vSphere 5.5 Virtual Machine Configuration Maximum Flashcards

by admin

I’ve created some ESXTOP flashcards previously, which had some positive feedback, so in the same vein, this post will look at presenting virtual machine configuration maximums as flashcards for those of you looking to commit these to memory. Might come in handy if you’re currently studying for the VCP or other VMware certification exams.
