This past summer the technical marketing teams behind VMware Cloud Foundation, vSAN, and vSphere came together under one hypothetical “roof” inside VMware. Just like with roommates or relationships, when people move in together one big question is “where does all the stuff go?” So, we started a new site, core.vmware.com, just for all of our technical information!
You may have seen core.vmware.com mentioned as far back as with VMworld 2020, with new content going up there, and old content from Storage Hub and vSphere Central being refreshed and reposted. Some great examples of this are:
- VMware vSphere Security Configuration Guide 7 (and more in the Security section)
- vMotion Enhancements in vSphere 7 (and more in the vSphere section)
- vSphere with Tanzu Proof of Concept and Quick Start Guides
This is the vSphere blog, so we’re a little biased, but if you’re a vSAN fan (and you should be, especially with the new features in vSAN 7U1), or interested in the rapid deployment and time-to-value that VMware Cloud Foundation brings, there’s plenty of information out there, too. And more coming out soon as we revise our vSphere technical information for vSphere 7, the HTML5 vSphere Client, and the world we live in nowadays.
Is the site perfect? Not yet! It’s a work in progress as our products evolve. Are we excited about it? Heck yes! We think that this new platform, and the collaboration going on, is going to allow us to create some really great technical information moving forward. Our goal is a “one stop shop” for operational information for vSphere, vSAN, and Cloud Foundation – the CORE of the software-defined data center (hence the name). If docs.vmware.com helps answer the “how” questions, our goal on core.vmware.com is to help answer “why?”
So here’s what we’d like you to do:
- Go check it out: core.vmware.com
- If you aren’t subscribed to blogs.vmware.com/vsphere please do! We’ll be posting more links to Core content we think you’ll be interested in.
- Make sure you’re subscribed to the VMware Security Advisory mailing list. Absolutely nothing goes to that list except important security announcements.
- Last, we have a terrific vSphere YouTube Channel with new information and videos about all sorts of technical topics. We definitely recommend subscribing to that as well, especially as we do more live streaming (one coming up on Wednesday, December 9th, on securing vSphere). Live streams are good opportunities to ask questions!
From all of us at VMware, we hope you’re doing alright in this strange year, and we thank you for being our customers. We love feedback – please let us know if and how we can help you and your organizations move your missions forward efficiently, securely, and safely.
