vSphere An Efficient and Safe Platform for Your Cloud Hybrid

vSphere provides a strong, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility that accelerates your digital transformation to hybrid cloud and success in a digital economy. With vSphere, you can support new workloads and use cases while offsetting the increasing needs and complexity of your infrastructure. 

vSphere is the heart of SDDC that is secure, secures applications, data, infrastructure and access. Advanced security capabilities are fully integrated into the hypervisor and supported by machine learning, providing better visibility, protection and faster response times for security incidents. vSphere helps you run, manage, connect, and secure your applications in a common operating environment in a hybrid cloud.

Protect and Consolidate Data vSphere

Consolidate hardware in your data center and enable business continuity through virtualization on the server. Reduce CapEx by increasing usage for existing hardware. Simplify infrastructure management on a scale and improve operational efficiency to serve better infrastructure. Ensure business continuity by reducing or eliminating downtime, and extending your environment to vSphere-based public cloud for a seamless hybrid cloud experience.

vSphere Server Virtualization

Virtualization is a proven software technology that allows to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same server simultaneously. Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility and scalability while creating very significant cost savings. Workloads can be deployed faster, performance and availability increases and operations become automatic, resulting in IT that is easier to manage and cheaper to own and operate.

API and Policy-Based Storage Capability vSphere

VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA) allows vSphere to investigate storage configurations and set storage properties for arrays that support this function. VASA is used by vSphere, vSAN and vSphere API Virtual Volume for IO Filtering (VAIO) as an integrated single control field for vSphere storage. Storage vendors can use VASA to provide vSphere information about specific disk arrays for closer integration between storage and virtual infrastructure. 

At storage determined by software, Policy-Based Storage Management (SPBM) allows you to capture storage requirements (capacity, performance, availability, etc.) For applications in a logical template called VM retention policies. For the VMFS and NFS datastores that run on traditional LUN-based storage, SPBM allows profile-based management based on resource pre-allocation and storage capabilities.

vSphere Direct Migration from Workloads

vSphere vMotion allows you to move all virtual machines running from one physical server to another, without downtime. The virtual machine maintains its network identity and connection, ensuring a smooth migration process. 

Transfer active virtual machine memory and precise execution status through high-speed network, which allows virtual machines to switch from running on the vSphere source host to the destination vSphere host. This whole process takes less than two seconds on gigabit Ethernet networks. This capability is possible through virtual switches, vCenter servers, and even remotely.

vSphere Protect VM and Data

vSphere provides a comprehensive and policy-driven comprehensive security architecture. Secure your infrastructure with support for TPM 2.0 and virtual TPM hardware modules. Encrypted VMs not only increase VM security posture, but also make protecting data easily, such as mouse clicks. 

Protect moving data with encrypted vMotion in various instances and vCenter versions. vSphere makes it easy to migrate your data center safely, whether you move data in a hybrid cloud environment (between local and public cloud) or data centers that are geographically distributed.

vSphere Improve Efficiency and Simplify Management

Dramatically reduces the time needed to patch or increase ESXi with Single Boot and vSphere Fast Boot. Single Reboot significantly cuts reboot time when upgrading the main version by cutting the number of host reboots needed for only one reboot. And with vSphere Quick Boot, the rest of the reboot time drastically decreases thanks to the ability to skip hardware initialization steps in vSphere
