VMware vSphere 5
Ce livre s'adresse aux Architectes et Gestionnaires d'infrastructures virtuelles qui souhaitent adopter ou possèdent déjà VMware vSphere 5. La virtualisation est aujourd'hui incontournable et devient la clé de voûte de l'avenir du système d’information, notamment avec l'arrivée du Cloud Computing. Avec Vmware vSphere 5, Vmware finit d'asseoir son statut de leader du marché. Comme la virtualisation touche plusieurs secteurs, les auteurs détaillent, au fur et à mesure des chapitres, différents sujets comme le stockage (différentes technologies / performances / bonnes pratiques), le réseau (la gestion avancée avec le Nexus 1000V ou encore les DvSwitch), la haute disponibilité (pour accueillir des infrastructure critiques / assurer des SLA) ou encore la sécurité (afin de protéger au mieux son infrastructure, évaluer les risques et choisir les technologies qui peuvent couvrir les risques existants). Tous ces sujets sont illustrés de nombreux schémas pour faciliter leur assimilation. Par ailleurs, l’expérience des auteurs en tant qu'intégrateurs, leur a permis de souligner les difficultés courantes rencontrées, les technologies à privilégier, ainsi que les bonnes pratiques en matière de virtualisation.

The nonfiction debut from the author of the international bestseller Sacred Games about the surprising overlap between writing and computer coding Vikram Chandra has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a novelist. In this extraordinary new book, his first work of nonfiction, he searches for the connections between the worlds of art and technology. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both? Can we ascribe beauty to the craft of writing code? Exploring such varied topics as logic gates and literary modernism, the machismo of tech geeks, the omnipresence of an "Indian Mafia" in Silicon Valley, and the writings of the eleventh-century Kashmiri thinker Abhinavagupta, Geek Sublime is both an idiosyncratic history of coding and a fascinating meditation on the writer's art. Part literary essay, part technology story, and part memoir, it is an engrossing, original, and heady book of sweeping ideas.
