Quick Look at VMware vSphere 6.0: Web Client

Quick-Look-at-VMware-vSphere-6aVMware recently released VMware vSphere 6.0 into the marketplace. The latest vSphere version is packed full of more than 650 technological breakthroughs! It’s more powerful, more flexible, more secure and more easily managed than ever before.  In this series, Global Knowledge instructor, Bill Ferguson will highlight several features that make VMware vSphere 6.0 a game changer.

Having heard the opinions of the administrators using the 5.1 and 5.5 vSphere Web Client, many of whom were in my classes, VMware has redesigned the vSphere 6.0 client to be much more user friendly.

The menus are flat, responsive and easy to use. When you right-click, there is no delay before your options are available. The Recent Tasks are defaulted to the bottom of the screen, where they should be, so you can read across the whole screen and not scroll as much as when they are on the side.


The Home button has a master list as a drop down that contains most locations that you might need.


A console into a VM creates a new smaller window that looks much more like that of the Windows Client and makes it easier to keep track of multiple VMs. In short, the new Web Client is so good that you will be able to stop running the Windows Client in the background, just in case, every time you open the Web Client.
