Here it is folks, the moment many of you have been waiting for! VMware vSphere 5 is now available for download from VMware’s site. For those of you running your own work or home vSphere lab environment this will be welcome news as you will now be able to get some hands on time playing with some of the cool new enhancements and features found in vSphere 5. For a list of the main new enhancements and features check out my earlier post here.
As I type this I am downloading the free ESXi 5.0 offering which is showing a build number of 469512.
VMware have done a great job with providing plenty of decent supporting documentation around the various aspects of vSphere 5, with a notable addition that these electronic based documents are now also available in the ‘epub’ and ‘mobi’ (supported by Kindle) formats.
