With the announcement vSphere 6.0, I am sure many of you are curious to learn more about the new features and capabilities in vSphere which includes a major update to Virtual SAN dubbed VSAN 6.0. From what I saw on Twitter yesterday, the blogosphere was on fire yesterday with so much content which was awesome but I also did notice quite a bit of incorrect information being posted. I suspect some of this information was based on earlier vSphere Beta's while others, I am really not sure where they got their information because it was not even mentioned in the Beta's. Remember, that not everything in the vSphere Beta will be released in the final product.
In any case, for the definitive source of What's New in vSphere 6.0, I would highly recommend everyone check out both new whitepapers for vSphere 6.0 Platform as well as VSAN 6.0 as they will contain all the details of what will be available at GA. Below are the direct links for the whitepapers as I did not find it on the Technical Whitepapers section of VMware.com which I suspect is still being updated.
