vSphere 5– vCenter Server Appliance

Overview

image

The vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) is a new innovation in vSphere 5 that removes the need for a dedicated Windows Server to help manage your vSphere environment.  Essentially the vCSA is a cut-down linux-based virtual machine that comes with the vCenter binaries and a database engine to run them pre-installed and a minimal amount of post-implementation configuration.

We expect the initial implementation to be feature-rich with some limitations over extensions and plugins- but certainly a welcome step in the right direction.

A full review will appear here very soon, showing all of the limitations and features of the appliance
