VMware vSphere 6 Awesome Features – Rajesh Poojary

VMware had always given the best in features , but we were looking for some more features from VMware and here it comes  with vSphere 6 🙂

I have listed few features hope you will love these to know.

vSphere 6 Features and Enhancements:

1)      VMware cluster now supports up to 64 nodes in cluster and 8,000 VM’s.

2)       ESXi Hosts now supports up to : 1000 VM’s ,12 TB RAM , 480 CPU’s and 64 TB datastores.

3)      VM’s hosted now supports up to 4TB vRAM and 128 vCPU’s.

4)      vSphere Fault Tolerance: Here comes the long awaited features which can save lots of engineer by doing extra hours of work and can help mission critical applications to keep always up.

a)      Now FT supports up to 4 vCPU’s and 64 GB RAM.

b)      Earlier versions had limitations of not been able to take snapshots of FT enabled VM’s, this limitation has now been removed and Snapshot is possible of the FT enabled VM’s in vSphere 6, thereby enabling some of the VM backup software’s which relies on Snaphot’s to work  FT enabled VM’s.

c)       In earlier version FT VM’s should reside in same shared storage and using the same disk, but in vSphere 6, Primary and Secondary VM has it’s own .VMX and own .VMDK files, which can be placed in different datastores and are in continuously sync with each other thereby reducing performance issues also.
