This week-end I started to read the book and from the first chapter titled An Introduction to Designing VMware Environments, extreme valuable information are given out.
Whenever you start designing a VMware vSphere environment you need to pay attention to three things. The authors call them facets. There are the Technical, the Operational and the Organizational facets. These are the What, the Who and the How.
All three facets are tied up with the Functional Requirements. As the authors say, Functional requirements are important because they answer the question: “What things should this design do”
Read here a preview of the first chapter. I hope that will give you the envy to buy the book. It is worth the money for any vAdmin out there concerned by the design of VMware environments. In the mean time I return to my reading 🙂
