Along with the announcement that vSphere 6.5 went GA today, I’ve got some pretty cool news that I was just given permission to share, on the caveat that I can’t actually give the “when” portion of this…
VVols 1.0 is currently being qualified for ONTAP 9.1!
If you have a vested interest in this news, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below with some contact information and I will pass the word on to the ONTAP team.
So, while you’re at NetApp Insight in Berlin, go find Pete at the VMware booth, or attend one of the VMware specific sessions:
