vSphere 6.0 Architecture
vSphere 6.0 represents the core of the software-defined datacenter by virtualizing the entire IT Infrastructure servers,storage and networks with software.
It groups these heterogeneous resources and transforms the rigid,inflexible infrastructure into a simple and unified manageable set of elements in the virtualized environment.
Infrastructure services such as compute,storage and network services abstract, aggregate and allocate hardware or infrastructure resources. vSphere makes infrastructre resources. vSphere makes infrastructure resilient with features like vSphere High availability, Fault Tolerance,vMotion, Storage vMotion and DRS.
The Management layer of vSphere 6.0 consists of the vCenter server and vReliaze Operations that centrally help with configuring, provisioning and managing virtualized IT environments.
The Interface layer of vSphere 6.0 is comprised of clients that allow a user to access the vSphere Data center ,for example, vSphere web client.
vSphere 6.0 clusters can now scale to support more than 64 hosts with 8000 virtual machines.
Each virtual machine can have upto 128 vCPUs and 4TB of RAM, and due to this vSphere 6.0 is capable of virtualizing even the most demanding applications.
Topology of vSphere 6.0 Datacenter:
Using vSphere 6.0, administrators can simplify management of their infrastructure by creating virtual datacenter that has a highly available,resilent on demand infrastructure that is the ideal foundation for any cloud environment. It includes components to perform the following functions:
