Your Guide to the vSphere Management SDK!

VMware provides the world’s most powerful, flexible virtualization platform that thousands of businesses already benefit from – but there’s even more power and flexibility to be acquired with the use of the vSphere SDK and API kits. The VMware SDK includes APIs which allow developers and administrators to custom develop applications and fine-tune programs, allowing them to get the absolute most from the VMware platform. For many, the VMware SDK and API kits are a mystery – until now. Master software architect Steve Jin explains the entire VMware SDK and API toolbox for that IT professionals can better master their VMware environments, making them more efficient and cost-effective while delivering greater performance.

In VMware VI and vSphere SDK, Jin demonstrates how to manage every facet of a VMware environment, including inventory, host systems, virtual machines (VMs), snapshots, VMotion, clusters, resource pools, networking, storage, data stores, events, alarms, users, security, licenses, and scheduled tasks. No other VMware API reference guide or VMware SDK book offers this level of detail, with real-world examples and explanations. Jin walks you through using the VMware VI and vSphere SDK step-by-step, showing how to manage servers in any type of environment – ESX server, ESX cluster, VirtualCenter server, and much more.

The Ultimate VMware SDK book.

Jin’s comprehensive guide to the vSphere management SDK, API, and other development toolsets covers almost everything administrators and architects could ever want to know about utilizing these tools to get the most from their VMware environment. Coverage includes:

  • Understanding how the VI SDK fits into your VMware VI and Cloud Ready vSphere Environment
  • Discovering the VI and vSphere SDK from the bottom up
  • Using the author’s new VI Java API to write shorter, faster, and more maintainable code
  • Managing VI and vSphere inventory and configurations
  • Moving running VMs and storages across different physical platforms without disruption
  • Optimizing system resources, hardening system securities, backing up VMs and other resources
  • Leveraging events, alarms, and scheduled tasks to automate the system management
  • Developing powerful applications that integrate multiple API features and run on top of or alongside VMware platforms
  • Using the VI SDK to monitor performance
  • Scripting with the VI SDK: building solutions with VI Perl, PowerShell, and Jython
  • Avoiding the pitfalls that trip up VMware VI developers
  • Integrating with and extending VMware platforms using VI SDK

This book is an indispensable resource for all VMware developers and administrators who want to get more done in less time, for hardware vendors who want to integrate their products with VMware, for ISV developers building new VMware applications, and for every professional and student seeking a deeper mastery of virtualization.
