Announcing vSphere 7 Update 3

VMware just announced vSphere 7 Update 3. Let’s have a closer look what improvements can we expect from this update.

Deliver AI and Developer-Ready Infrastructure

In last April with Update 2a, VMware enhanced Virtual Machine (VM) Service to help customers deliver AI and developer-ready infrastructure. Now with Update 3, developers can use Kubernetes commands to provision Virtual Machines on hosts with vGPU.

This will allow developers and DevOps teams build and run their AI apps on GPU-enabled hardware using a self-service model.

When combined with all the GPU-related enhancements, introduced in Update 2, customers will have a lot of power at their fingertips.

But that is not everything. VMware acting on the feedback form customers, simplified the setup of VMware vSphere® with VMware Tanzu™, especially on the network side. Now you can get a test bed up and running with a fraction of the effort so you can focus more on learning how vSphere can operate as your Kubernetes platform.

Scale without Compromise

As large-scale systems using persistent memory have continued to increase in importance for VMware it was crucial to enhance support for persistent memory. Update 3 introduce easier way to to analyze and tune performance by providing insights into memory bandwidth and usage. In addition, alarms can be setup based on SLAs and remediation can be performed based on these findings.

Furthermore, vSphere 7 Update 3 include support for NVMe ( Non-Volatile Memory Express ) over TCP which allows ubiquitous TCP/IP networking infrastructure to be utilized for storage traffic that is better optimized for flash and SSD.

This allow to achieve higher performance and lower latency at a reduced cost. More information can be found here.

Simplify Operations

vSphere 7 Update 3 introduce a vCenter Server plug-in for NSX that will make it much easier for vSphere admins to setup and use NSX networking and security from within the vSphere client, without the need to navigate and login again to the NSX Manager. This will allow for simplified installation workflow and setup of NSX-T and seamless user authentication between vSphere and NSX-T.

vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) get smarter in the way how it handles maintenance operations. To reduce the possibility of disruption for users (once hosts is going into maintenance mode), larger or more critical workloads will now be moved as little as possible
