VMware vSphere 5 Unveiled
VMware introduced vSphere 5 today which brings more than 200 new/updated features, along with cloud infrastructure suite.
VMware vShield 5 – Addressing the top enterprise concerns about cloud computing – security, control and compliance – the vShield product family overcomes the limits of traditional security solutions by delivering an adaptive, software-based security model designed for virtual and cloud environments. vShield 5 will include new Data Security capabilities that will enable IT to quickly identify risk exposures resulting from unprotected sensitive data, isolate applications with different levels of trust and migrate security policies as data and applications move between different virtual systems and apply the same policies in public clouds.
VMware vSphere 5 is scheduled for release in Q3 of 2011.
