Allocated Unlimited Memory…Or Have You?

After doing a range of Memory testing and analysis on a group of Vmware Virtual Machines, the subject of the “Unlimited” Memory/CPU tick box was brought up.

So i will do my best to try and explain exactly “Unlimited” means.

10,000 People have taken The SLOG’s VCP4 Practice Exam

Who would have thought it!! I only set it up to help me revise for the VMware VCP4 Beta Exam.

3 Months later, it now has over 60 Questions (increasing all the time). I receive emails daily thanking me for helping them prepare for their VCP4 exam.  People as far away as New Zealand are being told to use my Exam’s and Study Notes by VMware instructors.

But the most amazing part was when i checked Google Analytics to see how many people are using it:

10000

I never expected it to be soo popular. As you can see the hits per day are increasing at a steady rate, so i’m going to do my best, to keep adding more resources, to make sure you visitors have a reason to keep coming back.
