9780133854992: Essential Virtual San (VSAN): Administrator's Guide to VMware Virtual San (Vmware Press Technology)

Understand and implement VMware Virtual SAN: the heart of tomorrow’s Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC)

 

VMware’s breakthrough Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) initiative can help you virtualize your entire datacenter: compute, storage, networks, and associated services. Central to SDDC is VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN): a fully distributed storage architecture seamlessly integrated into the hypervisor and capable of scaling to meet any enterprise storage requirement.

 

Now, the leaders of VMware’s wildly popular Virtual SAN previews have written the first authoritative guide to this pivotal technology. You’ll learn what Virtual SAN is, exactly what it offers, how to implement it, and how to maximize its value.

 

Writing for administrators, consultants, and architects, Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping show how Virtual SAN implements both object-based storage and a policy platform that simplifies VM storage placement. You’ll learn how Virtual SAN and vSphere work together to dramatically improve resiliency, scale-out storage functionality, and control over QoS.

 

Both an up-to-the-minute reference and hands-on tutorial, Essential Virtual SAN uses realistic examples to demonstrate Virtual SAN’s most powerful capabilities. You’ll learn how to plan, architect, and deploy Virtual SAN successfully, avoid gotchas, and troubleshoot problems once you’re up and running.

 

Coverage includes

  • Understanding the key goals and concepts of Software-Defined Storage and Virtual SAN technology
  • Meeting physical and virtual requirements for safe Virtual SAN implementation
  • Installing and configuring Virtual SAN for your unique environment
  • Using Storage Policy Based Management to control availability, performance, and reliability

Product Description:

VMware's breakthrough Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) initiative will enable the virtualization of the entire data center: compute, storage, networks, and associated services. Central to SDDC is the new VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) storage product released with vSphere 5.5. In just two months after VSAN's announcement, 10,000+ VMware customers signed up to beta test it, and every VMworld preview session has been filled to the rafters.

 

The leaders of those wildly popular VMworld previews, Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping, have now written the first authoritative guide to VSAN technology. You'll learn what VSAN is, exactly what it offers you, how to implement it, and how to maximize the value it delivers.

 

Hogan and Epping show how VSAN implements object-based storage and a platform for VM storage policies that simplifies VM storage placement decisions. They explain how VSAN integrates with vSphere features such as vSphere HA, DRS and vMotion, providing greater resiliency, more scale-out storage functionality, and greater control over QoS.

 

Both an up-to-the-minute reference and hands-on tutorial, Essential Virtual SAN (VSAN) uses realistic new examples to demonstrate VSAN's most valuable new features. You'll learn how to plan, architect, and deploy VSAN successfully, avoid gotchas, and troubleshoot problems once you're up and running.
