A white paper which I have worked on extensively has just been published. The case study takes a design / architecture approach and lists design considerations, requirements and assumptions throughout the document. I want to thank the people who worked with me on this document: Aidan Dalgleish, Frank Denneman, Matthew Northam, Venky Deshpande and Cormac Hogan. Below you can find more details… don’t forget to download it! I made sure it was available in various formats so each and everyone of you can read it on its favorite device.
Source – Cloud Infrastructure Architecture Case Study
Description: The VMware Cloud Infrastructure Architecture Case Study Series was developed to provide an understanding of the various components of the VMware Cloud Infrastructure Suite. The goal is to explain how these components can be used in specific scenarios, which are based on real-world customer examples and therefore contain real-world requirements and constraints. The VMware Cloud Infrastructure Suite consists of five technologies that together expand the capabilities and value that customers can realize from a virtualized infrastructure. This case study focuses on vSphere 5.0 and vShield App 5.0.

Great paper read all the way through word by word, are there more case studies like this with different scenarios and storage usage especially around Flexpod, vBlock would be awesome. Are there centralize repository papers like this we can read all at once?
I believe one type on the storage IOPS calculation, it should read “I/O Profile” instead of “IP Profile”.
Duncan Epping says
Thanks for pointing that out. Some auto-grammar fix must have done that as my doc still shows “i/o profile”.
This is the first one I developed. More will follow at some point with different types of storage. However for Flexpod or Vblock specific docs I will need to refer to NetApp / Cisco / VCE.
Great work Duncan! Looking forward to see more 🙂
A very good written white paper. Kuddos for that! Very easy to read and understand which is a big plus for quite some people.
Great stuff…! With Duncan and his blogs out there to help me out, I am not at all concerned about why I left VMware…!

This is awesome!
