[Release] vSphere 5.0 Update 1 etc.

Yesterday VMware published minor updates to their Cloud Infrastructure suite products including vCenter and ESXi 5.0 Update 1. The news is already well covered, e.g. here in the VMware vSphere blog by Duncan Epping.

It looks like there are only few new features in there. For me the most exiting one is that VAAI Thin Provisioning Block Reclaim/UNMAP is back, not inline, but on demand though. However, the list of bug fixes is very long, and this is good! I have the feeling that many enterprise customers that are still on vSphere 4.x were waiting for this update and will now more seriously attack the migration to vSphere 5.0 (following the conservative rule "Don't trust a .0 release"). At least this is what we were thinking ...
