Explore The Benefits of vSphere 6.5 & 6.7 Webinar

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 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 17th 2020 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)

Follow on from VMware Starting Certifications - 2020 designations now in place

Last year I wrote a brief introduction into the VMware starter and professional certifications.

VMware have now upgraded the certification titles with the new 2020 designations.

If you're new to the certification trail, any exams you now sit will lead towards the new certification, VMware are currently working on their upgrade paths, and I'll post information as I find it.

If you are a VCP-x2019 VMware have said that their system has logic to realise you're a VCP-x and that the 2019 designation will lead to VCAP-x2020s

The new certification designations 2020 for the starter courses and the VCP are as follows.

The VMware Certified Associate

This certificate is aimed at providing a good overall knowledge of the VMware products and why they are used.

The VMware Certified Professional tracks are as follows.
