Use VMware to transform your data center into a flexible cloud infrastructure with the performance and reliability to run the most demanding applications. Begin your cloud journey with server virtualization. Then, at your own pace, evolve toward a fully virtualized software-defined data center architecture: virtualize networking, storage and security to create virtual data centers. Simplify the provisioning of IT resources and applications, and make them available for consumption in minutes.
Get enterprise-class virtualization platform for your datacenter and hybrid cloud. Strengthen IT efficiency and flexibility with faster virtualized application deployment and maintenance. Built on Hyper-V, included in Windows Server, Microsoft virtualization solutions help reduce costs by consolidating more workloads on fewer servers. Increase IT agility and flexibility across on-premises and cloud resources with Microsoft virtualization solutions.
VMware vSphere, the industry-leading virtualization platform can be used to virtualize any application. It not only simplifies virtual data center but also markedly redefines availability. You can create the perfect foundation for a cloud environment that offers high availability, is extremely resilient, and offers on-demand infrastructure. It can simplify the way you manage your business. vSphere is the next generation of applications.
VMware offers the highly competent and user-friendly wizard based guides which can dramatically ease the process of setup and configuration. Your business can be up and running in just a fraction of the deployment time that it would require when setup with other alternatives.
It is now easy and less expensive to protect all your virtualized applications with VMware. Your business is unlikely to suffer downtime or data loss as VMs gets restarted on another machine automatically when a node or server goes down. With VMware, you are spared the trouble of purchasing and managing advanced, individual infrastructure which is obviously an expensive option
With the advanced hypervisor, security risks are as good as absent. The hypervisor needs just 144 MB space as it is thinner and hence is the ideal foil for attacks. It provides enhanced security and minimizes chances of threat to data.
By providing significantly higher VM density per host, VMware beats all other virtualization platforms hands down. It has the ability to boost pre-server utilization rates by as much as 80 per cent. In effect, you require less hardware to run all your applications smoothly. Surely, that saves you a neat pile in operating costs.
As VMware is a consolidated package where you can park a host of applications in limited servers without affecting performance output, it becomes a highly affordable solution for smaller enterprises. No wonder it has the lowest total cost to ownership ratio.
You are free to bring in your own IP Addresses and Network Topologies without making any changes to the datacenter network. This type of isolation allows you to host virtual machines with the same IP scheme on a Hyper-V Host which is a huge advantage.
With Hyper V, hosting providers can run multiple virtual networks on the same physical network even when IP Addresses are overlapping. Every virtual network operates independently on the shared cloud
As a virtual platform built in Windows, its familiar interface, functions and layout mean it is much easier to use if you are used to the working in Windows environment. This is a great benefit if you are the informal admin for your office or if you just prefer working with Windows.
Generally speaking, the live migration of virtual machines can be done to the same VLAN or IP subnet. For crossing subnets the IP address of the virtual machine needs to be changed which can disrupt services. Hyper V makes migration to virtual machines possible in real time across different virtual subnets and keeps its location updated and synchronized so that there is no disruption in communication.
IT organizations using Hyper V can move their data center services without much hassle and pretty quickly too as network planning is not needed. With Hyper V this is possible as changes are not needed at the network layer. Customers are free to bring their own IP Addresses.
It comes as a freebie in Windows Server 2012 and who doesn’t like a freebie, especially as many IT departments are under pressure to cut down their costs. On top of this the included features in Hyper-V are comparable to what you find in the more expensive versions of other hypervisor platforms.
