Reduce IT Costs and Increase Control
Virtualization means to create a virtual version of a device or resource, such as a server, storage device, network or even an operating system where the framework divides the resource into one or more execution environments.
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:
- 80 percent greater utilization of server resources
- Up to 50 percent savings in capital and operating costs
- 10:1 or better server consolidation ratio
VMware's virtualization allows you to eliminate over-provisioning, increase server utilization and limit the environmental impact of IT by consolidating your servers.
In fact, server consolidation lets your organization:
- Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50 percent and energy costs by as much as 80 percent
- Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers by as much as 70 percent.
- Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in disaster recovery.
- Deliver IT services on demand, independent of hardware, operating systems, applications or infrastructure providers.
With VMware vSphere, your virtual servers can be moved in real time, without service interruption, between different physical servers allowing scheduled hardware maintenance.
Also in case of shutdown of critical physical server services associated with it will start again immediately on another CPU available, without stopping the work cycle of the company.
It 'also available an advanced technology that creates Snapshot of virtual machines, allowing you to make updates or extraordinary maintenance and return at any time to the original working configurations.
In case of hardware failure, data and services can be restored in a very short time, regardless of hardware adopted.
Storage consolidation is a concept that enables the design and construction of storage infrastructure for efficient management and maximum use, with the lowest storage hardware and management costs.
It is the process of centralizing, sharing and optimizing data storage resources among multiple users and applications. Key benefits from Storage Consolidation:
