VMware vCenter Server provides a centralized and extensible platform for managing virtual infrastructure. vCenter Server manages VMware vSphere environments, giving IT administrators simple and automated control over the virtual environment to deliver infrastructure with confidence.
vCenter Server provides centralized management of virtualized hosts and virtual machines from a single console. It gives administrators deep visibility into the configuration of the critical components of a virtual infrastructure - all from one place. With vCenter Server, virtual environments are easier to manage: a single administrator can manage hundreds of workloads, more than doubling typical productivity when managing physical infrastructure.
VMware vSphere web client
Manage the essential functions of vSphere from any browser anywhere in the world.
Provides simplified and integrated management of VMware and Hyper-V hosts.
vCenter single sign-on
Simplify administration by allowing users to log in once and then access all instances of vCenter Server and VMware vCloud Director without further authentication.
Have the entire vCenter Server inventory, including virtual machines, hosts, datastores and networks, at your fingertips.
Alerts and notifications
Support entities, metrics and events such as datastore- and virtual machine - specific alarms. These alarms can trigger automated workflows to remedy and preempt problems.
Standardize and simplify how you configure sand manage VMware ESXi host configurations. Capture the blueprint of a known, validated configuration - including networking, storage and security settings - and deploy it to many hosts, simplifying setup. Host profile policies can also monitor compliance.
Resource management for virtual machines
Allocate processor and memory resources to virtual machines running on the same physical servers. Establish minimum, maximum and proportional resource shares for CPU, memory, disk and network bandwidth. Modify allocations while virtual machines are running. Enable applications to dynamically acquire more resources to accommodate peak performance.
Dynamic resource allocationProduct Highlights
vCenter Server continuously monitors utilization across resource pools and intelligently allocates available resources among virtual machines according to predefined rules that reflect business needs and changing priorities. The result is a self-managing, highly optimized and efficient IT environment with built-in load balancing.
