Mar 14 2015 Back in 2013 I did a post comparing number of days between major vSphere releases that highlighted VMware’s fast pace of delivering new vSphere versions. That fast pace has now slowed down considerably with vSphere 6.0 as VMware wasn’t able to keep up with the zippy one year cycle they had fallen into. Now with the release of vSphere 6.0 we’re back to around the same numbers of days that it was at years ago with VI3. One of the reasons for the delay was most likely due to the engineering of the new Virtual Volumes (VVOLs) storage architecture which took considerable time and effort to complete. Whether that will continue or not as yet to be seen, the next release of vSphere may not be as big as this one was. VMware now has many of their new architectural changes in place so they may speed up again based on the development efforts required for the next vSphere release.

vSAN HCI lifecycle management improvements Updates are an essential part of the day to day operations in a data center. VMware has been focused on making updates to a vSAN cluster as effortless as possible. vSAN 6.7 U1 centralizes all updating of vSAN and associated hardware through VMware Update Manager or VUM. This means that all ESXi, driver, and firmware be available for update in a single location.Additionally, vSAN clusters running specific OEM builds of ESXi can be supported in VUM, as 6.7 U1 will support the use of custom ISOs from these vendors. For environments that prevent vCenter from accessing the internet, there are now guided workflows to help these environments running vCenter without internet connectivity. This edition of vSAN also makes the upgrade process more robust should an issue be detected. The upgrade process will immediately check for issues after the update, and should an issue be identified, the upgrade process will stop, and the host in question will … [Read more...] about VMware Update Manager Firmware Updates in vSAN 6.7 U1

Up to now, VMware certification names have aligned to major product releases (for example, VCP6.5-DCV is mapped to vSphere 6.5). This has introduced some challenges as VMware product versions have become more disparate. For example: Different product versions create inconsistencies across tracks. Example: What do we name a certification that may be based on NSX-T 2.x? Varying release dates of certifications based on product versions makes it harder to plan when to certify. Example: When will the next version be available, and on what product version? To help resolve these inconsistencies and make it easier to identify the most recent certification version, the VMware certification program is making some changes. Moving forward, we will identify new certifications by the year they are earned. This will make it easier for both certification holders and potential employers to immediately identify how current a certification is. For example: Instead of: VMware Certified … [Read more...] about We are changing the way we name VMware certifications. The Year Makes It Clear.
