Some months have been through since the release of VMware vSphere 6 and the first little update has been released (U1), but has really come the time to upgrade for those who have an infrastructure built upon vSphere? In order to help you with the decision, in addition to the considerations that you can find in this article, we present you all the news; we took in consideration both the availability of custom ESXi images for the various manufacturers machine and the support of the main backup software products. It is quite hard to think about switching to a new system if the backup software that is currently being used is not compatible yet.
A table with the main backup products for vSphere follows with a list of all the custom images provided by manufacturers that we have found. If we forgot anything, feel free to tell us!
