Cloud DNS integration
Customers deploy their purposes in non-public clouds in numerous areas for latency, knowledge sovereignty or backup causes. Nevertheless, every non-public cloud comes with its personal DNS endpoint. In case your non-public clouds are deployed in a number of areas, sustaining separate DNS decision for every of them creates added complexity. We’ve simplified this by enabling the usage of Cloud DNS with VMware Engine. This characteristic means that you can resolve the domains of administration parts of a number of non-public clouds (in the identical or totally different areas) in your Google Cloud undertaking. This tremendously simplifies your deployment globally with a single DNS administration level.
Versatile networking architectures
Once you’re coming from on-premises contexts, you’ll have quite a lot of community configuration choices that you just want to carry over. These embrace the usage of customized or reserved-block Public IP (non RFC-1918) or RFC 6598 (non-private) handle ranges. VMware Engine now helps the usage of customized/reserved-block addresses for workload or administration networks, and RFC 6598 handle ranges to be used on administration networks. This will get you the compatibility and design flexibility you want for some situations, minimizing the adjustments required to your transfer to the cloud.
vSphere 7 help
All new VMware Engine non-public clouds at the moment are deployed with VMware vSphere model 7.Zero and NSX-T model 3.0. You get loads of new options, enhanced flexibility and improved efficiency.
With bigger deployments, you usually must create a number of clusters and personal clouds. This will increase complexity and administration overhead. VMware Engine now helps giant clusters—as much as 32 hosts per cluster. Now you can scale as giant as your purposes want.
HCX cloud-to-cloud migration
Typically, the cloud is house to your purposes, and you’ll want to migrate not simply from on-premises, however between cloud areas as nicely. With HCX cloud-cloud migration, now you can migrate your VMs between two VMware Engine non-public clouds. And with Global Routing, it’s quick and straightforward to maneuver throughout geographies with out having to arrange complicated tunnels. It’s now simpler to replace your deployment plan and cloud structure even after you could have accomplished your cloud migrations.
ESXi host configuration retention throughout reboots
Many VMware Engine customers have ESXi host-specific configurations comparable to vSphere labels, vSphere customized attributes, vSphere tags, and affinity and anti-affinity guidelines. These often must be rebuilt when a bunch is changed within the occasion of a failure. With this characteristic, node customizations now switch from the failed node to the substitute node.
Enhanced password administration
Managing passwords could be a full time job and result in a lot frustration if you happen to don’t have a strategy to hold monitor of the passwords simply. VMware Engine now helps default password administration of VMware companies like vCenter, NSX, HCX and permits resetting of passwords. Random, safe passwords are generated by default proper within the VMware UI, which is accessed by way of the VMware Engine console. The result’s simpler and safer password administration with out ever having to swivel out of that administration interface.
