    18 October, 2016

    I haven’t spend a lot of time looking at VMFS lately. I was looking in to what was new for vSphere 6.5 and then noticed a VMFS section. Good to see there is still being worked on new features and functionality for the core vSphere file system. So what is new with VMFS 6:

    Support for 4K Native Drives in 512e mode
    SE Sparse Default
    Automatic Space Reclamation
    Support for 512 devices and 2000 paths (versus 256 and 1024 in the previous versions)
    CBRC aka View Storage Accelerator
