A reliable industry-proven hypervisor is a critical foundation of a virtualized infrastructure but is not a complete solution by itself. You need an IT services platform that delivers the right infrastructure and application services for running your business - a private cloud. It must include built-in migration, aggregation, allocation, and availability services.
VMware vSphere is the only virtualization platform that delivers all of these built-in services.
- Aggregation: Shared Pools of Resources
- Allocation: Elastic Pooling of Resources
- Availability: Flexible, Uniform High Availability
- Storage Management: Integrated for Easier Management
Integrated and Intelligent Storage Management
Ongoing IT management and operational costs can be several times greater than hardware and software acquisition costs over the lifetime of a server. Intelligent storage management features built into vSphere boost efficiency by automating manual processes and simplifying administration tasks. By integrating many storage operations that otherwise require manual storage management, customers can save money from increased efficiency and agility. This, in turn, reduces the time IT administrators spend maintaining the existing infrastructure and frees their resources for more important and valuable strategic projects.
Profile-Driven Storage streamlines storage provisioning by matching application service levels to the available storage tiers. It manages the initial and ongoing placement of VMs based on pre-defined VM requirements and help enhance application uptime for improved business continuity

Storage I/O Control allows you to configure rules and policies to specify the business priority of each VM. It dynamically allocates the available I/O resources to VMs according to your rules, enabling you to improve service levels, prevent the “noisy neighbor” problem, and use your resources more efficiently
