Modern Best Practices with vSphere?

Post by rnelson0 » Jun 21, 2016 1:51 am

Is there a Modern Best Practices guide for use with vSphere? I found a few forum threads, like this, but all the ones I found are old, disjointed, or both. Is there a definitive guide that I simply cannot find? Thanks!

Our solutions architects have written a best practices book for v8. While it's in the process of being upgraded to v9, most of the ideas in it are valuable regardless the version. Find it here :

Luca, thanks for that link. I posted this link on twitter last night and was pointed to a few more external links:

I'm working on using Tags for backup jobs now, plus some of the other information discovered along the way. Looking forward to the v9 Best Practices guide when it arrives!

As soon as it is released, Anton will probably mention it in forum weekly digest (to which you as a forum member are already subscribed). Thanks.

I went and wrote my own article on Tag-based Veeam Backups. I wouldn't call it a best practice guide, but my interpretation of the BP guides I listed above, in particular Luca's VMworld session and @k00laidIT's links and some discussion with him. Comments and critiques welcome. https://rnelson0.com/2016/06/29/tag-bas ... m-backups/
