VMware vSphere 5.5 available!
Yesterday, VMware released vSphere version 5.5. As usual there are lots of new features and of course the configuration maximums rise again though they already are far away from what most customers need.
For me, the most importand change is the redesign of the single-signon-service. This mandatory service was introduced with vSphere 5.1 and caused a lot of trouble. The new service is supposed to be more reliable while beeing less complex to install and maintain. I’m looking forward to my first test installations as soon as the downloads are completed.
