CRITICAL ALERT: VMware vSphere 5.5 Reaches End Of Life

Attention! VMware vSphere 5.5 reaches End Of Life. VMware has announced that End of General Support for the VMware vSphere 5.5 family of products was September 19, 2018. This include both vCenter Server 5.5 and vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.5. This means that in order to maintain full support, your vSphere environment should be upgraded to vSphere 6.5 or vSphere 6.7.

If you are currently running VMware vSphere 5.5, it is of critical importance that you plan your upgrade to a newer, supported version as soon as possible. VMware extended the general support of vSphere 6.5 to a full 5 years from the date of release, which means general support would end on November 15, 2021. If you’re active on Support and Subscription, you can purchase extended support for two more years (in one year increments).

If you need assistance in planning or executing your VMware vSphere upgrade, contact the Volta Professional Services group to discuss your needs. 1-888-479-9672
