The VMware approach to virtualization inserts a thin layer of software directly on the computer hardware or on a host operating system. This software layer creates virtual machines and contains a virtual machine monitor or “hypervisor” that allocates hardware resources dynamically and transparently so that multiple operating systems can run concurrently on a single physical computer without even knowing it.
However, virtualizing a single physical computer is just the beginning. VMware offers a robust virtualization platform that can scale across hundreds of interconnected physical computers and storage devices to form an entire virtual infrastructure.
Virtualization for Business Needs
VMware software is used by enterprises large and small to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their IT operations. Find out how VMware software can helpconsolidate servers, optimize software development and provide affordable business continuity.
- Server Consolidation Bring unmanageable server sprawl under control by using virtualization to run multiple workloads on fewer servers and to reduce future needs for physical servers.
- Energy Efficiency Reduce energy costs by 80% and go green while improving the flexibility and reliability of your IT infrastructure.
