vSphere 6.7 Design: A new vSphere Upgrade section on vSphere Central

It is great to know that VMware continues to work on improving vSphere Central.

For those who are not familiar with this resource, vSphere Central provides information which compliments an official documentation in terms of the product features and best practices. It also helps with configuring and administering different components of vSphere 6.5 and 6.7.

vSphere Central library is divided into the following categories:

  • vCenter Server,
  • Security,
  • ESXi Host and Virtual Machine,
  • Resource Management and Availability,
  • Operations Management,
  • Developer and Automation Interfaces and the list is growing.

Now it includes a new section dedicated to upgrading to vSphere 6.7.

vSphere-Central-01

As per VMware, this document helps with vSphere upgrade, including pre-upgrade considerations, upgrade process and post-upgrade considerations.

It is worth reading it when planning for an upgrade, preparing for the official exams, or the VCDX defence. As a bonus, all content can be exported to the PDF format if needed with one click!

vSAN 6.x: vSAN 2018 Quarterly Advisory for Q1

It is probably going to to be the shortest post in this blog.

VMware has just released a new document called ‘vSAN 2018 Quarterly Advisory for Q1‘ which includes information about resolved and outstanding issue, as well as available workarounds.

If you are working on upgrading the vSAN environment, that is worth reading.

VMware: StorageHub Portal Refresh

For those of us who have been interested in getting explicit information about VMware vSAN, Site Recovery Manager, and vSphere storage in general, VMware StorageHub was a unique source of technical documentation.

It is great to see the vendor working on improving this portal with the design and user interface refresh.

Now it is possible to choose between English (US) and Mandarine languages for some of the articles.

All seems quite logical, and I personally like navigation and how fast search works.

Well done, VMware!
