SVVP Certifications for VMware vSphere

VMware has completed Microsoft Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP) certifications for both VMware vSphere 4.0 as well as ESX/ESXi 3.5 Update 4. This brings the list of SVVP-certified products to include:

  • VMware vSphere 4.0 (ESX 4.0 and ESXi 4.0)
  • VMware ESX 3.5 Update 4
  • VMware ESXi 3.5 Update 4
  • VMware ESX 3.5 Update 3
  • VMware ESXi 3.5 Update 3
  • VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2

According to my contacts within VMware—and many of you have probably heard the same—the company is seeking to achieve SVVP certification for every ESX and ESXi release from 3.5 Update 2 onward for the maximum supported configuration of both CPUs and RAM on both Intel and AMD platforms. That includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server.
