Book Description

2 Dec 2010
VMware vSphere 4.1 HA and DRS Technical Deepdive zooms in on two 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 VMware HA and DRS cluster, but even more important explains the concepts and mechanisms behind HA and DRS which will enable you to make well educated decisions. This book will take you in to the trenches of HA and DRS and will give you the tools to understand and implement e.g. HA admission control policies, DRS resource pools and host affinity rules. On top of that each section contains basic design principles that can be used for designing, implementing or improving VMware infrastructures. 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

5.0 out of 5 stars So you think you know HA and DRS... 14 Mar 2011
well unless you've read this book then you probably dont know as much as you think. Duncan and Frank have done an excellant job diving into the inner workings of HA and DRS. The first 10 chapters refer to High Availability with the remaining 9 solely for DRS - That's a lot of chapters. The book is well written with excellant diagrams to visually represent the information. Chances are you take HA and DRS for granted as you simply enable it out of the box and it just works. If you are really interested in knowing how they really work to better prepare yourself then read this book.

I'm now off to hassel my boss to purchase another blade chassis so we can split our primary cluster nodes across two chassis :)

Gives a good account to get one started and handy to have for reference but the best way to learn stuff will always be 'hands on'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, perfect technical level. 21 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent level of technical detail is presented here. This book gives you exactly what you need to have a true understanding of how the features described really work.

More than this it also provides real world advice on what to change and what not to change.

The design considerations presented regarding distribution of multiple clusters across multiple blade chassis was also very insightful.

I would recommend this title to anybody interested in really understanding the details of HA and DRS.
