vCenter Server Heartbeat is a critical component used to protect vCenter Server from outages in a LAN configuration, which provides high availability, and for DR in a WAN configuration, which can also support site outages. It is the only supported way to get high availability for vCenter Server, and can also protect the vCenter Server Database, SSO, and some other components. If you’re running important business critical workloads and your management infrastructure is important to you, or you’re a cloud service provider, then you’ll be wanting to use vCenter Server Heartbeat. The Product Manager that is responsible for setting the direction for vCenter Availability and vCenter Server Heartbeat in particular is in need of your feedback. If you want to have input on the future direction of this important product now is your chance.
vCenter Server Heartbeat is a product that I’ve covered a bit on this blog in articles such as VMware Products Not Supported with SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups, The Status of Microsoft Failover Clustering Support on VMware vSphere 5.1, vCenter Server Heartbeat Installation and Validation, vSphere 5.1 and vCenter Server Heartbeat 6.5 Deployment Considerations, Clustering Support on vCloud Director and vCenter Databases, vSphere 5.1 Generally Available – Important Upgrade Considerations, Using vCenter Heartbeat to Protect Non-vCenter SQL DB? Think Again!, and Changing vCenter Heartbeat to CA SSL Certificates. VMware has developed a short survey that won’t take long for you to complete. Your feedback is valuable and will be taken into consideration for future product development plans. So please provide your feedback here.
I know how busy everyone is, but spending a few moments answering the survey questions would be of great value to all concerned. You will have a say in how VMware products are developed for the benefit of everyone. Any contributions and feedback you give are greatly appreciated. So please consider taking the time to provide your feedback.
