Better off printing some smart articles from the internetReviewed in the United States on 4 June 2016
High performance Essentials?? Rather just a vSphere Performance views basic comments. Doesn't even touch the basic numbers you see in vSphere Client to explain what is still ok and what is too high and why is it too high. Better off printing some smart articles from the internet.
