with 3 comments

Как стало известно новая верся vSphere ожидается 13 Июля. VMware подтвердил cписок функций и нововведений которые будут доступны в следующем релизе vSphere,

Ниже список может быть неполным:

  • Storage I/O can be shaped by I/O shares and limits through the new Storage I/O Control quality of service (QoS) feature
  • Network I/O can be partitioned through a new QoS engine that distinguish between virtual machines, vMotion, Fault Tolerance (FT) and IP storage traffic.
  • Memory compression will allow to compress RAM pages instead of swapping on disk, improving virtual machines performance.
  • Distribute Resource Scheduling (DRS) now can follow affinity rules defining a subset of hosts where a virtual machine can be placed
  • Virtual sockets can now have multiple virtual CPUs. Each virtual CPU will appear as a single core in the guest operating system.
  • A team physical network interface cards in a vNetwork Distributed Switch can now dynamically load balance traffic.
  • Health check status and operational dashboard are available for HA configurations.
  • vSphere Client is no more part of the ESX and ESXi installation packages. At the end of the installation process administrators are redirected online to download the client.
  • ESXi installation can be scripted. The script can start from a CD or over a PXE boot source, and can install the hypervisor on local or remote disks.
  • ESX can boot from iSCSI targets (support for iBFT)
  • NFS performance stats are included in esxtop and vCenter Server, as well as through the vSphere SDK.
  • Virtual machines serial ports redirection over the network
  • Support for up to 4 vMotion concurrent live migrations in 1GbE networks and up to 8 concurrent live migrations in 10GbE networks
  • Support for USB pass-through (virtual machines can use ESX/ESXi local USB devices)
  • Support for administrator password change in Host Profiles
  • Support for FT in DRS clusters with with Enhanced vMotion Compatibility (EVC)
  • Support for iSCSI TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) network interface cards (both 10GB an 1GB)
  • Support for 8GB Fibre Chanell HBAs
  • Support for IPsec on IPv6 network configurations
  • Support for multiple Data Recovery virtual appliances
  • Support for Microsoft Volume Shadow Service (VSS) in Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 guest operating systems for vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP)
  • Update Manager (VUM) can now patch additional 3rd party modules for ESX (like EMC PowerPath)
  • Virtual to Virtual (V2) migration for offline Hyper-V virtual machines in vCenter Converter
  • ESX and ESXi direct support for Microsoft Active Directory through Likewise technology integration
  • Support for Intel Xeon 7500 / 5600 / 3600 CPU series (this includes EVC support)
  • Support for AMD Opteron 4000 / 6000 CPU series (this includes EVC support)

Сonfiguration limits vSphere 4.1:

  • 3,000 virtual machines per cluster (compared to 1,280 in vSphere 4.0)
  • 1,000 hosts per vCenter Server (compared to 300)
  • 15,000 registered VMs per vCenter Server (compared to 4,500)
  • 10,000 concurrently powered-on VMs per vCenter Server (compared to 3,000)
  • 120 concurrent Virtual Infrastructure Clients per vCenter Server (compared to 30)
  • 500 hosts per virtual Datacenter object (compared to 100)
  • 5,000 virtual machines per virtual Datacenter object (compared to 2,500)

И многое другое…..

  2. Обновил vCenter, нет не обновил, а я его перенес, он у меня был на 2003 x86, а как вы знаете новый VC только 64 битный, поставил 2008 R2 и на него перенес, базу также перенес на SQL 2008 R2, во время инстанции он просто обновил ее.Дальше обновил сами хосты, через Update Manager указав архив с обновлением.

  3. Вообщем процесс прошел без запинки!, можно обновляется!только непонравилось то что Update Manager использует 32 ODBC а vCenter 64, по отдельности прописывать, еще и тулза чекер тоже 32 битная и в ODBC 32 нужно тогда оба прописыать. Еще не понял почему после исталяции vCenter был запушен под моим именем.В Остальнов все отлично!
