VMware vSphere 5.5 officially went end of general support over 4 months ago, however VMware show that circa 80% of customers are still running instances of v5.5.

Softcat understand that the upgrade process can be both technically challenging, but also complex from a business planning perspective. 

This webinar will cover an overview of the vSphere technology, what is available in the latest versions, key challenges with upgrading and your current options moving forwards.

Softcat’s VMware Technical Design lead and VMware's Senior SE will also dive into how Softcat's longstanding partnership with VMware can help your organisation modernise the datacentre in line with evolving organisational priorities.
