vSphere 6.0 U1 supports stretched clusters
VMware released a couple of days ago the first little update for vSphere 6.0. The U1 release includes, in addition to small improvements and bug fixes, an important new feature: stretched clusters. This technology, introduced at the american VMware World, allows to create a cluster with several hosts geographically separated and a VSAN storage, thanks to a VM into the Cloud, called Witness and provided as Appliance, that manages the availability of the two nodes. The technology has been introduced with VMware Virtual SAN 6.1 and a vSphere update to guarantee the full compatibility was expected.
