vSphere 5.5 available for download… hold!

Luca Dell’Oca from Virtual to the Core comments:

Yesterday, on Sunday 22nd September VMware released in its website the new vSphere 5.5 suite, just like vCloud 5.5.

Many guys already started to download the new software. For sure it’s a good time to test the new versions in a test or pre-production environment, so to verify all the upgrades and all consequences on the actual environment; but if you are running a production environment and you want to keep it in good shape, I’m suggesting you to wait, for several good reasons:

Luca says what everyone should already know (but ignores anyway). Don’t *ever* upgrade to the new release the day it comes out. Test, test, and test some more to be sure it won’t break anything. Not listening to Luca is how 3 a.m. support calls happen.
