This video provides a description of the newest version of VMFS, and how to create a new VMFS6 datastore.
- [Instructor] I think the key to understanding…why we've had so many versions of VMFS is to understand…that VMFS stands for Virtual Machine File System.…So, when VMware first got started they had their own…file system called VMFS.…That didn't change until we got to version three,…that was VMFS Version Three.…Didn't change again 'til we got to version five,…and that was called VMFS Version Five.…Now then you might say, well, that makes sense.…Well, here's the part that doesn't quite make sense.…
At version six, ESXI, we were still using VMFS Version Five.…We are still using it.…But, at 6.5, now we have VMFS Version Six.…So VMFS Version Six came about with vSphere 6.5.…But as I said, it stands for Virtual Machine File System.…So, as the technology continues to improve…and as the storage vendors continue…to make their changes, what VMware does is responds…and wants to make sure that you have…the best storage options that you can.…
