vSphere 5 download available!

Since August 25 VMware vSphere 5 can be downloaded. Already a lot of bloggers posted information so I am not going to repeat it. See Duncan Epping’s post for an overview of download locations and documentation. 

Documentation is available in HTML, PDF and also EPUB and MOBI format! Mobi is for Kindle readers and MOBI for other e-book readers. Very handy. See an overview of documentation in all available formats here.

An overview what is new can be found at this posting
William Lam described 50 of the new features in a good blogposting here.

An overview of my postings on vSphere 5  (HA, Storage DRS, vCenter Server Appliance, new licensing, VCP 5 ) can be found here

A new version of Performance Best Practices for vSphere  is now available.  This is a book designed to help system administrators obtain the best performance from vSphere deployments.

For customers having a support & subscription (S&S) contract: the download will be available next week!
