    A Must-Have and Super Helpful

    This book was so helpful for learning VMware. It started with the basics and really explained complex concepts in an easy to understand way. I was able to prove VMware would save money and roll out clustered servers by the time I was finished with the book. This book is a must have for anyone starting with VMware.
