vSphere 6.7 – Overview, Videos and Download Links

VMware has just made vSphere 6.7 Generally Available!

What’s new?

As part of vSphere, we have updates to all core components, notably:

  • ESXi
  • vCenter Server Appliance
  • Update Manager
  • HTMl5 Client

This week has also seen vRealize Operations & vSAN announce version 6.7 also.

 

What am I most interested in?

I’ll be blogging about some of these things later in the week so stay tuned or follow on Twitter @Virtualg_UK for updates.

  • vCenter Server 6.7 now supports Enhanced Link Mode (ELM) with embedded PSCs. No longer do you need to deploy external PSCs simply to have ELM.
  • Update Manager support for upgrades with no hardware reboot
  • Major Fault Tolerance Improvements (This is a standard feature, make the most of that license fee!)
  • Instant Clones!
  • Interoperability with other VMware and 3rd party products and Services (VMWonAWS anyone?)
