VMworld2013 - what an amazing start!
Over 20,000 attendees all in one place teaming about the latest innovations in virtualization. They have announced the release of version 5.5! We were initially disappointed that they only released vSphere version 5.5 instead of version 6 as we were hoping for another great jump with this next release. THEN they announced VMware NSX which is network virtualization similiar to ESX for servers; we now have a proper hypervisor for the network! This is going to simplify the setup and management of datacenter networks, which will make things much easier! Check back, there will be additional updates coming.
