VMware vSphere Review in the Works

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll start posting a multi-part review of VMware vSphere 4.

Because this is such a large product with so many different features, I’ve decided to break it into three or four sections. As the different parts go live on the site, the list below will be modified to link to the appropriate part of the review:

  1. Overview and installation
  2. Networking and storage
  3. High availability and business continuity
  4. Management and operations
  5. Summary and wrap-up

If there is anything in particular you’d like to see covered in the review, please note your interests by posting a comment to this article. I’ll do my best to accommodate all requests, but I can’t make any guarantees.

    This will be very helpful Scott. We just mapped out a plan to start the upgrade to vSphere 4 in two weeks. In that timeframe, I basically have to give myself a crash course on vSphere. It’s too bad your book doesn’t release until September.

    My biggest concern with the upgrade will be ways not to break your environment. We are going to live in a 3.5 and 4 environment for about a week.

    Thanks again, I’m looking forward to your review.

    Live upgrade/migration from ESX3.5/VI2.5 would be very interesting. Thanks!

    Please don’t overemphasize enterprises…most VMware bloggers are very biased toward this end of the spectrum.

    Great idea !

    I’d really like to hear about the new data backup & recovery feature in comparison to VCB and other solutions like BrightStor or Symantec for instance…

    Thank you in advance
