The VMware vRealize Suite Link-O-Rama Resource Page

We all have opinions on what works and what does not; this chronicles what worked for me – if it adds value, use it, if not, ignore.
As an Enterprise Architect, whether you are getting ready for the VCDX Design Scenario portion of your VCDX defence or improving your “on the fly” consulting skills in client meetings, it makes a lot of sense to have a standard set of “Go-To” logical design templates that you can rely upon when white boarding.
