CloudPhysics Makes VSphere 5.5 Upgrades Safer, Easier And Faster – For Free

VMware recently released a new version of its flagship product – VMware vSphere 5.5 – with loads of new features. You may be planning to upgrade your servers to this release in the near future. But as we all know, software upgrades are prone to risks and careful planing is necessary especially when dealing with core infrastructure software. VMware has published a very nice Knowledge Base (KB) article outlining the best practices for vSphere 5.5 upgrade. At CloudPhysics we have built some cool things to help you with this process. You can learn about them in this blog and they are completely free to try. 

The most important piece of the upgrade process is the hardware compatibility check. VMware maintains a strict hardware compatibility list (HCL) to ensure all the included systems and devices are fully stress tested. The upside is that you can run your mission-critical applications with peace of mind. The downside is that you must check to ensure your server system and all associated I/O devices are compatible with the new software release. This is usually a painful process – and when you have 100s of hosts, it’s almost impossible. Overlooking server or I/O device incompatibility can put your system at severe risk of disruption.
