VMUG Brisbane July
Attended the Brisbane VMware User Group this afternoon, first time since they moved it to 3pm and Mincom building. The topic was VMware/EMC integration and technology update primarily the new VAAI features and vAPI’s VMware are publishing. EMC’s will be releasing Flare 30 and Dart 6.0 to enable the CX and NX series to leverage the new functionality. When asked the EMC respresentative would only say they are coming very soon, no GA release date yet. Also EMC warned that VI client plugins including Powerpath VE updates will be released to support 4.1 so hold off upgrading now. I am sure even some VMware plugins haven’t be updated and released to support 4.1 yet either so until all your products have been updated wait for 4.1. I am about to run it up on workstation to get it a try now.
