Virtualization with VMware©
VMware's virtualization solutions are based on "VMware vSphere with Operations Management", the leading management software for virtualization and cloud computing. Cut down on investment and operating costs by increasing energy efficiency and reducing needed hardware through server consolidation.
Optimize business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities used for your virtualized infrastructure. Virtualize business critical applications and databases (Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, SAP HANA, SAP Sybase, SAP Business Suite, Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SAP) for highest levels within SLAs (Service Level Agreement) and the best performance. Benefit from policy-based automation and ensure compliance and performance on the basis of a zero-touch infrastructure by using the VMware vRealizeOperations virtualization management tool. Find out why the software-defined data center is the best and most efficient cloud infrastructure solution.
By abstracting both operating systems and application programs from the physical layer of your hardware, you can achieve a more cost-effective, flexible and straightforward server environment. Server virtualization allows to run multiple operating systems on a single physical server, each on a different virtual machine having access to the underlying server?s physical resources. Most servers nowadays have a utilization degree of just 15 %, resulting in server proliferation and a high level of IT sophistication. Server virtualization solves these problems. VMware vSphere provides a complete server virtualization platform offering the following advantages:
- an 80 % higher utilization of existing server resources;
- up to 50 % savings on operating and investment costs;
- a server consolidation ratio of 10:1 or higher.
Network virtualization is a question of creating an entire software based replica of a physical network . In addition to offering the same features and qualities as physical networks, virtual networks also offer the operational benefits and hardware independence of virtualization solutions. These include, among others, the following: a fast provisioning process, uninterruptible deployment, automated maintenance and support of both legacy and recent applications. By means of network virtualization, logical network devices and services are available for connected workloads in the network, e.g. logical ports, switches, routers and firewalls as well as logical load balancing, VPNs and so forth. In virtual networks applications are executed in exactly the same way as if in a physical network.
Deploying desktops as a managed service affords the possibilities to react faster to changing requirements and new sales opportunities. Reduce costs and increase service quality by quickly and easily deploying virtualized desktops and applications to branch offices, employees at either external or remote sites as well as mobile workers using both iPads or Android tablet PCs. The scalable, consistent, secure and highly available VMware desktop solutions ensure maximum uptime and productivity.
