Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality

In this session, we will cover a slew of new features and functionalities that were included in the VMware vSphere 6.5 release. These include, but are not limited to, VMware vSphere VMFS 6, automated UNMAP, policy-driven storage I/O control and virtual machine encryption, and enhancements to iSCSI and NFS. This will be a lead-by-example session during which the speakers will demonstrate how to utilize these new features and, more importantly, highlight their benefits. We will also demonstrate the performance benefits of these new features by comparing them to previous versions of vSphere and VMFS.
