VMWare ESXi 5.1/5.5 certification

it is a pity that HP does not do VMWare ESXi certification for servers that a quite pritty modern like HP Proliant DL385 G5: the certification ends here with ESXi 5.0.




Does HP publish which policy is applied for ESXi certification?

Re: VMWare ESXi 5.1/5.5 certification



Are you referring to HP VMware Certification like VCP?

Or are you looking for which Gen8 server supports VMware ESXi 5.5


ProLiant Server VMware Support Matrix.

Customize VMware ESXi Images for HP ProLiant Servers.

Technical white paper HP custom ESXi images for ProLiant servers.

Technical white paper VMware vSphere 5 and HP ProLiant servers.

Hello Tom,

you have to contact your HP sales representative and ask for certification for older servers. Once we succeded with this.


Or - go to Dell, they certify all servers, even more than 5 years old.
