[POLL] your VMware vSphere version plans for late 2015

Veeam Logoby Gostev » Sun Feb 22, 2015 7:49 pm

Dear all, please let us know what vSphere version are you planning to be running by the end of 2015. With the introduction of vSphere 6, we need to start looking at de-investing in support for legacy versions. The results of this poll will allow us to focus our QC resources on vSphere versions according to their actual market share, which in the end will result in better v9 code quality where it really matters.

Based on the poll results, we would also like to consider dropping vSphere 4.0 support in B&R v9 (while still supporting vSphere 4.1 for now, since this is the last vSphere version where "fat" ESX is available). Considering that by late 2015, vSphere 4.0 will be over 6 years old, it seems pretty fair to remove from our supported platforms for v9. So anyone voting for vSphere 4.0, please also comment below why the time to move off vSphere 4.0 has not come for you yet (this is very important, and may affect our decision).

Thanks as always for helping us shape our roadmap!

Vsphere 5.5 or vSphere 6. Depends on features or feature changes in vSphere 6

Probably 5.5, because I have to make a version update from 5.1 in two-three weeks maximum, and even if 6.0 is released in that time.. i'm not sure if I would install it xD

Regards.

I am currently at vSphere 5.1 Update 3, which is the highest version supported by VMware on the Intel Modular Server. So, unless they support the hardware in Version 6, I am restricted to my current version until our server is replaced.

I'm currently running 5.5 U2d (2456374) on my Intel MFSYS25 v1 chassis and am not experiencing any issues with it.

Hi,
Will run 5.1 on our test environment as our SAN only supports up to that (Dell MD3000i). Production will run version 6

5.1 since they dropped support for Quadro 4000 cards in 5.5 and our servers are not compatible with grid cards (which is annoying to say the least)

Some customer on 5.5, much of them still on 5.1, some on 5.0.
Only few remaining on 4.1 but not with Veeam.

We will wait a while before starting to adopt and upgrade to 6.0. probably not until 2016.
