Hello everyone, today I am planning to install VMWare vSphere system on my home server. vSphere Hypervisor is a free, powerful tool to build your own bare-metal virtualization server. As an alternative, Proxmox also has some great features to build bare-metal virtualization system.
VMWare vSphere is very easy to install. There are many great documentations showing how to install and also do something great with this software. The latest version of vSphere Hypervisor 6.7 is now available. Download now and convert your server into a powerful virtualization server.
Please note that you will need to login or create new VMware account in otder to download.
