vSphere Central, The Messenger of God

What’s vSphere Central?

The God (VMware) is releasing new version of their products every year, sometimes you’ll get new notification about new patches every day. Thank you about all efforts but please slow down! Installing new versions or upgrading current versions need to installation/upgrade instructions. The instructions are like Holy Bible for any administrator. So who is the messenger?
