With vSphere 5 now available for download, it is only right that VMware KBTV provides you with some well-timed videos which will help you to get vSphere 5 up and running in your environment. Whether you have to undergo the task of upgrading and/or migrating your existing vSphere environment to vSphere 5 or you are brand new to the amazing virtualization experience that is VMware vSphere 5, then these videos will certainly be of some use to you!

We will be releasing several videos throughout the course of today as well as over the coming weeks, so be sure to subscribe to us in order to keep updated with the latest video announcements.

To start the ball rolling, here are two very useful videos which discuss and demonstrate the processes involved with upgrading ESX (and ESXi) 4.x systems to ESXi 5.0
