If you have an existing VMware Infrastructure 3 environment, upgrading to vSphere -- also known as ESX and ESXi 4 -- will probably be on the agenda at some point if it hasn’t already. But before jumping into an upgrade of this caliber there are many considerations and requirements that you should be aware of, including hardware, software and database requirements, third-party software compatibility considerations and compatibility with other VMware products.
