How does VMware vSphere 6.5 improve its Content Library?
April 29, 2017 – 7:13 am | Comments Off on How does VMware vSphere 6.5 improve its Content Library?

VMware vSphere 6.5 enhances the Content Library with three new options: mount an ISO from the content library, update existing templates and apply guest OS customization specifications during a VM deployment. These new features help plug holes in and expand other capabilities introduced in the original version.

The first of these capabilities — mounting an ISO from the Content Library — is useful because it eliminates the need to store ISO images on a data store but keeps the images readily accessible. It’s also possible to use vCenter High Availability and vCenter Server Appliance’s Backup and Restore functionality — both new to VMware vSphere 6.5 — if you put your content library on the vCenter Server Appliance.
