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:
- 80 percent greater utilization of server resources
- Up to 50 percent savings in capital and operating costs
- 10:1 or better server consolidation ratio
Since virtualized infrastructure has unique management needs, VMware offers vSphere with Operations Management, which delivers vSphere optimized with critical capacity and performance management capabilities. It is designed for businesses of all sizes to run applications at high service levels and maximize hardware savings through even higher capacity utilization and consolidation ratios.
