I recently posted an article regarding the virtualisation of Exchange 2010 and stated that “yes it is possible”, and also gave some links for the documents from Microsoft and VMware on best practices.
I was just signing myself up for some online learning relating to the vCAP-DCD 5 and I found a self paced online course from VMware for Virtualising Exchange, so I’ve signed up for it.
I’m going to work through the course this weekend (sad yes, but it’s my job and it’s for my benefit, also Tracey my wife and the kiddies are going shopping (I’ve just been paid))
Here’s the description of this course.
