Simplifying vSphere Lifecycle for Consistency and Easy Updates

vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM) is a powerful new approach in vSphere 7 to simplify consistent lifecycle management for the hypervisor and the full stack of drivers and firmware for the servers powering your datacenter.

How to get started with vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM)
November 12, 2020
This demo shows how to start using vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM) in vSphere 7 for simplified lifecycle management. vLCM replaces the baseline methodology used with vSphere Update Manager (VUM). This demo details how to set up the desired state image, how to remediate ESXi hosts and other configuration details.

Introducing the Advanced Cross vCenter Server vMotion Capability
December 17, 2020
Introducing the Advanced Cross vCenter Server vMotion Capability (XMV). XVM helps to migrate virtual workloads between vCenter Server instances, without the requirement for Enhanced Linked Mode (ELM) or Hybrid Linked Mode (HLM). This means it’s possible to migrate virtual machines (VMs) between vCenter Servers that are in different SSO domains. A common scenario of this is workload migrations to VMC on AWS.
