What’s New, Part 2, in vSphere 7 Update 2

It’s been a week since vSphere 7 Update 2 became available, and we continue to publish new information about it every day. Every update release to vSphere has new features. This one has about 20 big ones that we’ll talk about directly, about 90 medium-sized improvements or additions, and hundreds of small improvements and additions that are all aimed at making vSphere better.

vSphere Technical Marketing has been blogging a lot over on our new technical site, core.vmware.com! Let’s look at some of the new posts:

  1. I’m sure some of these will make my life miserable when they go disastrously wrong and the customer blames it on storage… Having ptsd flashbacks to vvols…. The “Unless you have a very good use case stay away from it” feature.
