Free Virtualization Icon set

For a recent personal project I have been working on (vMetrics for WordPress), I had a requirement for some Icons, all virtualization related. I had a quick look around but couldn’t find many that had no strings attached. I therefore decided to create my own set. These are all original and I have created them myself. You will of course recognise some of the designs from the vSphere Client – these I used as inspiration and re-created from scratch.



Feel free to use these in your own projects, charts, or presentations. All that I ask is that you drop me a comment below to let me know if they were useful or not 🙂

VMware vSphere 5 is now Generally Available


Some big news – the recently announced vSphere 5 is now generally available for download. I have been waiting with baited breath for this and will be giving it a try in my home lab soon. It may be a while yet until the company I work for moves in for the upgrade, so hopefully in the meantime I will be able to learn a fair amount for when the upgrade process does begin.


You can grab vSphere 5 from the VMware site here.


Are you running vSphere 5 already? How has your testing been? Has anybody upgraded from a previous version of ESX or ESXi? Drop your feedback in the comments section to discuss!
