Posted June 18, 2018 10:21:31 ESXi 5.4, ESXi 4.9 and ESXi 3.6 have now been released for both VMware vCenter and ESX servers.
The most important news to know is that ESXi 7.0 is now officially supported, although it has not been officially confirmed yet.
The ESXi version is currently available for download on the VMware website, and it will be supported for the next few weeks.
ESXi is still a work in progress, so the update may take a while to roll out to users.
This version of ESXi also includes many security fixes, which will be important for security professionals.
There is also an important new feature, which lets you access the ESXi command line from the web interface of a virtual machine, which is a great addition to VMware’s ESXi support.
