WHATS NEW in VMware vSphere 5.1

I found a nice blog article listing new features in vSphere 5.1. The main stuff (taken from the article) was:
  1. vRAM has been killed. vSphere is again licensed per CPU just as it was before vSphere 5.0. The licensing whitepaper is here.
  2. Enhanced vMotion allows you to combine a vMotion and Storage vMotion into a single operation, without shared storage.
  3. vSphere replication has been decoupled from SRM, and released as an available feature of every vSphere license from Essentials Plus through Enterprise Plus
  4. New VMware vSphere Storage Appliance 5.1 for SMBs
  5. New backup solution named vSphere Data Protection replacing VDR.
You'll find the entire article over at the VMware VCP blog
