VMware Update Day!

Some of my favorite times of the year is when we release updates across the board.  So much cool stuff, I don’t even know where to start.  Here is a list of all the new releases:

vSphere 6.0 Update2

ESXi v6.0U2

What’s New

  • High Ethernet Link Speed: ESXi 6.0 Update 2 supports 25 G and 50 G ethernet link speeds.
  • VMware Host Client: The VMware Host Client is an HTML5 client that is used to connect to and manage single ESXi hosts. It can be used to perform administrative tasks to manage host resources, such as virtual machines, networking, and storage. The VMware Host Client can also be helpful to troubleshoot individual virtual machines or hosts when vCenter Server and the vSphere Web Client are unavailable. For more information about VMware Host Client, see VMware Host Client 1.0 Release Notes.
  • vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) Enhancement:
    • ESXi 6.0 Update 2 supports the IO Filter VASA Provider in a pure IPv6 environment. For additional information, see the Resolved Issues section
    • ESXi 6.0 Update 2 supports the VMIOF versions 1.0 and 1.1. For additional information, see the Resolved Issues section.
