(related to VMware ESXi 6)
What would you do if you could instantiate hundreds of VMs that are booted up and ready-to-use in just a few seconds? We present VMFork-- a new technology in VMware ESX Hypervisor-- that lets you do just that. VMFork enables "forking" instances of a live, powered-on VM, each with its own unique identity.
This ESX extension adds functionality to ESX to support MAC-learning on vswitch ports. For most ESX use cases, MAC learning is not required as ESX knows exactly which MAC address will be used by a VM.
