It also features predictive Distributed Resource Scheduler (pDRS) and native VMware vSAN management and monitoring capabilities for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions powered by vSAN.
  • vRealize Automation 7.3 new supports Admiral 1.1, a lightweight container management portal, Virtual Container Host instances generated by VMware vSphere Integrated Containers, Docker hosts, and Docker volumes enabling users to create and attach volumes to containers.
