February 3rd, 2015 No comments

Install & Upgrade

  • Enhanced Install and Upgrade Capabilities – Windows vCenter installation experience has been enhanced with additional capabilities including custom ports, custom paths, uninstall and error messaging improvements. Furthermore, all upgrade paths from Windows vCenter 5.0 and up are now supported. vCenter Server Appliance now has a guided installer. Separate ISOs and scripted installation for both vCenter Server for Windows and vCSA reduce the overall download time and improve automation capabilities respectively.


  • Expanded Support for New Hardware, Architectures, and Guest Operating Systems – Expanded support for the latest x86 chip sets, devices and drivers. Added support for FreeBSD 10.0 and Asianux 4 SP3 guest operating systems.
  • Increased Scalability – Increased configuration maximums in vSphere 6: Cluster maximums have increased to support up to 64 nodes and 6,000 VMs. Virtual Machines will support up to 128 vCPUs and 4TB vRAM and Hosts will support up to 480 physical CPUs, 12 TB RAM, 64 TB datastores, 1000 VMs and 32 Serial Ports. Increased support for virtual graphics including Nvidia GPU.
  • Instant Clone – Technology built in vSphere 6 that lays that foundation to rapidly clone and deploy virtual machines, as much as 10x faster than what is currently possible today.
