Fellow (Dutch) community peer, Frank Denneman, created a VMware a vSphere Design Pocket Guide. The content of this guide was also created with the support of the community. Frank and I both share the same passion to share knowledge and lead in the industry. We both share awesome content so everyone can benefit. It’s awesome to see Datacenter and Workspace knowledge being shared by the community in the community and larger industry.
