What’s new in vSphere 5.1

The licensing is now per CPU (as it was) but with unlimited vRAM. Some features which were only available in higher Editions are now in the Standard Edition. Following features are now part of the Standard licensing model:
  • Hot Add
  • vShield Endpoint (Part of all Editions, except Essentials Kit)
  • Replication (Part of all Editions, except Essentials Kit)
  • Fault Tolerance
  • Storage vMotion
Also the VMware Storage Appliance 5.1 is now part of the Essentials Plus and all Acceleration Kits Editions at no additional costs. There is also a new Acceleration Kit called “Standard with Operations Kit” which include vCenter Operations Advanced and vCenter Protect Standard.
Here are some links to all What’s New PDFs for 5.1 versions:
VMware also announced the end of the vSphere Client with the next edition of vSphere. In vSphere 5.1 the Web Client is now fully featured and can do even more than the vSphere Client.
