Virtualization technology increases efficiency in your data center by enabling today’s x86 servers to run multiple operating systems and applications. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability increases and operations become automated, resulting in IT that’s simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
Abstracting the operating system and applications from the physical hardware gives you a more cost-efficient, agile and simplified server environment. Using server virtualization, multiple operating systems can run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server’s computing resources.
Most servers operate at less than 15 percent of capacity, leading to server sprawl and complexity. Server virtualization addresses these inefficiencies. VMware vSphere offers a complete server virtualization platform that delivers:
