What Virtualizing Java with VMware Does

Virtualize Java Applications Without Sacrificing Performance

VMware provides maximum scalability and performance for Enterprise Java applications. Advances in software and hardware virtualization techniques have practically eliminated earlier performance concerns.

Improve Application Lifecycle Management

Virtualization allows you to patch and provision applications in minutes and eliminate the delays you incurred with using dedicated hardware.

Virtualize Your Java Application on Your Current Application Server

With vSphere, you don't have to switch application servers to virtualize your enterprise Java applications. Customers are successfully using vSphere today to host virtual machines containing IBM WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic and RedHat JBoss.

Ensure the Performance of Virtualized Applications

Enterprise Java applications are often deployed on many physical systems in the traditional data center. In production environments, there is very rarely one “central instance” of an application, but rather a cluster of servers supporting that application. Managing these dispersed physical application replicas can be time consuming and challenging. Virtualizing these applications means managing fewer physical systems while maintaining the performance and increasing the reliability of the applications.
