Many customers already running at vSphere 6.7 suite of products which brings some new cool features/updates that are targeted for seamless cloud experience. VMware vSphere 6.7 is the efficient and secure platform for hybrid clouds, fueling digital transformation by delivering simple and efficient management at scale, comprehensive built-in security, a universal application platform, and seamless hybrid cloud experience. With the rapid adoption of public clouds based on the vSphere platform through VMware Cloud Provider Program partners, VMware Cloud on AWS, and other public cloud providers, VMware is committed to delivering a seamless hybrid cloud experience for enterprises.
vSphere 6.7 introduces vCenter Server Hybrid Linked Mode, which enables users to have unified visibility and manageability across an on-premises vSphere environment running on one version and a public cloud environment based on the vSphere platform, such as VMware Cloud on AWS, running on a different vSphere version. This ensures that the fast pace of innovation and the introduction of new capabilities in public clouds based on the vSphere platform do not force the customer to constantly update and upgrade their on-premises vSphere environment. vSphere 6.7 also introduces cross-cloud hot and cold migration, which further enhances the ease of management across on-premises and cloud infrastructure and enables a seamless and nondisruptive hybrid cloud experience for enterprises.
vSphere 6.7 Update 1 adds support for vSphere Platinum but it includes a number of exciting new features. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade to vSphere 6.7 then start planning your upgrade. If you’re just waiting to finally get rid of flash or your external PSCs, have the ability to more efficiently manage your HCI environment, or vMotion your NVIDIA vGPU workloads, then start getting prepared to upgrade 🙂
