vSphere 5.5 & vCloud Suite 5.5
So just listening to the announcements at the first key note of VMWorld 2013 in San Francisco.
The first big announcement is the release of vSphere 5.5 and also vCloud Suite 5.5.
New items include the fact that VMDK disk sizes can now be up to 64TB in size (well actually just less than 64TB) which brings it in line with Hyper-V… this is supported on both VMFS and NFS datastores (although ext3 partitions can still only go to 15TB).
They are saying that everything has been doubled… 2x the number of virtual machines etc. on most elements of the products.
VMware has also redesigned their website in line with the new look being seen as part of VMware NOW.
I’ll delve more into the exact details of the release as I find more out.
