Reduce IT Costs and Increase Control
Eliminate over-provisioning, increase server utilization and limit the environmental impact of IT by consolidating your server hardware with vSphere® with Operations Management™, VMware's virtualization platform.
Server consolidation lets your organization:
- Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50 percent and energy costs by as much as 80 percent, saving more than $3,000 per year for each virtualized server workload.
- Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers by as much as 70 percent.
- Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in disaster recovery.
- Deliver IT services on demand, independent of hardware, operating systems, applications or infrastructure providers.
Consolidate Hardware with Desktop and Server Virtualization
By consolidating your server hardware with vSphere with Operations Management, your organization can increase existing hardware utilization from as low as 5 percent to as much as 80 percent. You can also reduce energy consumption by decreasing the number of servers in your data center. VMware server virtualization can reduce hardware requirements by a 15:1 ratio, enabling you to lessen the environmental impact of your organization's IT without sacrificing reliability or service levels.
Server and desktop hardware consolidation can also help you achieve a 20 to 30 percent lower cost per application, as well as defer data center construction costs by $1,000 per square foot. vSphere with Operations Management allows for a 50 to 70 percent higher virtual machine density per host than commodity offerings.
Centralize Management of Your Virtual Infrastructure
Unlike vendors that only offer single-point solutions for server virtualizations, VMware lets you manage an entire virtual infrastructure from a single point of control. With vSphere with Operations Management, you can accelerate provisioning time by 50 to 70 percent, manage virtual machines from a central location and monitor the performance of all your virtual machines and their hosts.
Automate the Virtual Infrastructure
A virtual infrastructure can deliver performance, scalability and availability levels that are impossible with a physical infrastructure. Using VMware® vCenter Server™ with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion® and VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™, your organization can avoid planned downtime, enable dynamic, policy-based allocation of IT resources and eliminate repetitive configuration and maintenance tasks. vSphere also supports disaster recovery and can help you avoid unplanned downtime.
