Today VMware released the new VMware vSphere 6. I was running the Beta for a long time and I must say it was working very good.
The release of vSphere 6 is already exciting but there is one additional extrem cool new product from VMware called VIO (VMware Integrated OpenStack). It is an fully automated setup of an complete OpenStack environment based on VMware. I will try it asap because I’m playing around with OpenStack since a long time and it is definitely not an easy setup. Additionally as stated on the VMware page “Available for free for all customers with vSphere Enterprise Plus, vSphere with Operations Management Enterprise Plus or vCloud Suite.” it’s included in some of the licenses.
As soon as I could play around with I will write an article about the complete setup process.
