The book is for anyone who is interested in learning the concepts of the vRA and planning to perform the deployments. It’s necessary to have basic system administration and virtualization skills particularity on the VMware vSphere.
The book consists of 8 chapters, the first chapters gives a good overview of the vRA and the components which are part of the vRA suite. Chapter 2 – 5 takes you through installation & configuration of the vRA with the required functional testing to be done for a successful deployment. Chapter 6 helps to understand the failover testing which are performed as part of the User Acceptance testing of the vRealize Automation.
Since the book is focused on the distributed install, load balancer is required for certain components of the vRA. VMware NSX load balancer is used as load balacer through this book for configuration. However do note this book covers only the basic configuration of the LB on NSX, it is assume NSX has been setup and fully functional for the vRA.
The books ends with explaining the benefits of Advanced Service Designer (ASD), and how to achieve XaaS using the ASD.
I would recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about automation and Orchestration.
