When critical applications grind to a halt, business does too. Business continuity solutions have traditionally been too expensive and hard to manage, putting them out of reach for smaller companies. Not anymore. VMware delivers solutions that make business continuity simple, affordable and accessible so no company has to do without being protected.
Keep Your Critical Applications Up and Running
VMware delivers dependable business continuity solutions to protect all of your virtualized applications from the impact of downtime. When an operating system or server failure occurs, affected workloads are instantly restarted on intact servers with no human intervention. You can also opt for VMware fault tolerance to eliminate data loss and minimize disruption due to a server failure. Should an entire site ever go down, replicated virtual machines can automatically be restarted at a failover location.
VMware eliminates planned downtime too: when a server or storage hardware needs maintenance, running virtual machines can be moved to other servers with no disruption to users or operations.
