The architecture of today's x86 servers allows them to run only one operating system at a time. Server virtualization unlocks the traditional one-to-one architecture of x86 servers by abstracting the operating system and applications from the physical hardware, enabling 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. Server virtualization unleashes the potential of today's powerful x86 servers. Most servers operate less than 15 percent of capacity; not only is this highly inefficient, it also introduces server sprawl and complexity.
VMware vSphere offers a complete server virtualization platform that delivers :
- 80 % d’utilisation en plus des ressources des serveurs
- Jusqu’à 50 % d’économies en coûts d’investissement et d’exploitation
- Ratio de consolidation des serveurs de 10:1 ou supérieur
