This book is an excellent primer for anyone who is tasked with understanding the fundamentals of networking in a VMware infrastructure. I got a great deal out of this book and I personally keep it for reference material.
Here is a synopsis from the authors:
” The content starts with a networking primer to build a foundation for the reader (think CCNA level knowledge), then starts coupling these concepts with how a VMware virtualized data center is put together, and finally walks step-by-step through real working vSphere network configurations that meet a variety of use cases.
By the end, you should be able to approach and chat with your network team using lingo they know and understand, while also being able to build out some highly available and tuned vSphere networks within a variety of hardware types, such as converged infrastructure, rackmount, NFS, iSCSI, 1GbE, and 10GbE to name a few. The content is geared towards someone who has zero experience with networking to help set a level playing field.”
