VMware vCenter Server 7.0 Update 3a

It has been not even a month since VMware released vSphere 7 Update 3, and not everyone including me implemented that update, yet today (23/10/2021) VMware announced he release of vSphere 7 Update 3a (7 U3a).

New update focus on workloads with GPU support in VMware Tanzu® Kubernetes GridTM (TKG) cluster, allowing newly created VMs to become part of a TKG cluster.

With the 7 U3a update:

  • Enterprises can transform their TKG cluster into a GPU accelerated Kubernetes platform for running AI/ML workloads.
  • Admins can achieve unprecedented levels of collaboration with AI/ML development teams and move away from ticket-based mechanisms to handle infrastructure requests.
