Yeah.  It was a good start to things back in the day, but people ran out of time/effort
to update it. :/

Andthen once a year, someone cherrypicks the best exemples to be featured on the website.

Interesting approach.  That would lead to a curated list fairly decently. :)

The entries on that page at the moment are a bit old, but that’s fixable.

With these two VMware blog posts from a few months ago:


https://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2016/03/getting-comfortable-with-vpostgres-and-the-vcenter-server-appliance-part-1.html

https://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2016/05/getting-comfortable-with-vpostgres-and-the-vcenter-server-appliance-part-2.html

They seem like a decent fit for the page.  They’re the one’s describing why VMware vCenter
is moving from Windows+(MSSQL/Oracle) to a self contained Linux+PostgreSQL appliance.

Thinking a new “Virtualisation” heading, and putting them there?

Regards and best wishes,
