Original Document Release.

Beginning April 17, 2018, VMware introduced vSphere Quick Boot, a new capability designed to reduce the time required for a VMware ESXi host to reboot. By using vSphere Quick Boot, VMware ESXi restarts without rebooting the underlying physical server. This eliminates the time-consuming device initialization and self-testing procedures, shortening the time required to patch or upgrade a host.

vSphere Quick Boot will be available on any of the following HPE ProLiant servers or HPE Synergy compute modules:

  • HPE ProLiant BL460c Gen10 Server Blade
  • HPE ProLiant BL460c Gen9 Server Blade
  • HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen9 Server
  • HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Server
  • HPE ProLiant DL560 Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant DL580 Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant XL170r Gen9 Server
  • HPE ProLiant XL170r Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant XL190r Gen10 Server
  • HPE ProLiant XL190r Gen9 Server
  • HPE ProLiant XL450 Gen10 Server
  • HPE Synergy 480 Gen10 Compute Module
  • HPE Synergy 480 Gen9 Compute Module
  • HPE Synergy 660 Gen10 Compute Module
