Reduce Server Costs 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 Data Center

Unlike vendors that only offer single-point solutions for server virtualization, VMware lets you manage an entire virtual data center from a single point of control. With vSphere with Operations Management, you can monitor health, manage resources, and plan for the data center growth all from a unified dashboard.

Automate the Virtual Data Center

An automated virtual data center can simplify management while simultaneously delivering performance, scalability and availability levels that are impossible with physical infrastructure. The vSphere with Operations Management platform enables your organization to minimize downtime, enable dynamic, policy-based allocation of IT resources and eliminate repetitive configuration and maintenance tasks.
