Wow, another VMworld just went by? This year was great. So much is changing. These are the highlights from VMworld this year:
2. VMware workspace suite for Horizon and Airwatch.
4. Bummer, vSphere 6 is still beta. You can sign up for the beta and test it out! Nice stuff like 4 vCPU FT, vMotion changes, the web client has improved, vMotion across vCenters and virtual datacenters (just to name a few things)
5. Virtual Volumes (vVols).
6. VMware integrated OpenStack. (VIO)
8. vCloud Air. There will be a government services platform coming in September. In 2015 there will be an on demand version, but there will be a beta available soon. EMC Viper has a tech preview of object storage.
11. VMware vCAC 6.1 will arrive in September.
12. VSAN version 2.0 is out, but in beta.
This was a great VMworld this year. I had a chance to meet up with some really smart guys. It was a great pleasure to see what all the storage vendors are doing in the market place. It will take some time to digest all of these great announcements coming from VMware.
