The VMware vSphere virtualization platform is designed as a building block for transforming your IT infrastructure into a private cloud infrastructure. Not only does VMware vSphere enable existing datacenters to accelerate their path to the private cloud, but it also offers the capacity to bridge on-demand to public clouds. This allows for a hybrid cloud model that turns Information Technology (IT) back into Information Services (IS).
By allowing your IT infrastructure to deliver IT resources as they are needed, VMware vSphere maximizes the efficiency of your datacenter operations. And not just when it comes to performance, the vSphere platform also maximizes your ROI by reducing operational and capital expenses while minimizing any revenue that could potentially be lost as a result of power outages, downtime or hardware failures.
Regardless of your application, VMware vSphere is the trusted virtualization platform for complete control of your IT resources. One way that vSphere provides this uncompromised control is by automating the enforcement of Service Level Agreements (SLAs). As a result, the availability, security and scalability of your enterprise applications are taken care of – eliminating any worry and stress on your end.
VMware vSphere empowers your IT department with freedom to choose the hardware, operating system (OS), private or public cloud infrastructure, and application architecture that you feel most comfortable with. The features and technologies integrated into the vSphere virtualization platform transforms your chosen hardware into a shared, resilient infrastructure with built-in control for any and all applications you choose to run.
vSphere with Operations Management
Take vSphere to the next level with VMware vSphere with Operations Management (vSOM). vSOM is vSphere combined with vRealize Operations to provide consistent management, intelligent operations, and infrastructure automation.
As all-in-one solutions, VMware vSphere Essentials Kits combine virtualization for up to three physical servers (up to two processors each) along with the centralized management capabilities of vCenter Server for Essentials.
VMware vSphere and vSOM Acceleration Kits deliver all-in-one solutions that combine 6 CPU licenses of a specific vSphere and vSOM edition, as well as VMware vCenter Server Standard edition for centralized management.
