VMware vSphere 6.0: What’s New?

This blockbuster release contains the following new features and enhancements, many of which are industry-first features.  So what new features have arrived with VMware vSphere 6.0?

vMotion Improvements: You can now perform non-disruptive live migration of workloads across distributed switches and vCenter Servers and over distances of up to 100ms RTT. The astonishing 10x increase in RTT offered in long-distance vMotion now makes it possible for data centers physically located in New York and London for example to migrate live workloads between one another!

Cross vCenter vMotion: Copy and move virtual machines between hosts on different vCenter Servers in a single action!  In vSphere 5, migrating VMs between different instances of vCenter was not possible.

Long Distance vMotion: This allows the migration of applications from one datacenter to another datacenter located across the country.

Virtual Volumes (VVols): VVOL technology has finally arrived from VMware with several supported storage vendors. Virtual volumes or VVOLs provide storage for VMware virtual machines that currently need a LUN or other storage abstractions requiring a dedicated storage administrator. To summarize this feature storage arrays publish their services to ESXi using VASA (VMware APIs for Storage Awareness) 2.0 APIs and VMs request a selected service from the service availability list.

Increased Scalability: VMware increased configuration maximums and virtual machines can now support up to 128 virtual CPUs (vCPUs) and 4TB virtual RAM (vRAM). Plus hosts can now support up to 480 CPU and 12TB of RAM, 2,048 virtual machines per host, and 64 nodes per cluster!

Fault Tolerance (up to 4-vCPUs): Support for 64GB RAM and 4 vCPUs will be covered under with fault tolerance

Amazing Graphics: The new NVIDIA GRID vGPU is now integrated to deliver full benefits of NVIDIA hardware-accelerated graphics to virtualized solutions.

    Great post!
    Now question for you, since FT is a “real” solution, can we lets say use it to have a “live” version of the vCenter (either appliance or Windows) ?
    So in case the it dies for what ever reason?
    Or this FT cant be appliend to vCenter?
