This is the first in a series of plain talk and screenshot heavy guides meant to build up a virtualized environment using VMware vSphere 6.0 from the ground up. There are over 380 pages with over 500 screenshots on how to get your VMware vSphere 6.0 environment up and running. We believe in a no fluff policy so there is little philosophy or deep dive explanations. This is a straight up how to manual dedicated to the beginner who has little to no experience with these systems. We show you how to stand up a very standardized system that will be ready for you to completely customize upon completion! We hope you enjoy this guide.
