VMware vSphere: Introduction to vSphere 8

VMware vSphere: Introduction to vSphere 8

A newly released version of VMware vSphere 8 enhances on-premises workloads with cloud-like features and introduces a fully integrated Kubernetes runtime and DPUs that improve performance.

With VMware vSphere Distributed Services Engine, VMware introduces Data Processing Units to Enterprises in order to enable heterogeneous computing.

Cloud infrastructure for modern applications is evolving with vSphere Distributed Services Engine, which distributes responsibility for running infrastructure services between CPUs and DPUs.

As vSphere Distributed Services Engine modernizes cloud infrastructure into a distributed architecture enabled by DPUs

  • Utilize accelerated networking functions to meet distributed workload throughput and latency requirements.
  • Reduce operation overhead by integrating vSphere workflows with DPU lifecycle management to deliver the best infrastructure price-performance

vSphere Distributed Switch and NSX Networking are offloaded and accelerated by Distributed Services Engine, with additional services to follow. Customers who run applications like in-memory databases that require high network bandwidth will benefit immediately from this.

A containerized workload's resilience to infrastructure failures can be increased with vSphere 8 TKG Availability Zones deployed across three clusters. With the help of a new Cluster API feature called Cluster Class, cluster creation has been simplified.

All clusters can now be created, scaled, upgraded and deleted from one place. It is now easier to provision, upgrade, and operate multiple Kubernetes clusters declaratively.

Platform operators and application developers can now utilize Carvel-based tooling to confidently deploy Kubernetes.

The following add-on cloud services can be deployed with vSphere 8 for the purpose of protecting workloads and optimizing infrastructure, and more will follow.

There are also new features in vSphere 8, such as Green Metrics, which track the power consumed by workloads and infrastructure operations.
