VMware vCSA 5.5 – Ready for Prime-time & the War Fighter

At VMworld US in San Francisco last week, VMware had quite a few different announcements around the 5.5 release of vSphere. Announcements around the vCenter Server Appliance really hit home for me in the Federal space. Ready for Prime-time In vSphere 5.5, the vCenter Server Appliance limitations have been extremely raised when using the vCenter Server Appliance: Previous to vSphere 5.5, the limits were: 5 vSphere Hosts 50 Virtual Machines With vSphere 5.5, the limits are now: 100 vSphere Hosts…
