September 11th, 2012 No comments

Yup – vSphere 5.1 is now available at https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/info/slug/datacenter_cloud_infrastructure/vmware_vsphere/5_1

“Customers who have purchased VMware vSphere 5.1 can download their relevant installation package from the product download tab below. Looking to upgrade from vSphere 4 or Infrastructure 3? Visit the VMware vSphere Upgrade Center.

Deploy vSphere 5.1 on the ESXi hypervisor architecture

VMware vSphere 5.1 is available exclusively on the vSphere ESXi hypervisor architecture. ESXi is the latest hypervisor architecture from VMware and, as of the vSphere 4.1 release, VMware’s recommended best practice when deploying VMware vSphere. Users can upgrade to ESXi (from ESX) as part of an upgrade to vSphere 5.1.

For more information visit VMware ESXi and VMware ESX Info Center

Once you have purchased VMware vSphere 5.1, you will receive a licensing confirmation email with your license keys or you can retrieve your license keys from the vSphere License portal.
