VMware vSphere 6 became generally available on March 12th, 2015, and with it come some great new and improved features. Instant Clone allows administrators to clone and deploy new VM’s up to 10 times faster than with previous versions. Replication-Assisted vMotion enables businesses who are configured with Active-Active replication to perform vMotion up to 95% more efficiently, depending on the size of the data. And the enhanced interface provides admins with a more responsive and intuitive web client.
An important note, other supporting technology companies, such as Veeam and Trend Micro, have not yet announced compatibility of their software with vSphere 6.
