VMware Photon OS 4 has been released, for those unfamiliar with Photon it’s an opensource minimalist Linux operating system that is optimized for the cloud, VMware vSphere deployments, and cloud native applications. Its small footprint and fast boot times are what appeal to many admins.
Kishan Malur writes on the VMware vShpere Blog:
I’ve always wondered how many vSphere admins use or support Photon OS. It’s something I haven’t had to deal with in my environment but I know it has been steadily climbing the charts of distrowatch. I’ll be downloading this version and adding it to my VMware fusion VM inventory.
Do you use Photon OS? What has your experience been like? Do you have any interesting use cases to share with the community? Let me know on Twitter and thanks for reading.
