Finding VMware vSphere 5.1 Documentation

  1. 1. VMWARE VSPHERE 5.1 Where can I find it? DOCUMENTATION
  2. 2. OVERVIEWVMware documentation can seem elusive at times but VMware has actuallybuilt document “jump stations” if you will to access just about all thedocuments you could read on a subject. The trick is to poke around a bit andwander off the main path.For there are in fact multiple locations for the “complete” document set. ForvSphere for example there are the product docs, best practice docs,performance docs, architecture docs, granular focus docs and more.Getting out beyond the product docs provides an entire level ofenlightenment. In these few pages I hope you find what you are looking for.
  3. 3. VMWARE VSPHEREDOCUMENTATIONMain Page – VMware vSphere Documentation“Documentation” = online/HTML docsOr just scroll down the Main Page Technical Papers to the desired section.** Tip of the day – scroll all the way to bottom of Main PageAll PDF docs zipped up all nice and tidy
  4. 4. VMWARE VSPHEREDOCUMENTATION CONT’D“Technical Papers”1. Select Product2. Select Area3. Select Publisher4. Click “Filter Results”5. Enjoy Best Practice, Architecture and performance documentation
  5. 5. VMWARE BEST PRACTICESSometimes in Product Guides, sometimes in “Technical Papers”No all-inclusive Best Practice GuidesOnline docs can quickly expand and scan for BPs PDF docs you need to open up and sort through….
  6. 6. CONCLUSIONAll the documentation I canremember needing is at your fingertips.I covered the product docs, technicalpapers and best practices.Also note, on the same “jump” page,the other access points – KnowledgeBase, Security Center and Products.You could bookmark this page asyour “vSphere docs” location and bepretty much good to go.
