VMware vSphere Quick Boot is an innovative feature that speeds up the upgrade process of an ESXi server. A regular reboot involves a full power cycle that requires firmware and device initialization. Quick Boot optimizes the reboot path to skip time-consuming hardware initialization, saving time from the upgrade process. Lenovo® ThinkSystem™ servers support Quick Boot starting with ESXi 7.0.
This document provides a briefly technical overview of the Quick Boot and describes how to configure and use Quick Boot in VMware ESXi 7.0 on Lenovo ThinkSystem servers. This document is intended for IT administrators who are familiar with VMware vSphere products.
