About The Corner:

In my spare time I am very interested to upgrade my home lab which grows by time and transformed from several physical computers to a virtualized environment.
my Lab included many hypervisors like Hyper-V and VMWare and also personal Storage Arrays to host my Guest Machines and my personal data.
During my lab preparation and regular upgrades i have gained knowledge on many topics from hardware prices and solving compatibility issues to Virtualization,  Networking, Storage Arrays and many other areas I would like to share with you.
I will not repop what have been already on the internet by others, I will only share my own stories which I earned by self Hands on Experience.
