What’s New?

Cloud Native Applications

  • Cloud Native Storage: Introducing vSphere integrated provisioning and management of Kubernetes persistent volumes (PVs) and a CSI (Container Storage Interface) based plugin. This integration enables unified management of modern and traditional applications in vSphere.

Intelligent Operations

  • Enhanced day 2 monitoring: vSAN’s capacity dashboard has been overhauled for greater simplicity, and the resync dashboard now includes improved completion estimates and granular filtering of active tasks
  • Data migration pre-check report: A new detailed report for greater insight and predictive analysis of host maintenance mode operations
  • Greater resiliency with capacity usage conditions: Key enhancements include reduced transient capacity usage for policy changes, and improved remediation during capacity-strained scenarios
  • Automated rebalancing: Fully automate all rebalancing operations with a new cluster-level configuration, including modifiable thresholds
  • Native support for Windows Server Failover Clusters: Deploy WSFC natively on vSAN VMDKs with SCSI-3 persistent reservations

Enhanced Performance & Availability

  • Performance enhancements: Deduplication & compression enabled workloads will have improved performance in terms of predictable I/O latencies and increased sequential I/O throughput
  • Availability enhancements: Optimizations to sequential I/O throughput and resync parallelization will result in faster rebuilds
