There are some good technical PDFs here on my website, where you can learn about maximizing VM performance for your VMs, recovering some space on your datastores or learn more about IOPS. All those documents are provided for free by my partners and I’ve created a dedicated page on my blog – Free technical PDFs.
The PFDs are targetted for VMware vSphere VI, but there are also some for Microsoft Hyper-V, Backup in virtual infrastructure or other management products for virtual infrastructure. Free technical PDFs can be found here on our website.
Maximizing VMware Virtual Machines Performance - In this technical Whitepaper called Maximizing Virtual Machine Performance, Mattias Sundling walks you in several steps, through the basics on where you can recover the maximum of performance of your VMs, which is otherwise lost in miss-configurations. A well-tuned installation enables you to make better use of your virtual infrastructure. Optimizing CPU, memory, disk and network will improve performance and make your virtual environment more efficient to manage.
Removing Data Waste From Virtualized Storage - You’ll learn how to recover back the storage you paid some big money… this process is not always easy since you might deal with large infrastructure. Finding and deleting orphaned VMs and VMDK files which might not being removed after failed storage vMotion, or created by third party backup solution, about Abandoned VMs, about VMs with unused snapshots, Unused Templates and also about Zombie VMs – which are not easy to identify, since cross referencing with inventory information is required.

The Ins and outs of IOPS - New White paper from vKernel explains IOPS, which is not an easy topic, but you’ll get some good tips. What IOPS mean – In and Out Operations per Second. The discussion in this document focusing on IOPS, and how storage I/O is an often over-simplified topic. The author is Brad Bonn from vKernel and he explains what are IOPS, where to look at the storage performance degradations, and also how to plan your storage architecture.
