Free vSphere Videos / Demos

I picked this up on twitter via @DellServerGeek: Mike Laverick has generously posted many vSphere how-to demos on his website. This is a significant body of work to make freely available. Mike goes through the entire process from "soup to nuts". For anyone curious about setting up a vSphere environment these are a must watch! If you like the series - consider procuring his accompanying book. Thanks Mike!

Free Storage for Your vSphere Lab!

VM Super Genius has a post with a link to free storage solutions that can facilitate trying out some of the more advanced features in VMware ESX / vSphere. As noted many of those features require shared storage (iSCSI, NFS, Fiber SAN) which can be prohibitively expensive for many. The list offers some zero cost appliances / applications that can provide iSCSI and/or NFS storage to virtual hosts. An excellent blog to follow if you are into virtualization.
