VMware is announcing vSphere 6.7 – as the latest release in the Hybrid Cloud era bringing the new features and delivers key capabilities to enable IT organizations address the trends that are putting new demands on their IT infrastructure.
vSphere 6.7 vCSA delivers phenomenal performance improvements (all metrics compared at cluster scale limits, versus vSphere 6.5):
2X faster performance in vCenter operations per second
vSphere 6.7. will support upgrades and migrations only from vSphere 6.0 or 6.5. vSphere 5.5 does not have a direct upgrade path to vSphere 6.7. Customers still on vSphere 5.5 will need to upgrade to vSphere 6.0 or 6.5 first and then to vSphere 6.7. Also, a vCenter Server 6.0 or 6.5 managing ESXi 5.5 hosts cannot be upgraded or migrated until the hosts have been upgraded to at least ESXi 6.0.
