Yellow Bricks is a personal Blog about virtualization(mostly VMware related) maintained by me, Duncan Epping. The name is derived from an Arctic Monkeys song, Old Yellow Bricks. Yellow Bricks are solid but flexible at the same time because you can build virtually anything. Same goes for virtualization, it provides you with a firm foundation while gaining flexibility at the same time. Yellow Bricks, building blocks for virtualization.
