Understand and implement VMware Virtual SAN: the heart of tomorrow’s Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) VMware’s breakthrough Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) initiative can help you virtualize your entire datacenter: compute, storage, networks, and associated services. Central to SDDC is VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN): a fully distributed storage architecture seamlessly integrated into the hypervisor and capable of scaling to meet any enterprise storage requirement. Now, the leaders of VMware’s wildly popular Virtual SAN previews have written the first authoritative guide to this pivotal technology. You’ll learn what Virtual SAN is, exactly what it offers, how to implement it, and how to maximize its value. Writing for administrators, consultants, and architects, Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping show how Virtual SAN implements both object-based storage and a policy platform that simplifies VM storage placement. You’ll learn how Virtual SAN and vSphere work together to dramatically improve resiliency, scale-out storage functionality, and control over QoS. Both an up-to-the-minute reference and hands-on tutorial, Essential Virtual SAN uses realistic examples to demonstrate Virtual SAN’s most powerful capabilities. You’ll learn how to plan, architect, and deploy Virtual SAN successfully, avoid gotchas, and troubleshoot problems once you’re up and running. Coverage includes * Understanding the key goals and concepts of Software-Defined Storage and Virtual SAN technology * Meeting physical and virtual requirements for safe Virtual SAN implementation * Installing and configuring Virtual SAN for your unique environment * Using Storage Policy Based Management to control availability, performance, and reliability * Simplifying deployment with VM Storage Policies * Discovering key Virtual SAN architectural details: caching I/O, VASA, witnesses, pass-through RAID, and more * Ensuring efficient day-to-day Virtual SAN management and maintenance * Interoperating with other VMware features and products * Designing and sizing Virtual SAN clusters * Troubleshooting, monitoring, and performance optimization.

Presents the concepts of ICT audit and control
Shows how to create a verifiable audit-based control structure that will ensure comprehensive security for systems and data
Explains how to establish systematic control and reporting procedures within a standard organizational framework and build auditable trust into the security of ICT operations
Defines a complete and correct set of control objectives along with monitoring and reporting systems
Discusses a formally defined and implemented infrastructure of best practices aimed specifically at optimizing the coordination and control of the security function
The Complete Guide to Cybersecurity Risks and Controls presents the fundamental concepts of information and communication technology (ICT) governance and control. In this book, you will learn how to create a working, practical control structure that will ensure the ongoing, day-to-day trustworthiness of ICT systems and data. The book explains how to establish systematic control functions and timely reporting procedures within a standard organizational framework and how to build auditable trust into the routine assurance of ICT operations.
The book is based on the belief that ICT operation is a strategic governance issue rather than a technical concern. With the exponential growth of security breaches and the increasing dependency on external business partners to achieve organizational success, the effective use of ICT governance and enterprise-wide frameworks to guide the implementation of integrated security controls are critical in order to mitigate data theft. Surprisingly, many organizations do not have formal processes or policies to protect their assets from internal or external threats.
The ICT governance and control process establishes a complete and correct set of managerial and technical control behaviors that ensures reliable monitoring and control of ICT operations. The body of knowledge for doing that is explained in this text. This body of knowledge process applies to all operational aspects of ICT responsibilities ranging from upper management policy making and planning, all the way down to basic technology operation.
