vSphere 5.0 & 5.1 End of Support soon - Upgrade your ESXi Hosts

hcl-60You might be aware that General Support for VMware vSphere 5.0 and 5.1 ends in about 4 weeks at August 24th. If not, I encourage you to use my VMware Product End Of Support Countdown to keep an eye on EOS dates (It also supports ics based calendar reminders).

If you are not running on ESXi 5.5 or ESXi 6.0, it is time to upgrade now. Prior to upgrade, please check VMware Compatibility Guide (HCL) to verify that your server is supported for the targeted vSphere release.

The following Servers were supported in 5.0/5.1 but are no longer supported in 5.5 or 6.0. If you are running one of the following systems in a production environment, you should not upgrade. After 2016-08-24 you will then enter the Technical Guidance Phase.

(List limited to Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM and Lenovo)
