Biographie de l'auteur

Matt Liebowitz is currently an advisory solution architect at EMC Consulting with a focus on virtualizing business critical applications. He has been working as a consultant and architect for more than 12 years and has been working with VMware’s virtualization technology since 2002. Matt has written virtualization articles in several industry publications, has presented on virtualization at conferences and at his local VMware user group, and has been a blogger on the topic since 2009. Matt also worked with VMware to create content for their Virtualizing Business Critical Applications competency for VMware’s partners and customers.


Matt is very honored to have been named a VMware vExpert each year since 2010, as well as an EMC Elect in 2013. He also holds numerous industry certifications from VMware and Microsoft. Matt maintains a VMware virtualization-focused blog at, is a frequent contributor to the VMware Technology Network (VMTN), and is active on Twitter at @mattliebowitz.


When Matt is not out trying to save the world through virtualization, he’s happily playing with his two young kids, Tyler (3) and Kaitlyn (1), and spending time with his wife, Joann.


Alex Fontana is currently a solutions architect in VMware’s Global Center of Excellence. During his eight years at VMware, Alex has focused on the virtualization of business critical Microsoft applications for both VMware IT and external customers. In his current role, Alex helps VMware customers to be successful in virtualizing Microsoft applications by conducting technical workshops and authoring technical documentation and blogs. Alex has been a recurring speaker at VMworld since 2008 and VMware Partner Exchange since 2010, and is a frequent contributor to the VMware Technology Network (VMTN).


When Alex is not busy writing, working with a customer, or trying to break something in the lab, he can be found at the nearest golf course, on a snow-covered mountain, at a San Francisco Giants game, or in the backyard smoking various cuts of meat. Alex lives in the San Francisco bay area with his wife, Laura, and three kids, Joseph, Sissy, and Sergio.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clear some room on your desk to keep this resoruce on it! 12 novembre 2013
Par Mark Achtemichuk - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I'm commonly asked these types of questions:

How do I undertake a capacity assessment? Why?
What do I need to watch out for when virtualizing my domain controllers?
What are some key metrics to monitor when considering or troubleshooting virtualized SQL?
How many seconds per year of downtime does 99.999% allow?
Are there licensing implications to virtualizing Microsoft applications?
What are the pro's and con's of the various clustering technologies?

This book not only answers the technical and business questions above, but makes a point of ensuring each topic make us better administrators by not just addressing technology and how to implement it in exquisite detail, but also calls out business considerations like people, security and availability. I find this book is written to assist both virtualization admins as well as application owners (dare I even say management to put potential effort and reward into perspective). No one person can know all these products, considerations and implications, so a reference like this is invaluable. This is an excellent, up-to-date and well rounded resource.

P.S. Also a great guide for those planning to take on the VMware VCDX certification process.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A "Must Have" read for anyone running Microsoft Applications on VMware vSphere 10 novembre 2013
Par Chris Wahl - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
The virtualization of business critical applications is a strong blend of both people constraints and technology constraints. Knowing this, Liebowitz and Fontana have compiled a great set of real-world experiences into book format that dive deep into people, process, and technology concerns. Much of the content focus on the "why" behind the design process, which is simply not available from any white paper or technical document. For example, great pains are put forth to dissect business process, application silos, and how to set a "virtualize first" policy that resonate well with actual work I've done with clients.

Additionally, the two authors cover a wide range of critical applications that are in use by many environments for revenue generating activities. The fact that you can read about first hand experience with the virtualization of SQL, Domain Controllers, Exchange, and Failover Clusters is awesome. These are challenging, if not scary, applications to have to tackle, and this book is like having a co-pilot guiding you along the way. Even if you've already deployed these workloads into your environment, I'd recommend doing a review of the architecture and configuration using the tips and guides found in this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Making sense of adding critical business applications to VMware 5 février 2015
Par Bob Monroe - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Let's say your company has already implemented VMware across the entire enterprise. Everything your users need are stored in virtual machines and run in virtual environments. “This is great” says the authors Matt Liebowitz and Alex Fontana “but what about all the other critical applications that aren't on your virtual machines?” The book Virtualizing Microsoft Business Critical Applicatons on VMware vSphere wants to know why you haven't put everything on VMware. They make some really good arguments for storing and running everything in a virtual world.

However, the authors almost talk the reader out of placing Microsoft business applications on VMware in the beginning of the book. It's not all that often that an editor would allow a writer to convince it's readers not to read their book but somehow it happened here. Maybe it's just the way I read the book or the way my messed up head works but it sure seems to me that the authors are damn impressed with Microsoft’s built in high availability techniques. They seem so impressed that they almost talk you out of using VMware for ensuring an even higher level of availability.

Notice that I said “almost.”

Yes, Microsoft has a great reputation for making business applications that are critical to our jobs.
Yes, Microsoft has a wonderful design for ensuring major applications have multiple fail-safes and remain operational if you fully implement (have the resources) the suggested hardware requirements.
Yes, to all that but both Max and Alex make a hell of a good argument as to why any organization should look at virtualizing everything, all applications, of all size and manner. Because it adds several additional layers of protection and reduces overall costs. That is part of the reason. Increased speed, scalability, and lower costs are other reasons.

I had a great time reading this book. Let me throw that out there. I enjoyed reading this book, not because of the tongue and cheek humor but because it is one of the few books out there that makes sense of a complex issue. Virtualization isn't going anywhere but up. Companies are having to do more with less and IT people are being asked to work harder then ever before. If one server goes down for a failure, that is money lost, plain and simple. Microsoft knows this and has built a business application infrastructure designed to withstand such failures.

Virtualizing Microsoft Business Critical Applicatons on VMware vSphere was written to take some of the resource requirements necessary for full Microsoft redundancy compliance off your hands. It was written to show you that VMware will perform many of the same functions for high availability of those critical applications, without needing a full hot site for disaster recovery. VMware augments the redundancy of Microsoft business applications in the same way it does for all your software, it is run in a virtual environment. If something breaks, VMware automatically switches to another virtual machine or server before anyone would notice.

Whether you are running Microsoft Exchange, Server 2012, Sever 2013, Sharepoint, or even SQL Server 2012, VMware treats them as virtual servers, thus creates multiple entities. Multiple entities means far fewer points of failure, better access control, more efficient use of physical resources and better business continuity all around. Name me one business that would not want to have that.

The book takes each aspect of deploying VMware across Microsoft's flagship business applications and shows you how to get the most out of the partnership. The authors provide the reader with solid evidence for those naysayers who might oppose the idea. There are plenty of people who won't like the idea of putting all their applications into a virtual environment but they haven't read this book yet, either. Progress isn't made by those who are content with here and now, it is made by those who want to push the boundaries. Matt and Alex definitely push the boundaries but back up their ideas with solid evidence.

If Microsoft licensing has you worried, don't be. It's already covered in the book Virtualizing Microsoft Business Critical Applicatons on VMware vSphere. In fact the authors show you how to reduce those costs through the use of VMware without violating the terms of service. That alone is worth the price of this book.

As a side note, one the technical reviewers, Glenn Drawdy, holds a Business Administration degree. I went back and looked this up because I noticed that the book brings up People, Processes, and Technology in several areas. A large hurtle that the reader will need to overcome is trying to convince others that moving business critical applications to VMware is a worthy cause. This is not so much a technical issue but a business issue. Any business issue means that it is a people issue as well. You will need to convince other people that this make business sense. Matt and Alex do a very good job of approaching the business aspect and the human aspect of such a move so as to limit any push back you might encounter. Very few technical books can say the same thing.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read for anyone considering virtualizing BCAs! - Josh Odgers (VCDX) 15 juillet 2014
Par Josh Odgers - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) with many years of experience, I am regularly frustrated with the lack of expert level content available in technical books, which are generally targeted at the mass market and not to experienced engineers/architects. This book is a welcome change as it clearly explains the basics through to advanced topics clearly and concisely.

I recommend anyone who is considering or already virtualizing business critical applications buy this book as its a small investment for such great insight into what can be challenging applications to virtualize. The content in the book will ensure you minimize the risk involved and get the job done right the first time.
