VMware ESXi 6.0 available
« on: September 11, 2015, 09:30:09 AM »


With the release of vSphere 6.0, VMware has approved the corresponding free version of BareMetal Hypervisor "ESXi" which can be installed via the EUserv customer panel in Beta-Status for several weeks.

Version 6.0 of ESXi is particularly suitable for professional virtualization on physical servers. The administration is carried out via the graphical administration tool "vSphere Client" (also available for free). Also, the command-line tool "esxcli" can be used for these purposes directly on the ESXi host.

With "Virtual Machine Hardware 11", ESXi 6.0 comes with improvements for virtual serial or parallel ports. In addition, the new version brings a virtual USB 3.0 host controller. Another innovation is the extended support for guest OS. These include, Mac OSX, FreeBSD 9.3, Solaris 11.2 and Ubuntu 12.04  LTS and 14.04 LTS.

More features:

- support for up to 12 TB of physical RAM and 480 physical CPUs
- maximum of 1000 VMs per ESXi instance
- advanced command set for "esxcli"
- "Virtual Machine Hardware" in version 11

Please note, that ESXi 6.0 is only compatible with the following server-series:

* Prime64 v5
* Pro64 v5
* Filer Pro v1

An installation on other server series is not possible.

kind regards,
