VMware vSphere 6.0 End of Support


The End of General Support for vSphere 6.0 is March 12, 2020.

To maintain your full level of Support and Subscription Services, VMware recommends upgrading to vSphere 6.5 or vSphere 6.7.

VMware has extended the general support for vSphere 6.5 to a full five years from date of release, which means the general support for vSphere 6.5 will end on November 15, 2021.

The End of General support for vSphere 6.7 will also be on November 15, 2021.

At VMworld 2019 a lot of the sessions spoke about vSphere.next and hopefully we will see that soon.

In the meantime, users of vSphere 6.0 can upgrade to vSphere version 6.5 or 6.7, if you’re not aware of what vSphere 6.0 or 6.7 can offer, I will be hosting/running a free webinar on the features of those versions.

The webinar will run GMT Monday February 17th2020 via our QA On-Line Virtual Centre  

For more information and to sign up for this “FREE” webinar please visit the registration page at QA Training, and hopefully see you there (virtually)
