New to Virtualization – Getting Started Resources

There are a ton of fantastic resources available but a majority of these are again focused on folks who currently have some level of knowledge and experience working in virtualized environments.

New Home Lab Switch

I set out to find a managed switch that would support 802.1q VLANs, could be managed (either by Web interface or CLI), would support Jumbo Frames, and was affordable. I came across the TP-Link TL-SG2424 24-Port Gigabit Smart Switch.
