Special report: VMware vSphere 5.0


Special report: VMware vSphere 5.0

With the latest version of its server virtualisation platform, vSphere 5, VMware is focusing on scalability.

VSphere 5 will support huge virtual machines (VMs), with up to 1TB of RAM and 32 virtual CPUs. That is bigger than many organisations will ever need, but it does reflect the trend towards the more powerful VMs needed to run mission-critical applications.

To help manage these monsters, vSphere 5 will also offer a new graphical user interface for provisioning multicore CPUs.
