VMware vSphere, the industry's most widely deployed virtualization platform, delivers the only foundation to transform datacenters into dynamic, simplified infrastructures for private, public and hybrid cloud environments. The most comprehensive set of unique capabilities for availability, security, resource optimization, and business continuity have established VMware vSphere as the platform of choice for customers of any size. VMware vSphere dramatically reduces capital and operating costs, and increases control over delivery of IT services while preserving the flexibility to choose between any type of OS, application and hardware, hosted in-house or using external resources. With VMware vSphere providing the foundation for internal and external clouds, using federation and standards to bridge internal and external cloud infrastructures, organizations of all sizes can achieve the full benefits of cloud computing.
Get shared storage capabilities without the complexity of shared storage hardware. VMware has helped you with server-side business continuity with built-in high availability for all your applications. Now VMware helps solve the storage problem for the SMB with vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA), which transforms the server's internal storage from several server hosts into a single shared storage resource.
Reduced costs and maximum IT efficiency
VMware vSphere helps organizations deliver IT services more efficiently by eliminating unnecessary investments and reducing the cost and complexity of managing and maintaining IT infrastructure. By adopting VMware vSphere, customers can achieve over 50 percent reduction in capital expenses and a reduction of over 25 percent in operational expenses, dramatically lowering the total cost of owning and operating enterprise applications. Organizations that use VMware vSphere can achieve consolidation ratios of well over 15:1, with automated management and dynamic allocation of resources to applications across internal and external cloud infrastructures. The result is a clean break from the expensive model of application and information delivery that is tied to specific systems and architectures, and a seamless move to a self managed, dynamically optimized IT environment for the most efficient delivery of business services.
Increased IT control through service level automationProduct Highlights
As businesses have become increasingly reliant on IT services, the effective delivery of applications can mean the difference between growth and decline, success and failure. Businesses depend on IT to fully control the quality-of-service for application delivery, without compromise. VMware vSphere automates the delivery of service-level agreements (SLAs) covering availability, security and scalability shifting the paradigm of datacenter management from infrastructure to service delivery. Application owners who need to roll out business services are shielded from the complexity of servers, storage and network infrastructure, leaving them to focus on the delivery of business value. The result is an automated, controlled environment that is resilient to failures and responsive to changing requirements without complexity or operational overhead.
