If I hadn't stumbled upon this during the giveaway, it still would've been well worth the money.

If you're looking for technical, precise and comprehensive information about HA, DRS, and Storage DRS, well... This is the book for you. Frank and Duncan use a linear and fluent writing style, with excellent examples and real world scenarios that give you a perfect understanding of the inner logic of all the involved components. Great info on the new features in v5, and how and why some things have radically evolved (e.g. HA).
Loaded with precious tips and detailed information, it's a must have wether you're a clustering newbie or a seasoned vAdmin.
Oh, and what about the money? It's weeeeell worth the price!

Following on from their vSphere 4. HA/DRS deepdive book Duncan and Frank have followed up with this new book which covers some of the greatest new features VMware have added to or improved in vSphere 5.

I have just finished the kindle of this book and I must say I am very impressed at the way that it is laid out, they topics covered and the level of technical information. The level of information they were able to provide goes beyond what you will ever find in any whitepaper. The use of diagrams illustrate the concepts in a way that words sometimes struggle to. This has always been one of Franks strengths and this book is no exception. I firmly believe that you should consider the colour version of the book as the illustrations have maximum effect, and yes it's worth it.

In this book you'll find the usual suspects such as HA, DRS and DPM but in addition they authors have also included some additional features such as Storage DRS, Storage IO Control, vMotion, Storage vMotion and Resource Entitlements.

I have made a bunch of notes and bookmarks during my first pass of this book. I will no doubt return in a week or so for another read.

A super book and I really recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the concepts in this book, you WONT find better.

In case the other raving reviews were not sufficient I will backup what the others have said. Written in the same clarity and technical depth as the 4.1 HA/DRS book, this book is an absolute must have.

This book has details on vSphere that I have not found elsewhere. I have read through all sections and found the detail in the book crucial reading for any vSphere Administrator. I recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for any vSphere 5 Administrators. It mainly covers 3 major functions of vSphere 5, including HA, DRS and the new Storage DRS. The book does a great job of explaining not only the new functionality in-depth, but also best practices of how these should be used in your virtual environment. There is no better resource in explaining clustering as it relates to ESXi clusters.

The following information about each subject was covered:
HA:
- Fault Domain Manager (FDM)
- HOSTD Agent
- Host Failure Response
- Host Isolation Response
- Admission Control

DRS:
- DRS Levels
- vMotion Changes
- EVC
- Reservation Behavier
- DRS Migration Thresholds
- Affinity/Anti-Affinity

SDRS:
- Key Features
- Constraints
- Recommended SDRS Settings for storage type
- VMFS5
- Storage vMotion changes
- SDRS Thresholds

Great Resource guide that I keep on my desk bookshelf.

The bar was set high with the VMware vSphere 4.1 HA and DRS Technical deepdive (Volume 1), and this book sets it even higher. If you are in any way working with vSphere 5, even indirectly, this is an essential book to own and read. It contains real world, plain English explanations of the inner workings of vSphere 5 clustering, including charts and diagrams that are impossible to find elsewhere. I have highlighted and flagged much of the information in this book, and find it an excellent desk reference. I also own the Kindle edition for when I'm out and about. The writing style is very open, and friendly, and easy to read.

There have been many changes to vSphere5 from the previous versions. This book combined with Duncan's previous book (HA and DRS Deepdive for vSphere 4) will keep even the most seasoned VMware Admin, Engineer, Consultant or IT person's interest. There is so much more to learn about this wonderful product we call vSphere. This is just the start of many publisings from various authors and without a doubt, this is a great start to get a grasp of the newly designed HA and Clustering in vS5!

Whether you are longing to know about the transition from AAM to FDM, best practices for DRS and DPM, or are just curious to know what those acronyms are this is a great book! The technical detail, practical advice, and comparative analysis throughout make this book one of the most thorough yet concise technical books available. You could easily pour through thousands of pages of pdfs and blogs to harness the information contained in this book so I highly recommend that you get this book.
