SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for VMware End of Availability


If you did not know, when you purchase licenses of VMware vSphere (Standard, Enterprise or Enterprise+) you would be entitled to licenses of SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLES) for VMware.


Well, this offering will be removed on July 25th, 2014, when VMware will be announcing the End of Availability (EOA) of it.

Since it will not be available for purchase anymore, for how long can I still use the product ?
To the ones who acquire it, for as long as you want.

VMware will provide support and fixes for a limited period of time, there will also be a Long Term Service Pack Support, check KB2080129 for all the details.

For a long term solution I advise you all to check the options directly with SUSE.

See you
