Where to find vCenter Server Appliance 5.0 Update 1

Last week I’ve been installing a vSphere cluster at a customer site. All the hosts are running VMware vSphere 5.0 Update 1. The customer also wants to use the vCenter Server Appliance as alternative to a Windows based VM running VMware vCenter Server. After a one hour search at the VMware Download site I couldn’t find it…

So where is it? Well, it’s not strange I couldn’t find it because it isn’t there… As you can read in the vCenter Server 5.0 Update 1 release notes the appliance will be available later this year;

Oke, so what now? If you don’t have to use the new features and fixes in Update 1 you can safely use the vCenter Appliance 5.0 which you can download over here.
