vSphere 6.0 – The Future Is Here!

vSphere 6.0 has been officially announced. See the VMware vSphere Blog article and the What’s New PDF.

New features that immediately stand out to me include:
· Virtual Volumes
· Long Distance vMotion
· Cross vSwitch and vCenter vMotion
· Content Library
· Storage IOPS reservations
· Virtual SAN 6

The VMTN Blog has posted a page linking to over 80 articles posted by vExperts on the vSphere 6.0 announcement, it’s new features, and it’s deployment. Until I sit down and spend some quality time with the release I can’t add a great deal to this wealth of information. My suggestion is to pick through these articles looking at the features and changes of particular interest to you.
