Within the cloud and virtualization space, a lot had happened in last one week or so. I am still catching up on all the news but one thing that caught my attention was the announcement around vRealize Automation 7.0. I recently started working on the vRealize suite of products and therefore this announcement was completely relevant.
There are a ton of new features in this release. Especially, things like the simplified install wizard (you will appreciate this if have you installed IaaS in earlier versions of vRA), graphical service blueprint designer and integration with source control.
You can read more about these new features on VMware blog at: https://blogs.vmware.com/management/2015/10/vrealize-automation-7-0.html. While you are there, sign-up for download availability notification and get your hands dirty when you get the product.
