vSphere Continuous Beta

vSphere continues to push new boundaries and accelerate the pace of innovation within VMware and for our customers. One of the best ways for us to test new ideas and functionality is through our close partnerships with our customers and broader ecosystem through our beta programs. We are announcing the next iteration of the vSphere Download Beta Program which we’re dubbing the vSphere Continuous Beta.

But the most important part is that the newest beta software was dropped on July 22, 2020 in the beta program community. And due to the nature of our continuous beta model, new builds and features will be posted to the community over time. The goal of this program is to deliver new features and functionality that are not tied to a specific release. As such, you may find yourself testing features we’ll see in an upcoming release, releases much further down the road, or features that simply might never make the cut to be released.

As mentioned earlier, being part of the vSphere Continuous Beta program helps VMware make better product decisions that are data-driven and based on the feedback we get from you. Once you are accepted into the program, you’ll not only have access to the latest beta software but also be asked to perform specific tasks within the software to test new features. You’ll then provide us feedback on those features, workflows, and experiences. And all that feedback helps to create a more stable and valuable product.

You’ll also have access to the Beta Community where you can post questions, feedback, and interact with vSphere Product Management, Technical Marketing, and Engineering directly.
