After some months from the announce, VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 1 is now general available (GA) and it’s now possible download it. Of course this also mean a new version of the VMware vSAN 6.7 Update 1.
VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 1 has several improvements.
But the two most interesting are the support of vSphere 6.5 Update 2 (yes you can upgrade it) and the “Converge Tool” to move from an external PSC to an embedded one.
For more information on all changes and improvements see the related release notes:
No news yet about the VMware vSphere Platinum availability, but it’s also composed by a cloud service (AppDefense) and so maybe will require more time.
Note that actually Veeam Backup and Replication does not support vSphere 6.7 Update 1, due to a critical issue in the backup (anyway there is a temporally workaround for this problem, but only Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Update 4 will fully support the new vSphere 6.7 Update 1).
For other backup program it’s not clear is there is a similar issues, but actually seems that only Veeam is affected. Anyway, before proceed with the update of your infrastructure (if you already have vSphere 6.7) or the upgrade of your infrastructure (if you have vSphere 6.0 or 6.5) check all the compatibilities matrix!
