My former colleague Emad Benjamin at VMware has just published a new book on running Java on vSphere. When I was still there, I had the opportunity to review the Chapter 5 of his book.
As many of you know, Emad is a well-known expert on this subject who has spoken at various events like VMworld and helped numerous customers. You can buy his book at Amazon or from publisher directly. Remember to bring it to next year’s VMworld for his autograph.:-)
Lost VMs or Containers? Too Many Consoles? Too Slow GUI? Time to learn how to "Google" and manage your VMware and clouds in a fast and secure HTML5 App.
This book is the culmination of seven years of experience in running Java on VMware vSphere, both at VMware and at many of VMware’s customer sites. In fact, many of VMware’s customers run business critical enterprise Java applications on VMware vSphere where they have achieved better TCO and SLAs. This book covers high level architecture and implementation details, such as design and sizing, high-availability designs, automation of deployments, best practices, tuning, and troubleshooting techniques of enterprise Java applications on VMware.
