I’ve read past versions of this document and you can really learn a lot. It’s a quick read and it can help you think through many of your assumptions and design choices. It contains four chapters, which cover:
- Chapter 1, “Hardware for Use with VMware vSphere,” provides guidance on selecting hardware for use with vSphere.
- Chapter 2, “ESXi and Virtual Machines,” provides guidance regarding VMware ESXi™ software and the virtual machines that run in it.
- Chapter 3, “Guest Operating Systems,” provides guidance regarding the guest operating systems running in vSphere virtual machines.
- Chapter 4, “Virtual Infrastructure Management,” provides guidance regarding infrastructure management best practices.
