6? - What about us 5.5 users?
I'm (we're) still waiting for 5.5 U3. It was supposed to be here around May. I just saw a reference in an HP alert email to 5.5 U3, but nothing from VMWare yet.
Moving to 6 is a ways off for me and moving proprietary IP that is the lifeblood of the company contained in those VMs into the cloud is pretty far away, regardless of how easy it will be to move them.
Ease of the technology isn't the issue, appropriateness is. Our IP is nestled nice and cosy right in our racks, not accessible to the outside world, right where it needs to be. At least for now and the foreseeable future.
Just remember, how a company treats its customers (and earlier products) is how eventually vSphere 6 users will be treated once vSphere 7 comes out. So message to VMWare: Don't ignore your 5.5 users, just yet....
