VMware has updated their supported Products list with a new version (updated at February 1,2017) of VMware Lifecycle Product Matrix document.

Finally this document has become smart and short, with few pages and highlighted in a right way both the products version is within 6 months of End of General Support or End of Technical Guidance and also products version that has gone past its End of General Support.

Old products are no more listed, so for example vSphere 4.x is not in this document bacause has gone end of General Support Life on May 21, 2014 and end of Technical Guidance on May 21, 2016!

Other VMware vSphere deadlines are:

  • vSphere 5.0 and 5.1: General Support has gone on 2016/08/24 and end of Technical Guidance will be on 2018/08/24
  • vSphere 5.5: General Support until 2018/09/19 and Technical Guidance until 2020/09/19
  • vSphere 6.0 and 6.5: General Support until 2020/03/12 and Technical Guidance until 2022/03/12
