Chris Wahl – Consistent vSphere Environments with Vester

Chris Wahl – Chief Technologist at Rubrik Auditing and Enforcing a Consistent vSphere Configuration using PowerShell and Pester

The amount of vSphere data center, cluster, storage, and network options available to an administrator are massive. Even specific features such as High Availability (HA) and the Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) have a ton of different configuration settings provided to meet the needs of your specific virtualized workloads. It can be a challenge, however, to audit the settings and best understand why they were set in the first place – especially as other administrators join and leave your organization!

Join Rubrik’s Chris Wahl, PowerShell MVP and co-host of the Datanauts Podcast, as he takes a look at how to abstract vSphere configuration settings into declarative configuration files with Vester, an open source project based on PowerShell and Pester. Learn how to audit, track, and enforce consistent settings – with notes and comments – to ensure the availability and standardization of your vSphere environment.
