Vmware invented the enterprise virtualisation market and continue to lead the market with innovative products and tools for managing virtualised infrastructures. Server virtualisation is now the norm in the majority of enterprise IT environments and Vmware is present in 100% of Fortune 100 and 98% of the Fortune 500 companies world-wide.
VMware Virtualisation Solutions
The case for virtualisation is made and the technology is now a critical component in every IT Manager’s strategy. Server virtualisation consolidates server hardware and reduces the TCO on new hardware, iit makes IT departments more responsive to business requirements, simplifies business continuity and test and development functions. As virtualisation is such a fundamental IT building block it is important to choose the right vendor. The products need to be:
- Robust and reliable.
- Deliver integrated products from the desktop to the datacentre to the public cloud.
- Provide comprehensive management tools.
- Offer low total cost of ownership.
Hardware.com is a Vmware Enterprise Solution Provider and leading supplier of VMware products and expertise offering tight integration knowledge with our portfolio of servers, storage and networking products.
Utilising Vmware’s vSphere 5 and associated management products, virtualising your server infrastructure is the first step towards creating a more resilient and agile IT service. Vmware offers a complete virtualisation environment which will allow you to offer applications or software as a service and enable you to transition some, or all, of your infrastructure to public cloud providers.
Vmware vSphere is available in a range of feature rich editions including SMB and starter kits to give you all you require to get up and running in hours.
The agile infrastructure, based on Vmware vSphere, is ready to be protected against disasters or planned maintenance at your key locations.
Traditional IT infrastructures dictate limited Disaster Recovery plans with only key applications included or tiered plans whereby key applications are recovered first with others following later. Vmware Site Recovery Manager leverages cost efficient vSPhere replication or integrates with your storage vendor’s replication to provide:
- Simple management of recovery and migration plans.
- Non-disruptive testing.
- Fully automated site recovery and failback.
You can replace error prone, paper or spread sheet based, recovery manuals with a GUI based workflow tool integrated into your vSphere management that allows you to plan and non-disruptively test your disaster recovery or migration plans.
Vmware View 5 does for desktops what vSphere has done for datacentres, providing resilient and agile desktops services that reduces desktop ownership costs while providing a personilised, high fidelity experience for end-users across a variety of devices. Vmware View is built on, and integrates with, Vmware vSphere, delivering desktops from a single integrated platform as part of your cloud services.
Desktops can be easily managed and controlled from a single management console with provisioning and patching achievable in a few clicks. Applications can be streamed to View desktops using ThinApp rather than labouriously installed on each desktop and new operating systems can be rolled out in a single sweep.
Vmware View utilises PCoIP software to deliver media rich audio and video with a wide range of support for USB peripherals.
