More About VMWare
  • Server Management Consulting and Service
  • VMware Server and vSphere Server Consulting
  • VMWare has made Virtualization technology popular while designing optimized networks. Virtual servers were originally made popular by VMware, who continue to remain the market leader in this segment. VMware offers free entry-level versions of its bare-metal virtual product, VMware vSphere Hypervisor, and its hosted product, VMware Server. In the intensely competitive virtualization market, VMWare is keeping up with the trend to offer such free starter software to its users.

  • VMware Server
  • VMware Server is a robust yet easy-to-use product for organizations new to server virtualization technology. VMware Server is based on VMware’s field-proven virtualization technology. VMware Server enables companies to partition a physical server into multiple virtual machines and to start experiencing the benefits of virtualization with minimal investment. VMware Server is a free virtualization product that can be installed like an application on more than 30 guest operating systems including Linux and Windows 2000/2003/2008 Servers. VMware Server is ideal for developers, departments, workgroups and branch offices who want to:

    Streamline software development and testing
    Evaluate software in ready-to-run virtual machines
    Re-host legacy operating systems
    Simplify server provisioning
    Leverage pre-built, ready-to-run virtual appliances
       
    VMWare Server supports standard hardware along with 64-bit guest operating systems. VMware Server runs on any standard x86 hardware. It supports 64-bit guest operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and Solaris. You can manage VMware Server with VMware vCenter, which simplifies the tasks of provisioning, monitoring and managing infrastructure by providing a central management console. Support for two-processor Virtual SMP enables a single virtual server to span multiple physical processors. VMware captures the entire state of a virtual machine and can roll back at any time. VMware Server offers a smooth upgrade path to more powerful unhosted (known as "bare-metal") versions of VMware thereby protecting your investment on time.

  • VMware ESX Server and vSphere Servers
  • VMware’s ESX and ESXi hypervisors are the foundation for the popular VMware ESX Server and the more recent VMware vSphere Server. An entry-level version, vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi), is available as a free download. ESX and the newer ESXi hypervisors install on “bare metal” and allow multiple unmodified operating systems and their applications to run in virtual machines that share physical resources. ESX and ESXi hypervisors abstract processor, memory, storage and networking resources into multiple virtual machines, giving you maximum hardware utilization and flexibility. VMware ESX Server and vSphere Server allow enterprise datacenters to implement large-scale solutions for:

    Production server consolidation
    Business continuity
    Enterprise software development and testing
    Enterprise desktop solutions
       
  • VMware Infrastructure
  • VMware Infrastructure is a powerful suite of advanced virtualization software based on VMware ESX and vSphere Servers. The VMware Infrastructure suite delivers comprehensive virtualization, management, resource optimization, application availability, and operational automation capabilities. A key component of VMware Infrastructure, called VMware VMotion, increases system uptime through the ability to migrate a running virtual server from one physical server to a different physical server with interrupting the operation of the physical server. This powerful feature allows IT personal to perform hardware maintenance or upgrades on physical servers without impacting production servers running line-of-business applications.

  • VMware vCenter Server
  • VMware vCenter Server is used for larger installations of virtual servers. Powerful and unified management of the entire virtualized environment can be achieved with VMware vCenter Server technology, providing tools to control all facets of server deployment and configuration. There is a graphing system to easily view CPU, memory, network, and disk utilization trends of all servers over extended periods.

    VMware vCenter Server, formerly VMware VirtualCenter, intelligently optimizes resources, by ensuring high availability for all applications in virtual machines, and provides virtualized distributed services such as VMware DRS, VMware HA, and VMware VMotion. VMware vCenter Server lets you automate routine management procedures through task scheduling and alerting. This in turn allows you to improve IT responsiveness to business needs and prioritize actions needing the most urgent attention.

    Monitoring Performance and Utilization of Servers is relatively easy with VMware vCenter Server. With a VMware vCenter Server you can also monitor performance and utilization of physical servers and the virtual machines they are running with detailed reporting of CPU, memory, and I/O performance. For enhanced security that still provides management flexibility, you can limit access to authorized personnel using tiers of customizable roles, fine-grained permissions, and integration with Microsoft Active Directory.

  • Using Microsoft Data Protection Manager with VMware
  • VMware allows for easy usage of Microsoft Data Protection Manager. For users of VMware, an effective way to reduce disaster recovery time drastically is to build a Data Protection Manager (DPM) server with enough CPU and RAM resources to create a system that allows you to recover from a failed virtual machine host server. Because the DPM server has an exact, up-to-date replica of all the virtual machine guest files, in case the virtual machine host fails you can choose to boot those replica images as running machines so that your network stays productive while restoring the original failed virtual machine host server. This means you could be back on line in minutes with all your virtual machine guests even with a complete failure of the original virtual machine host. Please contact us to know more about our consulting support for Microsoft Data Protection Manager.
