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!
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.
The book is clearly written, a special emphasis has been made on making it understandable even for professionals like me who use vSphere daily yet do not manage huge production environments. The book goes to great lengths to explain all possible scenarios and I found answers to all my questions. Not only sections cover HOW the technology works, but the authors go as far as explaining the way the algorithms are working, which will satisfy the curiosity of everyone.
Finally, as a cherry on top of the cake, the graphs and workflows are done with great taste and are pleasant to look at (The DPM throttle one is great!). Kindle owners such as me may find them a bit dull on grayscale compared to what I've seen of the color printed version on Duncan Epping's blog.
A great, concise and useful technical book, that every virtualization administrator/architect should own.
The following information about each subject was covered:
- Fault Domain Manager (FDM)
- HOSTD Agent
- Host Failure Response
- Host Isolation Response
- Admission Control
- DRS Levels
- vMotion Changes
- Reservation Behavier
- DRS Migration Thresholds
- Key Features
- Recommended SDRS Settings for storage type
- Storage vMotion changes
- SDRS Thresholds
Great Resource guide that I keep on my desk bookshelf.
Thanks for the book and the blogs,

Excellent book for deep diving into ESXi cluster inner-workings. I learned a lot about how the services work together from reading this book.Published 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
Good read on Clustering, but doesn't compare to hands on real like experience with VMware and Clustering. I still reference it sometimes though.Published on January 25, 2014 by jabbadehut60
