™ 10 System Virtualization Essentials provides an accessible introduction to computer virtualization, specifically the system virtualization technologies that use the Oracle Solaris or OpenSolaris operating systems. This accessible guide covers the key concepts system administrators need to understand and explains how to Use Dynamic Domains to maximize workload isolation on Sun SPARC systems Use Oracle VM Server for SPARC to deploy different Oracle Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris environments on SPARC CMT (chip multithreading) systems Use Oracle VM Server for x86 or xVM hypervisor to deploy a server with heterogeneous operating systems Use Oracle VM VirtualBox to develop and test software in heterogeneous environments Use Oracle Solaris Containers to maximize efficiency and scalability of workloads Use Oracle Solaris Containers to migrate Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 workloads to new hardware systems Mix virtualization technologies to maximize workload density Starting with a discussion of system virtualization in general terms—the needs of consolidation, the benefits of virtualization, and a description of the most common types of computer virtualization—this book also covers many of the concepts, features, and methods shared by many implementations of system virtualization. Oracle’s computer virtualization technologies that are directly related to the Oracle Solaris OS are described in detail along with a discussion of the factors that should be considered when choosing a virtualization technology. Finally, several examples of these technologies and an overview of virtualization management software are provided, as well as a history of virtualization.
