VMware Infrastructure virtualizes and aggregates industry standard servers and their attached network and storage into unified resource pools. Complete environments including operating systems and applications are apsulated in virtual machines that are independent from the hardware. A set of virtualization-based distributed infrastructure services for virtual machines bring breakthrough levels of flexibility, serviceability and efficiency to IT environments:
• Central management and monitoring of virtual machines
automate and simplify provisioning
• Distributed resource optimization dynamically and intelligently
allocates the available resources among virtual machines, resulting
in significantly higher hardware utilization and better alignment of
IT resources with business priorities
• Easy-to-use high-availability provides better service levels to applications
at lower cost than static, physical infrastructure VMware Infrastructure is not tied to any operating system, giving
customers a bias-free choice of operating system and software
applications. VMware Infrastructure scales to support IT environments of any size.
