VMWare: Transform your Business with Virtualisation
Improve the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications
Decouple your software environment from its underlying hardware infrastructure so you can aggregate multiple servers, storage infrastructure and networks into shared pools of resources. Then dynamically deliver those resources, securely and reliably, to applications as needed. This pioneering approach lets our customers use building blocks of inexpensive industry-standard servers to build a self-optimising datacentre and deliver high levels of utilisation, availability, automation and flexibility.
A virtual machine lets you share the resources of a single physical computer across multiple virtual machines for maximum efficiency. A virtual infrastructure lets you share the physical resources of multiple machines across your entire infrastructure. Your business needs are the driving force behind dynamically mapping the physical resources of your infrastructure to applications, even as those needs evolve and change. Aggregate your x86 servers along with network and storage into a unified pool of IT resources that can be utilised by the applications when and where they’re needed. This resource optimisation drives greater flexibility in the organisation and results in lower capital and operational costs.
A virtual infrastructure consists of the following components:
- Bare-metal hypervisors to enable full virtualisation of each x86 computer.
- Virtual infrastructure services such as resource management and consolidated backup to optimise available resources among virtual machines
- Automation solutions that provide special capabilities to optimise an IT process such as provisioning or disaster recovery.
Reduce Costs with a Virtual Infrastructure
Lower your capital and operational costs and improve operational efficiency and flexibility. Go beyond server consolidation and deploy a standard virtualisation platform to automate your entire IT infrastructure. VMware customers have harnessed the power of virtualisation to better manage IT capacity, provide better service levels, and streamline IT processes. We have coined a term for virtualising the IT infrastructure, we call it the virtual infrastructure.
