With vSphere 5.5 going end of life on September 19, 2018, we have been organizing workshops all over the world to better educate customers and partners to upgrade to vSphere 6.x.  If you have already upgraded to vSphere 6.0 or 6.5, you may be interested in the latest features and wonder what your upgrade path would be to vSphere 6.7.

To help you understand the upgrade process and what is new in vSphere 6.7 please join David Stamen and Nigel Hickey as we facilitate our vSphere Upgrade Technical Workshops, we are bringing this straight to you at VMworld! We will have two workshops on Sunday August 26. The first session will be from 8am to 12pm, and the second session will be from 1pm – 5pm.

 

With vSphere 6.5U2 and vSphere 6.7 general availability, and vSphere 5.5 end of general support coming up on September 19, 2018, you may be wondering which way to go.

Hear directly from the vSphere upgrade experts on the following:

check Technical deep dive of what’s new in vSphere 6.7 and the benefits of upgrading
check vSphere upgrade best practices – the steps, tools, and documentation needed to ensure a successful upgrade
check Interactive whiteboard and upgrade scenario discussion including vSphere 5.x to 6.x
With vSphere as your foundational hypervisor layer, keeping up to date is essential. Attend this workshop to learn the benefits of upgrading and the steps to ensure a successful upgrade.

It all starts with vSphere
