    vSphere 4 (an extention of the previous generation VMware platform VMware Infrastructure 3) has been annouced today.

    Some nice features too but it's not available to get your paws on for a month so the wait continues

    Fault Tolerence for VMs = very, very usefull and good thats its available at a relativly low service level.

    Data recovery. A basic backup system was needed, as backup companies were charging more for a VM backup system per host than vmware did per host for Vi3 standard licences (to education).

    Ability to add memory and cpus without reboots = Handy addition.

    vShield = pre-emptive strike on x-vm exploits.

    vStorage Motion no longer experimental.

    No more Flex licencing server, its done through Vcenter 4 or assigned to a Host. Option for another single point of failure gone.

    Now licenced per socket...
