VMware vSphere And View Next Version Features
After the VMware Partner Exchange 2010, more and more information are starting to surface on the web about a possible future roadmap of VMware vSphere and VMware View.
From what I’ve read these are the features that will be available:
- Transparent Memory Compression
- IO DRS
- better VMotion performance
- higher virtual desktop consolidation ratios
- improved integration between View and ThinApp: users will be able to package desktop and server applications in ThinApp virtual machines.
Rumors said that IO DRS seems to be well beyond the lab
Everything seems really interesting to me, and even if not all features will be released, I think that the next version are very promising.
If you want to read more about that rumors there are a couple of summary articles from Tech Target:
