Busting the Myths: Hadoop Virtualization

Learn the facts about virtualizing Hadoop on vSphere.

Run Big Data Apps on vSphere

Simplify the management of your big data infrastructure and lower costs by using platforms from VMware that virtualize traditional, modern cloud, mobile and big data applications.

Easy Sharing of Data Center Resources

Manage VM templates, vApps, ISO images and scripts from a central location with vSphere Content Library, and deploy VM templates directly onto a host or cluster for a consistent provisioning experience.

Centralized Network Management

Provision, administer and monitor virtual networking across multiple hosts and clusters from a centralized interface. The vSphere Distributed Switch provides rich monitoring capabilities.

Resource Prioritization

Automatically shift resources according to the rules and policies you’ve set up, and address network utilization through a dynamic allocation of I/O capacity across a cluster of vSphere hosts.

Rapid Deployment and Provisioning

Rapidly deploy and provision multiple vSphere hosts, enabling automatic correction of configuration drift and eliminating the need for specialized scripts or manual configuration.
