VMWorld 2009 Lab notes:VSphere Advanced Topics

New features, best of, advanced features…
1. You can link virtual centers as one.
2. Licensing is now via just a key.
3. Look and feel is changed. It is much more icon driven.
4. Host profiles have been added. You can take a baseline of a host, and then deploy the profile.
5. You can now create a distributed virtual switch. Network state and vlans stay with the vm as it is vmotioned. You can only get this with enterprise plus.

This is a clever idea. Rent out a whole configured vmware infrastructure. That is some very nice hardware to try out….
