Welcome to the vmWIKI

The vmWiki was founded on April 21, 2015 by Michelle Laverick. The Wiki was born as an attempt to create an online encyclopedia that is maintained by the VMware Community (vCommunity) and seeded with content from those who have been recognized with high-quality content. We welcome contributions from all people regardless of experience.

For a time it resided on before being ported over the VMware User Group. At that stage Michelle took a sabbatical which lasted two years. Without a keystaker holder the vmWIKI rather withered and wasn't developed or maintained. In Feb, 2018 - Michelle was able resecure the vmWIKI files and restored its to original home on

The intention of vmWiki is to be a platform for the (vCommunity) for the creation and maintenance of product information concerning all VMware Technologies, independent of the company - and independent of interference by vendors who may wish to co-opt it for the promotion their products. While we welcome coverage of complementary technologies and even competing ones, the content should remain technical and should assume the customer has already bought the technology – therefore there is nothing to sell to them.
