Description

Not really a rig showcase, but I figured it's worth for a post.

Changing focus from Microsoft to VMware so I decided to build 2 identical white boxes for lab work. Best of all, they are using AMD Ryzen chips!

Everything up and running. Kudos to Andreas Peetz for creating VMware Front Experience: ESXi-Customizer-PS. Without this gem I would of had a real difficult time getting the lab going so thank you!
