VMware Wants You... To Beta Test vSphere

VMware is looking for candidates to Beta test the upcoming VMware vSphere release.  And that's where you come in.  Do you want the unique opportunity to have your voice heard and help shape the future direction of vSphere?

Folks who want to participate in the program can now indicate their interest by filling out this simple form. The vSphere team will grant access to the program to selected candidates in stages. This vSphere Beta Program leverages a private Beta community to download software and share information.  They will provide discussion forums, webinars, and service requests to enable you to share your feedback.

What is VMware Looking for in a Beta User?

The target audience are VMware customers who have deployed vSphere 5.5 and 6.0 in a portion of their environment.  Participants are expected to:

  • Install beta software within 3 days of receiving access to the beta product
  • Provide feedback within the first 4 weeks of the beta program
  • Submit Support Requests for bugs, issues and feature requests
  • Complete surveys and beta test assignments
  • Participate in the private beta discussion forum and conference calls

And online acceptance of the Master Software Beta Test Agreement will be required prior to visiting the Private Beta Community.

Some of the many reasons to participate in this beta opportunity:

You can expect to download, install, and test vSphere Beta software in your environment or get invited to try new features in a VMware hosted environment.  All testing is free-form and you as Beta participants are encouraged to use the software in ways that interest you.  This will provide VMware with valuable insight into how you use vSphere in real-world conditions and with real-world test cases, enabling them to better align the product with your business needs.

As a Beta member, you will also get to:

  • Receive early access to the vSphere Beta products
  • Interact with the vSphere Beta team consisting of Product Managers, Engineers, Technical Support, and Technical Writers
  • Provide direct input on product functionality, configurability, usability, and performance
  • Provide feedback influencing future products, training, documentation, and services
