What's happened?
VMware ESXi 6.5.0 & 6.7.0 went End of Life on October 15, 2022. In a recent publication by Lansweeper they identified over 45,000 ESXi Servers running out of support versions. This data came from a snapshot in September 2022 consisting of 79,000 ESXi Servers across +6000 different organisations.

The snapshot data can be seen here:

Am I affected?
If you are running any ESXi versions within your organisation released prior to version 7.x then yes, you are more than likely affected.

What can we do?
VMware recommend upgrading to version 7.x as soon as possible to get your environment back into support.

Can you help us?
Absolutely! Workspace IT understand the pressures and time scales often put-upon IT teams and endeavor to "plug the hole" left by teams not having the required time to complete all the BAU infrastructure upgrades required in an organisation.

How can you help?
Get in touch with Workspace IT, and one of our friendly consultants will be happy to assess your environment, talk through your options and come up with a plan to get you back under support. Not only that, but we can also discuss future proofing and a maintenance plan to keep your infrastructure services up to date.
