    We’re pleased to announce the release of vSphere 8, the Enterprise Workload Platform. The new release means we’ll have new, updated vSphere 8 courses coming your way in December. Be sure to mark your calendar. Here are key facts you need to know.

    Software bundles 

    • In October VMware will start offering vSphere 8 software through the VMware evaluate portal, including a 30-day evaluation license key. 
    • The vSphere 7 software bundles will still be available for download for a limited time through a dedicated process for IT Academies. 

    Academic Evaluation Licenses 

    • We will start offering the vSphere 8 academic evaluation license keys both on Kivuto and Brightspace portals  in the November 2022 timeframe. 
    • On that same day, the vSphere 7 academic evaluation license keys will start their end-of-life track and will be removed upon the next major release of vSphere. 
    • Also on December 1, 2022, the vSphere 6.7 academic evaluation license keys will complete their end-of-life track and will no longer be available. 

    Course content 

    • The new vSphere 8 courses will be released commercially in November. 
    • We aim to offer the new vSphere 8 courses in our academic portals (both Kivuto and Brightspace) on the December 1, 2022. 
    • For instructors, we will also offer a “What’s new: vSphere 7 to 8” course in the Train-the-Trainer group on VMware Customer Connect Learning. 
    • From the time we offer the new vSphere 8 courses, the vSphere 7 courses will start their end-of-life track, to be removed 1 year later. 

    Course labs 

    • Our academic lab partner NDG aims to offer the new vSphere 8 course labs through the latest version of Netlab+ and through their cloud lab offering in the March timeframe. 
    • NDG will also be able to support existing Netlab+ users with older vSphere software bundles to deploy their older Netlab+ deployments. 

    Certification exams 

    • The new PSE exam for the VCP-DCV certification based on vSphere 8 will be available in the January timeframe. 
    • At the same time as the launch of the new exam based on vSphere 8, the current PSE exam for the VCP-DCV certification based on vSphere 7 will start its end-of-life track and will be removed from the IT Academy exam catalogue 1 year later.
