Friendly Reminder: VMware vSphere 6.5 and 6.7 EoGS

Greetings, everyone! I wanted to post a friendly reminder to the greater VMware and vExpert Community that there are exactly three months left before vSphere 6.5 and 6.7 reaches end of general support (EoGS) on October 15, 2022. VMware vSphere 7.0 was officially released in April 2020, and it’s hard to believe that it’s been available for just over two years now. From personal experience the, the newer 7.0 U3c+ releases have been a lot more stable and resilient compared to the GA/U1/U2 releases.

In any event, if you’ve not yet started planning your vSphere upgrade to 7.0, please be sure to work with your VMware TAM or account team, check hardware compatibility lists (HCL), upgrade/interop matrices, etc. as upgrade guidance can vary based on the release, hardware, and other integrated products that you’re upgrading from.
