vSphere 5.1 Essentials or Essentials Plus Kit with VMware Go Pro Included.

The first one concerns new customers. If you’re small shop and thinking to buy first Vmware Package. There are two packages for an SMB. The Essentials and Essentials Plus. The Essentials Plus package has been enhanced with new product called vSphere Data Protection , vSphere Replication and vSphere Storage Appliance. You might be interested by this offer from VMware, since they’re giving away a Go Pro.

In fact they’re offering the VMware Go Pro patching service. It’s a patching online service which patches not only the OS but also applications. I have blogged about it in details in my article here - VMware Go Pro new version supports patching of 3rd party applications.

Every purchase of an Essentials Kit includes VMware Go Pro (30 VM coverage) for cloud-based patch management. Buy vSphere 5.1 Essentials or Essentials Plus Kit and get VMware Go Pro Service for Free.

The offer is available now and will be expiring by the end of the year. (2012-12-16)
