Virtual Infrastructure for the current and next generation of IT


What is VMware vSphere?

VMware vSphere is the industry-leading virtualization platform for building cloud infrastructures. It enables IT to meet SLAs (service-level agreements) for the most demanding business-critical applications, at the lowest TCO (total cost of ownership).  vSphere accelerates the shift to cloud computing for existing data centers and also underpins compatible public cloud offerings, forming the foundation for the industry’s only hybrid cloud model. With the support of more than 3,000 applications from more than 2,000 ISV partners, vSphere is the trusted platform for any application.

How Is vSphere Used?

Availability and Performance: Deliver enhanced availability and performance for business-critical applications and next-genation applications, such as Hadoop

Storage:  Leverage server-side caching for enhanced performance of applications

Scalability: Support the largest workloads possible by doubling configuration maximums in several key areas

Key Features and Components of vSphere’s Virtualization Platform

VMware vSphere Hypervisor Architecture provides a robust, production-proven, high-performance virtualization layer. It enables multiple virtual machines to share hardware resources with performance that can match (and in some cases exceed) native throughput.

VMware vSphere Virtual Symmetric Multiprocessing enables the use of ultra-powerful virtual machines that possess up to 64 virtual CPUs.

VMware vSphere Virtual Machine File System (VMFS) allows virtual machines to access shared storage devices (Fibre Channel, iSCSI, etc.) and is a key enabling technology for other vSphere components such as VMware vSphere Storage vMotion®.

VMware vSphere Storage APIs provide integration with supported third-party data protection, multipathing and disk array solutions.
