As the leader in the virtualization landscape, VMware introduced vSphere 8 Update 1 in April 2023. With its impressive improvements in security, automation, and storage, the new update prioritizes stability and expands on the groundwork of vSphere 8. This means customers can expect a seamless approach to VM management and improved cluster design that will not require new license keys. After a recent conversation with VMware expert Mark Gabryjelski, we identify and summarize our findings of Update 1.
In today's highly competitive service industry, one of the most common issues IT professionals encounter originates from clients who fail to anticipate future needs.

As enterprises strive to meet business goals while using increasingly varied IT applications, a growing need eventually emerges to validate and upgrade the underlying infrastructures to keep up with business demand. Infrastructure testing is a vital step in staying ahead of the ever-increasing IT complexities, but is your business doing this frequently and effectively enough?
The cloud has revolutionized the way enterprises do business on every level. For IT, cloud brings some complexity to network operations and infrastructure management.
VMware’s vSphere, the composition of vCenter and its ESXi hosts used to run workloads and containers, has experienced dominance in the IT landscape. There has been talk for years about extending a vSphere environment into the world of public cloud and not being required to run all of this separately through other means. There are many ways to achieve a cloud strategy, and fortunately, VMware accomplishes all of this with vSphere. This post focuses on one of the ways to achieve this type of public cloud strategy with VMware Cloud, which offers VMware on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is a full SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) offering covering compute, storage, and networking capabilities.
