VMware License Is Latest Version What If I Needed a version Behind Or More?

I get this so often and decide to just clear this up.

In any ISV or software vendors where you purchase their software, the license received will always be the latest.  This applies the same for any VMware products.

You won't want to purchase something from the market to find that it was 1 year ago right?

So what if your environment is running an older version and you just acquire new licenses which are a newer version than yours when you want to scale?

Don't worry, you can always go to your VMware license portal and select a number of licenses that you want to downgrade to.  The version available is the Products version that is still supported.

You can also upgrade your older version of the product to the later or latest version as long your licenses are still under Support & Subscription (SnS).

At the time of writing, using vSphere version 5.5 is still supported so the lowest version will be 5.5.  This also to give you a reminder, never to run an out of support version of any software in your environment as you will not be able to scale and have no support at the same time.
