Hi vAdmins,

It’s a great time to start thinking about your IT roadmap and lifecycle management.

With the release of vCenter version 8 Update 1, a lot of new functionality becomes available right now!

vSphere 8 in a nutshell:

Enhance Operational Efficiency, Supercharge Workload Performance and Elevate Security.

New IA/GA model

VMware has changed the release model, starting from VMware vSphere 8.

All major releases will be delivered by a new IA/GA model.

vCenter releases are more frequent than ESXi, so our internal release processes run more often for vCenter, the changes between releases are more distributed, and there’s already a high customer and partner confidence in the upgrade process.
