A new version of VMware vSphere was introduced yesterday, in addition to enhancing the security of the software, new features and much-needed improvements. This release is expected to be publicly available by the end of the month or sooner than expected, and it's better to now be prepared to provide the conditions for installing and configuring vSphere 6. 7 U2 by reviewing this new upgrade. But let's look at the features and features of this version!
VMware vSphere 6. 7 Update 2
In this version, vSphere is no longer supported by the Platform Service Controller deployment architecture as external, and as vSphere 6. 7 u1 is introduced, vCenter Server separate instances can be connected to a shared domain SSO via PSC Embedded. In this way, using the 6.7 u2 version, you can use vCenter to manage all of the virtual infrastructure components in datacenters. In this case, you do not need to configure the distribution of vCenter Server There is no virtualization layer and the architecture of the deployment will be much better available with speed and performance. Also a tool previously developed to turn external PSCs into internal ones so that past customers can upgrade their existing infrastructure to its new architecture and features, it is now available on the vCenter Server web site, and this migration from the old versions to vSphere 6. 7 u2 will be executed directly from vCenter Server.
One of the key issues of this update is the support for Windows Server 2019 and the Redhat Enterprise 8 distribution, which will make Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 more likely to move beyond the migration path to secure and stable services next year. . In addition to supporting new operating systems and providing a new version of VMware Tools (10.3) that integrates the protection features of the App Defense tool into VMware Tools , it is possible to update the VMXNet3 virtual machine driver for Windows Server 2016 and 2019 through Windows Update is provided to upgrade without rebooting the virtual machine.
In the vSphere 6. 7 v2 user interface, new features have been added, including File-based vCenter Backup , vSphere Health , and improvements to the vSphere Update Manager 's update process .
Setting up information services like SAP HANA, which utilizes the processing load and the high amount of memory to process information, has always been one of the barriers and dangers of accessing this style of service to the virtualization world and benefiting from these unique features of this environment. But VMware, in vSphere 6. 7 u2 with the introduction of version 15 hardware virtual machines may run such services with a capacity of 6 TB of virtual memory allocation, virtual processor core 256, and can be used to interface with communication speeds of 40 and 100 Gbps Has provided. The issues outlined here are just some of the distinctive features of the vSphere 6. 7 U2 version, and details of the feature list of this version are based on its functionality with the App Defense tool (vSphere Platinum) and the upgrade style will be released to this release.
This version of vSphere update has been well-documented with many security threats, as well as support for a new range of operating systems, processing systems and databases, to ensure the low performance of the information services within the virtual machines in large, medium and small sizes. Upgrading and activating the new capabilities introduced in this release can primarily improve the level of security of the virtual infrastructure and, in addition, provide a solid and stable move to secure the implementation of IT services.
