vSphere 6.5 GA

VMware has just GA their vSphere 6.5 and there are some really good enhancements such as Native high availability for vCenter Improved HTML 5 based vSphere client VM-level encryption Easy migration from Windows vCenter to vCenter appliance plus much much more I have included some links here to the key documents to read through as a starter in the order that I feel I would normally read: First point for me is to read the release notes http://pubs.vmware.com/Release_Notes/en/vsphere/65/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-65-release-notes.html   White paper for whats new in vSphere 6.5 http://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/whitepaper/vsphere/vmw-white-paper-vsphr-whats-new-6-5.pdf   Check what VMware products are compatibility with vSphere 6.5 so you don't get caught out thinking just upgrading to vSphere 6.5 it will work with all your existing VMware products. ie If you was using Site Recovery Manager (SRM) you would need to upgrade SRM
