VMware Issues Generic Timetable for ESX Phase Out

VMware has issued an ultimatum. Move to ESXi soon or be left behind. As anyone in tune with the VMware world knows, vSphere 4.1 was released yesterday. In the release notes, VMware stated:

VMware vSphere 4.1 and its subsequent update and patch releases are the last releases to include both ESX and ESXi hypervisor architectures. Future major releases of VMware vSphere will include only the VMware ESXi architecture.

This has been a long time coming and should not be a shock to anyone, although this is the first time VMware has given any sort of deadline. I guess this means the majority of us will be rebuilding our company labs and truly testing migrations from ESX to ESXi.

All the info on vSphere 4.1 can be found HERE.
