Designed for organizations that want to optimize existing IT assets and costly datacenter expansions, VMware vSphere Standard edition provides an entry-level solution for basic consolidation of applications to slash hardware costs while accelerating application deployment.
VMware ESXi and ESX hypervisor architectures
They provide a robust, production-proven, high-performance virtualization layer that allows multiple virtual machines to share hardware resources with record-breaking performance that can match and in some cases exceed native throughput.
VMware Virtual SMP
It enables the use of ultra-powerful virtual machines that possess up to four virtual CPUs.
VMware vStorage Virtual Machine File System (VMFS)
It allows virtual machines to access shared storage devices, and is a key enabling technology for other vSphere components such as Storage vMotion.
VMware vStorage Thin ProvisioningProduct Highlights
It provides dynamic allocation of shared storage capacity, allowing IT organizations to implement a tiered storage strategy while reducing storage spending by up to 50 percent.
- Efficiency through utilization and automation - achieve consolidation ratios of 15:1 or more and improve hardware utilization - without sacrificing performance
- Dramatically lower IT costs reduce capital expenditures by up to 70 percent and operational expenditures by up to 30 percent to achieve 20 percent to 30 percent lower IT infrastructure costs for each application running on vSphere
- Agility with control respond quickly to changing business needs without sacrificing security or control, and deliver zero-touch infrastructure with built-in availability, scalability and performance guarantees for all business critical applications running on vSphere
- Freedom of choice - use a common, standards based platform to leverage existing IT assets alongside IT services, and enhance vSphere through open APIs with solutions from a global ecosystem of leading technology providers
