The EMC VNX and VMware vSphere Techbook (this the reference text for any customers/partners/EMCers who use EMC VNX arrays with vSphere – which translates to a LOT of people) has been updated! It is downloadable – so click the link below. BTW, this is doc h8229 if you ever want to search by doc number. Thank YOU, Jeff Purcell (the primary author)!
For those of you who want it in hardcopy, you can purchase it from the Vervante EMC Techbook store here. It makes for a great nerd coffee table book :-)
(personally, I wouldn’t buy the hardcopy – we’re already working on the next rev – to capture the various things that are targeted for future vSphere revs – like autorestore as part of the SATP when the RR PSP is used – yeah!)
Late last year (Nov 21st –my birthday!) , the EMC Symmetrix techbook for vSphere also was updated – mandatory for any folks using EMC VMAX/VMAXe arrays with vSphere (also many, many folks) – BTW, this is doc h2529 if you ever want to search by doc number. Thank YOU, Cody Hosterman and Drew Tonneson (the primary authors)! Click on the below to download!
You can expect an updated Techbook soon for customers using SRM 5 with the latest SRDF SRA (which is one of the more sophisticated, but also more complex SRM/replication implementations). We’re also working on an Isilon Techbook – targeted to be coincident with the next major ONE FS release which will open up Isilon for many more VMware-centric use cases. The EMC VNXe is too simple to warrant a techbook :-)
Feedback is ALWAYS welcome. I’m pushing for these books to be published in ebook formats, as well as posted as native HTML (will help with the always handy google query way of finding answers), but any and all other suggestions welcome!
