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.

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.

This post will explore how Dell and VMware are working together to provide a modern approach to deployment. At VMworld 2018, Dell announced a new PC configuration service, which allows organizations to ship devices preconfigured with company apps and settings directly from the factory to their users. This new service, called Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE, dramatically reduces the amount of time IT spends staging devices and minimizes end user downtime. The Shift from Network-Based to Cloud-Based Deployment The traditional approach to prepare a PC for work is time consuming, labor intensive and expensive. … [Read more...] about Dell and VMware Re-imagine PC Deployment Possibilities
VMware has released a new security advisory VMSA-2018-0019: Horizon 6, 7, and Horizon Client for Windows updates address an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. This advisory documents the remediation of one important issue: Horizon 6, 7, and Horizon Client for Windows contain an out-of-bounds read vulnerability in the Message Framework library.
