Virtualisation

VMware Virtualisation

Simplify your IT infrastructure as you create a more dynamic and flexible datacenter with VMware’s proven server and data centre virtualisation solutions built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s leading virtualisation platform. Ensure continued IT innovation while meeting enterprise application SLAs and increase time-to-market for application provisioning and upgrades. VMware virtualisation helps you reduce capital expenses through server consolidation and improve operating expenses through automation, while minimising lost revenue by reducing both planned and unplanned downtime.

Get automated operations management for the new dynamic virtual infrastructures with VMware vCenter Operations, so you can accelerate IT service delivery, improve operational efficiency, ensure compliance and reduce risk.

VMware virtualisation

While virtualisation in general can bring you many advantages, VMware virtualisation solutions are built on a robust foundation proven in production environments and chosen by over 250,000 customers, including 100% of the Fortune 100. Built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s most advanced virtualisation platform, we enable solutions from the desktop to the data centre, utilising existing IT investments.

Our solutions can be integrated with your overall IT infrastructure and existing management tools. If that’s not enough, we also have the lowest total cost of ownership than any competitor.

Features and Benefits

Reduce costs by increasing energy efficiency and requiring less hardware with server consolidation.

Build up business continuity through improved disaster recovery solutions and deliver high availability throughout the data centre with VMware Site Recovery Manager.

Virtualise enterprise apps, including Oracle, Exchange, SQL Server, Sharepoint and SAP, and deliver the highest SLAs and top performance.

Use policy-based automation and ensure compliance and performance with a zero-touch infrastructure using the vCenter Product Family for virtualisation management.

Server virtualisation

Abstracting the operating system and applications from the physical hardware gives you a more cost-efficient, agile and simplified server environment. Using server virtualisation, 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 virtualisation addresses these inefficiencies. VMware vSphere offers a complete server virtualisation platform that delivers 80 percent greater utilisation of server resources, up to 50 percent savings in capital and operating costs, and 10:1 or better server consolidation ratio.

Benefits

  • Up to 80 percent greater utilisation of every server.
  • Reductions in hardware requirements by a ratio of 10:1 or better.
  • Capital and operations expenses cut by half, with annual savings of more than $1,500 for each server virtualised.
  • Robust, affordable high availability.

Desktop virtualisation

Delivering desktops as a managed service lets you create a more flexible IT infrastructure so you can help your business respond more quickly to market changes and opportunities. Deploy applications and desktops faster and more consistently to a wider variety of clients, lowering costs while improving service levels. Extend the life of legacy applications and eliminate installation conflicts by virtualising applications.

For remote and branch offices, move your desktops into the cloud and deliver them as a managed service wherever they’re needed while retaining the control and security you need. You can reduce costs and increase service by quickly and easily delivering virtualised desktops and applications to branch offices, outsourced and offshore employees and mobile workers on iPad and Android tablets.

Features and Benefits

Streamline deployment and management by delivering desktops as a service.

Virtualise Windows applications for easier OS migration as you package once, deploy everywhere.

Give secure remote access to teleworkers and temporary workers without sacrificing performance or security.

VMware desktop solutions are scalable, consistent, fully secure and highly available to ensure maximum uptime and productivity.

Virtualising Enterprise applications

With the VMware Tier 1 Application Virtualisation solution built on VMware vCloud Suite, you can enhance the quality of IT services delivered, while simplifying your infrastructure, maximising efficiency and eliminating costly over-provisioning. Meet your service levels and maximise infrastructure efficiency with VMware vSphere, which dynamically allocates resources as your applications need them.

Set up a standardised service catalog to deploy applications in minutes for on-demand provisioning while ensuring consistency across application instances. Check out our list of vendors who officially support their applications running on the VMware platform, including Oracle, SAP, Microsoft, and many more.

Features and Benefits

Double the performance of your Exchange by running all Exchange server roles, including the mailbox server, on VMware vSphere.

Consolidate SQL on vSphere to cut costs by 50% while accelerating database delivery and ensuring database Quality of Service.

Virtualise Sharepoint so you can easily scale up resources on the fly, move workloads as needed and deal with planned maintenance with no downtime.

Run Oracle databases, middleware and applications on vSphere for improved time-to-market and total-cost-of-ownership.

Deploying security

Security can also be delivered as an efficient, software-defined service—independent from physical devices, aggregated, and applied precisely where needed without hardware upgrades. Virtual workloads can be moved and scaled free from security constraints and the need for specialised appliances.

Features

  • Integrated firewalling
  • Optimised gateway services
  • Open architecture
