Earlier today VMware released a new version of their flagship product, vSphere. The new release includes 650 new features and innovations, most notably VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) 6, vSphere Virtual Volumes, and multi vCPU Fault Tolerance support. We'll cover the new and upgraded vSphere 6 features in another blog post.
There are a couple of back-end changes in the latest version of vSphere, so if you are thinking of upgrading in short order, please refer to this support article KB2110293 before starting the process.
An additional word of caution: if you use Veeam Backup & Replication (or any other virtualization-aware backup product) check your product's supported software versions. The official Veeam twitter account posted today that they will have a update for their flagship product soon to introduce vSphere 6.0 support.
If you have any questions regarding the upgrade process, please contact us. We'd be happy to work with you to answer your questions.
