VMware vSphere 5 has arrived!

Posted by Jonas

It feels like ages ago that VMware announced vSphere 5 – this was 12th of July. VMware at that time promised the GA date as being “before VMworld US”.

Yesterday (25.08.2011) VMware put up the bits for the vSphere 5 productline.
Today they followed up by also adding the vCenter Server Linux appliance.

ESX is gone and the only product available is now the beefed up ESXi version, with a more comprehensive firewall among other things.

Documentation overview: VMware vSphere Documentation Centre

I won’t go into details with the new features just yet, but instead list af few links I’ve used myself to learn about, and understand some of the new features of vSphere 5.

The VMworld 2011 US conference takes place in Las Vegas next week (week 35). It’s littlebrother, VMworld Europe takes place in Copenhagen for a second year running in week 42 and I’m going! 😀
