Many of you know Jonathan Frappier from his tireless work on the vBrownbag, community involvement and excellent blog. But did you know he is also an author, yes that’s right – he wrote a book called VMware vSphere Resource Management Essentials from Packt Publishing. It was release in February 2014.
Understand how ESXi manages resources
It’s a great book for people that are new to virtualization and for those that want to dive deeper on topics that they seldom touch. There is a lot of information jammed into this book, and it’s a quick read. You will find yourself referencing this resources many times.
This book covers the following area’s:
- Understanding vSphere System Requirements
- Assigning Resources to VMs
- Advanced Resource Management Features
- Automation and Monitoring Options
Jonathan touches on all the major topics from what is a vSphere host to automating resource management and PowerCLI basics. This book connect’s the dots for many who are interested in vSphere.
I would recommend getting a copy or two for colleagues at the office, and if you have not started on your virtualization journey, this would be a good book for your management level folks to read.
