Yesterday we had a meeting with VMware and they revealed that the next version of VMware ESX, vSphere, has very limited support for the VMware management and automation suite.
vSphere will of course be available with vCenter for basic management and automation tasks but the rest of VMware’s great product suite is not supported in the initial realease of vSphere.
So there won’t be support for:
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager
VMware vCenter Lab Manager
VMware vCenter Lifecycle Manager
VMware vCenter Stage Manager
