Book Description

Now fully updated: The authoritative, comprehensive guide to 6 storage implementation and management

Effective virtualization storage planning and management has become crucial—but it can be extremely complex. Now, ’s leading storage expert thoroughly demystifies the “black box” of vSphere 6 storage and provides illustrated, step-by-step procedures for performing every key task associated with it. Mostafa Khalil presents techniques based on years of personal experience helping customers storage in their vSphere production environments. Drawing on more experience than anyone else in the field, he combines expert guidelines, insights for better architectural design, best practices for planning and management, common configuration details, and deep dives into both vSphere and third-party storage. Storage Design and Implementation in vSphere 6, Second Edition will give you the deep understanding you need to make better upfront storage decisions, quickly solve problems if they arise, and keep them from occurring in the first place.

Coverage includes

  • Planning and implementing Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI storage in vSphere virtualized environments
