As VMworld 2012 nears and the eGroup “Dream Team” remains busy locking in their session and event schedules, one thing remains abundantly clear – we all have questions about what we hope will be announced at VMworld 2012. Here are four that come to mind.
1. Will vSphere Fault Tolerance finally support more then one vCPU? This is something that’s been desired since FT was announced with vSphere 4. However, desire and engineering sometimes don’t always meet in the middle. Let’s cross our fingers.
2. Is AppBlast vaporware?We know that project Octopus is in full beta as we have been testing it, but what about AppBlast? Both were announced last year and we hope to hear more about the specific direction and roadmap of each (Gabe expects we’ll hear more).
3. Will VMware get rid of the controversial vRAM entitlement? Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock the last year or so the new vSphere vRAM licensing model has caused a lot of debate. Here’s to hoping VMware does something about it!
4. Will the next generation of vSphere allow for vMotion without shared storage? As VMware pushes the envelope with its next next-generation data center strategy with virtualizing servers, networking and storage, maybe they could have this functionality added to the VSA? If Redmond can do, VMware you can too!
What are your hopes, dreams and burning questions for VMworld 2012?
Stay tuned for more information early next week about the eGroup “Dream Team’s” live broadcast from VMworld. Lots of good news and buzz explained!
