vSpeaking Podcast Ep 159: vSphere Lifecycle Manager

vSphere and vSAN 7 introduced an entirely new solution for unified software and firmware management that is native to vSphere. vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM) is the next-generation replacement to vSphere Update Manager (VUM), and is built off of a desired-state, or declarative model that provides lifecycle management for the hypervisor and the full stack of drivers and firmware for the servers powering your data center. This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Niels Hagoort to discuss the details of vSphere Lifecycle Manager.
