Release : vSphere 4.1

imageWOW, news travels fast in the Blogosphere!

vSphere 4.1 was released officially yesterday and there seems to be at least a couple dozen blog posts already out detailing what’s new in it from various blogs.  I find it very interesting the amount of material that is out related to the OVER 150 new features and improvements on DAY 1!  This is definitely a direct result of VMware’s forward thinking social media strategy.  Early access to beta code,  NDA product conference calls and debriefs for bloggers obviously were the catalysts that made this happen.  Some information was leaked out beforehand but most of it was held until the release when all the posts (many that I suspect were written/outlined days and weeks ago) were queued to publish.  Some simple googling will get you heaps of information on the new features of vSphere 4.1 so no need for me to rehash now. (Check out THIS LIST!)

You can jump directly to Gabe’s Site for an excellent write up on much of the new stuff here. (Good Job Gabe!)

You can also download the bits  here.

I have yet to find the time to run the new version through it’s paces in my home lab but will soon and hopefully report back. 🙂
