VMworld 2014 Wrap Up

VMworld 2014

This was my 3rd VMworld.  I had a great time this year.  The Opening Act, vBrownags and regular sessions were great this year.  I went to a lot of vendor parties and had lots of fun.  I stepped out of my comfort zone and talked to people I didn’t know.  It is always a great opportunity to attend VMworld and I am grateful that the company I work for sent me this year.

Here are some notes I took from the conference and links associated with the topic –

  • vSphere 6 beta – Publicly announced features
    • Fault Tolerance in vSphere 6 will support 4 CPUs
    • vSphere 6 will support cross vCenter vMotion
    • Content Library – Centralized repository for VM templates, scripts, and ISOs
    • vSphere 6 long distance vMotion is enhanced
    • Using VMware NSX, network properties will now be vMotioned as well when using long distance vMotion.
    • Virtual Datacenter – A new abstraction layer that lets you join multiple vSphere clusters together so you can use the same policies across clusters
    • Won’t be released until sometime in 2015.  Vmware has changed there release cycle

VMworld 2015Lastly, VMware already announced that VMworld 2015 will be Aug 30 -Sept 3 in San Francisco.  After 3 years in a row, I really wish VMworld was going to be at a different location.  No matter where it is, I am always excited to go and can’t wait till next year.
