Explore the features of VMware vSphere, the industry-leading server virtualization platform that lets you virtualize applications with confidence.
A robust, high-performance virtualization layer that abstracts server hardware resources and makes them shareable by multiple virtual machines.
Aligns compute resources with business priorities through automatic load balancing across hosts. Optimizes power consumption by turning off hosts during lower load periods.
Eliminates application downtime due to planned server maintenance by migrating live virtual machines between hosts, across clusters, distributed switches, vCenter Servers and over long distances of up to 100 ms RTT.
Runs Hadoop workloads on vSphere to achieve higher utilization, reliability and agility.
GRID vGPU brings the full benefit of NVIDIA hardware-accelerated graphics to virtualized solutions.
Delivers high availability across your entire virtualized IT environment without the cost or complexity of traditional clustering solutions.
Provides continuous availability for applications (up to 4-vCPUs) with zero data loss in the event of server failures.
Delivers storage-efficient backups through patented variable-length deduplication, rapid recovery and WAN-optimized replication for DR.
Eliminates third-party replication costs through built-in vSphere replication.
Allows you to deploy and patch vSphere hosts in minutes.
Lets you create a profile once and then use it to configure multiple vSphere hosts.
Reduces time spent on routine remediation by automating the tracking, patching and updating of vSphere hosts.
Manage VM templates, vApps, ISO images and scripts with ease from a central repository.
Provides smart virtual machine placement and load-balancing based on I/O latency and storage capacity.
Enables abstraction for external storage (SAN and NAS) devices making them VM-aware.
Allows common management across storage tiers and dynamic storage class of service automation via a policy-driven control plane.
Performs non-disruptive storage migration, eliminates virtual machine storage and I/O bottlenecks and frees up valuable storage capacity.
Prioritizes storage access by continuously monitoring I/O storage loads and dynamically allocating available I/O resources to virtual machines according to business needs.
Simplifies virtual machine provisioning and administration with a high-performance cluster file system optimized for virtual machines.
Increases virtual machine storage utilization through dynamic allocation and intelligent provisioning of physical storage capacity.
APIs enhance storage awareness, data protection and array integration and let you leverage multi-pathing capabilities from third-party storage vendors.
Virtualizes server side flash providing a high performance read cache layer that dramatically lowers application latency.
