China to get its very own cut-price cut-down cut of vSphere

vmotion between versions

When I upgraded 4.1 to 5.5 3 or 4 years ago I vmotioned VMs from hosts on 4.1 to hosts on 5.5. Sounds like what vmware is working on now?

Maybe it doesn't work on newer versions of vsphere, wouldn't know since I have not had a need to upgrade from 5.5 yet.

That's always been a feature of VMware for upgrade paths. I've had VMs most likely start out life on 4.1, went to 5.5, 6.0 and to 6.5 on the same hardware without disruption. Just vmotion around the cluster as things went.

Most likely whatever was trying to be conveyed to the reporter got lost in translation, as there is nothing to "work on" for that feature, it has been a done deal for quite some time.
