vSphere 6.0 Content Library

Get Simple and Effective Management of VM-Related Content for vSphere Admins

VMware vSphere® Content Library empowers vSphere Admins to effectively manage VM templates, vApps, ISO images and scripts with ease.
Store and manage content from a central location
Share content across boundaries of vCenter Servers
Deploy VM templates from Virtual Machines Library directly onto a host or cluster for usage

Once a library is created and published, content can be shared between various vCenter servers across your infrastructure. Sharing content from a single source gives IT admins the visibility and control that they need to enforce strict VM and application configuration policies within their organizations. 

On the subscriber vCenter, you can download all the contents of the published library at once or only when you need them (“On-Demand”). Once downloaded, this content will remain in sync with its source in the published library. 

Additionally, host to host bit transfer reduces load on vCenter server, while achieving high synchronization speed. Delivers operational ease at scale, reducing the effort required to re-create, import/export content in environments with multiple vCenter Servers Enables consistency in content across vCenter Servers Provides advanced controls that enable admins to control capabilities such as the synchronization window between publisher and subscriber libraries and network bandwidth allocation for synchronization operations
