vSphere is the industry-leading virtualization platform, empowers users to virtualize any application with confidence, redefines availability and simplifies the virtual data center. The result is a highly available, resilient, on-demand infrastructure that is the ideal foundation of any cloud environment.
• EFFICIENCY THROUGH UTILIZATION AND AUTOMATION:
Achieve consolidation ratios of 15:1 or more and improve hardware utilization from 5–15 percent to as much as 80 percent or more without sacrificing performance.
• MAXIMIZE UPTIME ACROSS YOUR CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE:
Reduce unplanned downtime and eliminate planned downtime for server and storage maintenance.
• DRAMATICALLY LOWER IT COSTS:
Reduce capital expenditures by up to 70 percent and operational expenditures by up to 30 percent to achieve 20–30 percent lower IT infrastructure costs for each application running on vSphere.
• AGILITY WITH CONTROL:
Respond quickly to changing business needs without sacrificing security or control, and deliver zero-touch infrastructure with built-in availability, scalability and performance guarantees for all business-critical applications running on vSphere.
• FREEDOM OF CHOICE:
Use a common, standards based platform to leverage existing IT assets alongside next-generation
IT services, and enhance vSphere through open APIs with solutions from a global ecosystem of leading
