vSphere 6.0 storage enhancements: Top reasons to upgrade

Eric Siebert, the 7-time VMware vExpert with over 25 years of experience in IT, provides a practical and concise overview of the recent vSphere 6.0 enhancements that focus on three major areas: VSAN, Virtual Volumes and VAIO. Eric starts with a brief history of vSphere, then describes in detail the new features and their end-user value and use cases. He cautions IT managers that since vSphere 6.0 will put even more stress on storage resources, attention must be paid to addressing performance problems. Eric closes his presentation with a short overview of Infinio's server-side performance acceleration technology, a cost-effective and easy to deploy software-only solution for boosting storage performance in vSphere environments.
