The complete vCAT printed reference: knowledge, tools, and validated designs for building high-value vCloud® solutions


The vCloud Architecture Toolkit (vCAT) brings together validated designs, tools, and knowledge for architecting, implementing, operating, and consuming modern vCloud infrastructure based on the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).


vCAT has already helped hundreds of VMware customers succeed with vCloud. Now, pioneering VMware architect John Arrasjid has integrated essential vCAT information into a definitive printed guide, adding even more context and examples for successful planning and deployment. To do so, Arrasjid has distilled contributions from more than 100 VMware architects, consultants, administrators, engineers, project managers, and other technical leaders.


VMware vCloud Architecture Toolkit (vCAT) is your complete roadmap for using virtualization to simplify data centers and related IT infrastructure. You’ll find up-to-the-minute, field-proven insights for addressing a wide spectrum of challenges–from availability to interoperability, security to business continuity.


Coverage includes


  • vCAT design guidelines and patterns for efficiently architecting, operating, and consuming VMware cloud computing solutions
  • Software-defined datacenter services for storage, networking, security, and availability
  • People, process, and technology issues associated with effective vCloud operation  and maintenance
  • Efficient service consumption: consumption models, service catalogs, vApps, and service provider interactions
  • Workflows to coordinate and automate task sequences, which extend beyond vCloud
  • VMware vCloud Director® Server Resource Kit software tools
  • Advanced “cloud bursting” and autoscaling techniques to dynamically leverage additional computing resources
  • Planning and management of capacity, security, compliance, and disaster recovery

5.0 von 5 Sternen From a great intro to vCloud to how to do nearly everything 6. September 2013
Von Charles Buege - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
VMware vCloud Architecture Toolkit (vCAT) is one of the most fascinating books I've been able to get my hands on in a long time. One of the technologies that has fascinated me for a long time has been VMware's vCloud. This book is a great introduction and an explanation of all of the different types of technologies that VMware has, and, beyond that, gives you a VERY long list of what topics, items, and questions that you want to ask your users and yourself in order to get the most effective and promising vCloud solution implemented.

The chapter by chapter breakdown of the book gives you a great summary of each of the different categories that you would want to learn about (Software tools, Implementation examples, etc.) and also gives you nice, simple to read checklists for how to take care of each of several different tasks.

If you want to start working with vCloud but are not sure where to start, this book isn't only a great place to start, it'll get you through a large part of the process. I highly recommend this - get it today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must have for SDDC and Cloud deployments 24. Mai 2014
Von Mark A. Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I began reading this just a few days ago and am finding it well written, organized and a must have for SDDC and Cloud deployment. Understanding that the VMware vCloud product line is a suite of components that can be assembled to deploy a Cloud solution to meet the needs of any customer whether they want to deliver IaaS, PaaS, Saas, etc is essential. Depending on what one needs be it isolation for multiple tenants or departments, self service portal, governance, and security there are a plethora of component items to meet each need.
