From the author of the vSphere Clustering Deep Dive series - The VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive is a guide to building consistent high-performing ESXi hosts. A book that people can't put down. Written for administrators, architects, consultants, aspiring VCDX-es and people eager to learn more about the elements that control the behavior of CPU, memory, storage and network resources. This book shows that we can fundamentally and materially improve the systems we're building. We can make the currently running ones consistently faster by deeply understanding and optimizing our systems. The reality is that specifics of the infrastructure matter. Details matter. Especially for distributed platforms which abstract resource layers, such as NSX and vSAN. Knowing your systems inside and out is the only way to be sure you've properly handled those details. It's about having a passion for these details. It's about loving the systems we build. It's about understanding them end-to-end. This book explains the concepts and mechanisms behind the physical resource components and the VMkernel resource schedulers, which enables you to: Optimize your workload for current and future Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) systems. Discover how vSphere Balanced Power Management takes advantage of the CPU Turbo Boost functionality, and why High Performance does not. How the 3-DIMMs per Channel configuration results in a 10-20% performance drop. How TLB works and why it is bad to disable large pages in virtualized environments. Why 3D XPoint is perfect for the vSAN caching tier. What queues are and where they live inside the end-to-end storage data paths. Tune VMkernel components to optimize performance for VXLAN network traffic and NFV environments. Why Intel's Data Plane Development Kit significantly boosts packet processing performance.

Virtualizing and Tuning Large-Scale Java Platforms Technical best practices and real-world tips for optimizing enterprise Java applications on VMware vSphere® Enterprises no longer ask, “Can Java be virtualized”? Today, they ask, “Just how large can we scale virtualized Java application platforms, and just how efficiently can we tune them?” Now, the leading expert on Java virtualization answers these questions, offering detailed technical information you can apply in any production or QA/test environment. Emad Benjamin has spent nine years virtualizing VMware’s own enterprise Java applications and working with nearly 300 leading VMware customers on projects of all types and sizes—from 100 JVMs to 10,000+, with heaps from 1GB to 360GB, and including massive big-data applications built on clustered JVMs. Reflecting all this experience, he shows you how to successfully size and tune any Java workload. This reference and performance “cookbook” identifies high-value optimization opportunities that apply to physical environments, virtual environments, or both. You learn how to rationalize and scale existing Java infrastructure, modernize architecture for new applications, and systematically benchmark and improve every aspect of virtualized Java performance. Throughout, Benjamin offers real performance studies, specific advice, and “from-the-trenches” insights into monitoring and troubleshooting. Coverage includes --Performance issues associated with large-scale Java platforms, including consolidation, elasticity, and flexibility --Technical considerations arising from theoretical and practical limits of Java platforms --Building horizontal in-memory databases with VMware vFabric SQLFire to improve scalability and response times --Tuning large-scale Java using throughput/parallel GC and Concurrent Mark and Sweep (CMS) techniques --Designing and sizing a new virtualized Java environment --Designing and sizing new large-scale Java platforms when migrating from physical to virtualized deployments --Designing and sizing large-scale Java platforms for latency-sensitive in-memory databases --Real-world performance studies: SQLFire vs. RDBMS, Spring-based Java web apps, vFabric SpringTrader, application tiers, data tiers, and more --Performance differences between ESXi3, 4.1, and 5 --Best-practice considerations for each type of workload: architecture, performance, design, sizing, and high availability --Identifying bottlenecks in the load balancer, web server, Java application server, or DB Server tiers --Advanced vSphere Java performance troubleshooting with esxtop --Performance FAQs: answers to specific questions enterprise customers have asked

Complete Hands-On Help for Securing VMware vSphere and Virtual Infrastructure by Edward Haletky, Author of the Best Selling Book on VMware, VMware ESX Server in the Enterprise As VMware has become increasingly ubiquitous in the enterprise, IT professionals have become increasingly concerned about securing it. Now, for the first time, leading VMware expert Edward Haletky brings together comprehensive guidance for identifying and mitigating virtualization-related security threats on all VMware platforms, including the new cloud computing platform, vSphere. This book reflects the same hands-on approach that made Haletky’s VMware ESX Server in the Enterprise so popular with working professionals. Haletky doesn’t just reveal where you might be vulnerable; he tells you exactly what to do and how to reconfigure your infrastructure to address the problem. VMware vSphere and Virtual Infrastructure Security begins by reviewing basic server vulnerabilities and explaining how security differs on VMware virtual servers and related products. Next, Haletky drills deep into the key components of a VMware installation, identifying both real and theoretical exploits, and introducing effective countermeasures. Coverage includes • Viewing virtualization from the attacker’s perspective, and understanding the new security problems it can introduce • Discovering which security threats the vmkernel does (and doesn’t) address • Learning how VMsafe enables third-party security tools to access the vmkernel API • Understanding the security implications of VMI, paravirtualization, and VMware Tools • Securing virtualized storage: authentication, disk encryption, virtual storage networks, isolation, and more • Protecting clustered virtual environments that use VMware High Availability, Dynamic Resource Scheduling, Fault Tolerance, vMotion, and Storage vMotion • Securing the deployment and management of virtual machines across the network • Mitigating risks associated with backup, performance management, and other day-to-day operations • Using multiple security zones and other advanced virtual network techniques • Securing Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) • Auditing virtual infrastructure, and conducting forensic investigations after a possible breach informit.com/ph www.Astroarch.com
