by Patrick Redknap on November 2, 2010

VMware has released a useful “technical paper” covering Performance Best Practices for VMware vSphere 4.1.

The technical paper, Performance Best Practices for VMware vSphere 4.1, provides performance tips that covers the most performance-critical areas of VMware vSphere 4.1. Although it is not a comprehensive guide for planning and configuring your deployments it is worth checking out!

Chapter 1 – “Hardware for Use with VMware vSphere,” provides guidance on selecting hardware for use with vSphere.

Chapter 2 – “ESX and Virtual Machines,” provides guidance regarding VMware ESX™ software and the virtual machines that run in it.

Chapter 3 – “Guest Operating Systems,” provides guidance regarding the guest operating systems running in vSphere virtual machines.

Chapter 4 – “Virtual Infrastructure Management,” provides guidance regarding resource management best practices.
