Features & Benefits
VMware ESXi and ESX
VMware ESXi and ESX (the hypervisor choices for the vSphere host), provide a robust, production-proven, high performance virtualization layer that abstract server hardware resources and allow their sharing by multiple virtual machines. Unique memory management including memory compression and advanced scheduling capabilities of the vSphere host allow for the highest consolidation ratios and the best application performance, in many cases, even better than physical servers.
VMware vMotion eliminates the need to schedule application downtime due to planned server or storage maintenance or during storage migrations by enabling live migration of virtual machines and disks with no disruption to users or loss of service.
High Availability (HA)
Provide high availability across your entire virtualized IT environment without the cost or complexity of traditional clustering solutions. VMware HA provides cost-effective high availability for any application running in a virtual machine, regardless of its operating system or underlying hardware configuration.
Fault Tolerance (FT)
Maximize uptime in your datacenter and reduce downtime management costs by enabling VMware Fault Tolerance for your virtual machines. VMware Fault Tolerance, provides zero downtime, zero data loss and continuous availability for your applications, without the cost and complexity of traditional hardware or software clustering solutions.
Enable quick, simple and complete data protection for your virtual machines with VMware Data Recovery, a disk-based backup and recovery solution. VMware Data Recovery is your first line of defense for data protection. It’s fully integrated with VMware vCenter Server to enable centralized and efficient management of backup jobs and also includes data de-duplication to save on disk storage for your backups.
Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS)
Align your IT infrastructure with your business goals by dynamically allocating and balancing computing resources. VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) continuously monitors utilization across a resource pool and intelligently allocates available resources among virtual machines according to business needs.
