VMware Virtual Machine Template - Windows Server 2008 R2

Update: 2013/03/29

Virtual Machine Template
Virtual Machine Templates come in very handy when you want to have a repository of Virtual Machine base or images that you can easily create a virtual machine from. This saves you the time of installing/configuring the operating system, installing regular common applications and patching the system.
