VMware version 6.0 products announced
Yesterday VMware announced version 6 of their products including vSphere 6, Virtual SAN 6, etc. I’ve read a bit on some of the products and to me it seems more of an evolution and less of a revolution. I’m also seeing similar concepts being introduced that Microsoft already implemented in Hyper-V. All in all I think the competition is good for the consumers. If you want to learn more about the VMware version 6.0 products, take a look at these sites:
- VMware Unveils Industry’s First Unified Platform for the Hybrid Cloud
- Unveiling One Cloud to Build, Run and Manage Any Application
- Introducing VMware vSphere 6 – The Foundation for Hybrid Cloud
- vSphere 6.0 vExpert Blog Articles Covering What’s New, Installation, VVOLS, vMotion, Web Client and much much more
- New VMware vSphere 6 Training Courses
- More can be found at http://blogs.vmware.com/ and you can ofcourse also check out the many top community blogs on vLaunchPad.
Why I hate the recertification program
For some time now I knew that VMware would release version 6.0 of their products, but in the meanwhile I’m required to recertify before March 10th. I would’ve preferred to spend my time on version 6.0 of their products instead or on other technologies instead of being forced to focus it on version 5.5 to keep my certification status. Therefore my suggestion to VMware is to ensure that the recertification requirements take into account releases of new products. The ICT work field is already moving at an extremely fast rate and it is already hard enough to keep up without having to recertify (for multiple vendors and certifications).
