After three days of waiting from the rumoured release date of vSphere 5, VMware have finally released the binaries for the vSphere 5 suite of products. Having been on a few beta’s that incorporated the new vSphere suite of products I’ve been dying to finally get a hold of the GA version so that I could finally start using it. The binaries are available to download now via the VMware download page as long as you have a valid account to download it with. I’m already downloading all the binaries and really looking forward to trying it all out and utilising all the new features.
There are a number of documents that have been released for the suite which should provide a substantial amount of reading for all us who are now looking to implement it and know how it all works. The VMware site has all the documents for vSphere5 here and as Simon Seagrave pointed out in his blog posting there are even kindle formats of them now.Also remember to purchase Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman’s new book vSphere 5 Clustering Technical Deepdive
So get downloading and hopefully I’ll be posting a load more resources on the new suite especially with VMworld US happening next week.
