Yesterday VMware announced VMware vSphere 6 beta publicly available. In order to participate you have to follow this link on VMware Community pages https://www.vmware.com/publicbeta/VMware_vSphere.
After registration you will be able to download all binaries. Even though that this beta is open to public you have to remember key rules.
Please remember that this vSphere Beta is private even though it is open to everyone. Do not share information from this Beta Program with those not in the Beta Program. What you learn and see in this Beta is meant to be kept confidential per the Master Software Beta Test Agreement and Program Rules.
After you join beta you will be able to discuss it on VMware Communities pages, discuss it between other participants, log support requests in VMware, take surveys attend webinars. In my opinion it is great opportunity to be ahead of quite a lot of people to gain quite fresh knowledge about product. As you might suspect final release might not be that different from beta. In earlier years all VCP’s were able to take exam of newer version without course requirement. You might as well receive invitation to beta VCP exam - you never know it 🙂
