Book Review: IT Architect: Foundation in the Art of Infrastructure Design

IT Architect: Foundation in the Art of Infrastructure Design is well written and an easy read. I read it cover to cover over a couple nights. I found myself marking multiple pages to refer back to. It is packed with a great deal of useful information for both the seasoned Architect and those who are looking to gain a bit more insight on the process for creating a high quality design. The book focuses on enterprise class, but the design process can easily be (and should be) applied to any size or type of datacenter design.

Foundation in the Art of Infrastructure Design On the Way!

I have been looking forward to this book being released ever since I got a peak at the draft at VMworld last year. Just ordered a copy and I should have it by Friday!!! Based on what I saw back in August, this book will likely become the go to resource for folks preparing for the VMware advanced design exams or working to successfully prepare and defend a VCDX design.

ESXi Host 3 NIC Connectivity Design

This post was inspired by a cool conversation with @Emad_Younis at VMware PEX about ESXi network design using a limited number of NICs. Emad is working towards his VCDX so we worked through the solution design applying the same design methodology used when creating a VCDX design.
