This e-book is destined to every VMware fan and/or IT professional and enthusiast.
This Free E-book describes the setup of Portable Lab to run nested ESXi hosts with nested VMs, shared storage, virtual networking etc… This is no mean to be a perfect, without errors, guide. But it’s a guide which is available for Free, as is. And it is a detailed, step-by-step guide. There aren’t many around. I’ll try to update this e-book as the VMware products evolve….
Almost everyone has one powerful machine, PC, at home to work with, but not everyone can afford to buy 2 white boxes or small servers PLUS a NAS box which does shared hosting. And then you still need 4th box to access all this.
While people run mostly their physical labs at home with whiteboxes, real servers, real NAS and/or SAN boxes, there is still place for a lab designed to run in VMware Workstation. An ultimate VMware vSphere lab running in VMware Workstation with nested ESXi servers and few cloned VMs. That’s quite a challenge to design it and built it.
Sure, physical lab gets better performance, but portable lab is… portable. You can take it with you while traveling, while on the boat, or train.
There are several possibilities for the design, especially for “shared storage” where the nested VMs live (the second level nested VMs)…. I will try to save as much on the storage space here. There are many different ways on how to design that part also.
To make it easier to build, not many guides are available which walks you step-by-step, especially when it comes to the network design and also to get the best available “tweaks” to save every single gigabit of storage, since this solution must obviously run on SSD storage.
Scaling Storage for VMware Virtualized Environments
Virtualization requires storage to scale, and the easiest way to scale is by using a building block approach to adding performance and capacity.
Traditional storage systems designed before the advent of virtualization are difficult to administer and scale as an enterprise’s virtualization storage needs change. TintriVM store and Tintri Global Center offer IT organizations the best choice for building and scaling virtualized environments. VMstore is the industry’s leading storage solution designed for virtualized environments, and Tintri Global Center adds the visibility and control to enable all VMstore systems to function as one. This winning combination of intelligent storage and deep insight makes Tintri the best choice for simply and predictably scaling storage in virtualized environments.
Building a Home Lab for VMware vSphere 6.0
Learn how to (relatively) inexpensively setup a simulated lab environment using the latest version of VMware.
This paper will discuss how to (relatively) inexpensively setup a simulated lab environment using VMware (the latest version). This white paper is broken down into three major sections; the first and most detailed is about the hardware required, the second is about the VMware Workstation configuration, and the third is about installing vSphere (ESXi) 6.0 and Virtual Center (VC).
Deploying IBM® Storwize® V7000 in VMware Environments
IBM® System Storage® virtualization technologies enable clients to virtualize more systems, faster and with less storage than traditional legacy storage architectures.
This paper provides insight into the value proposition of the IBM® Storwize® V7000 for a VMware environment to increase the storage utilization, availability and overall reduction of costs. It outlines a plan for the configuration, setup, and management of the environment.
