Virtualization is the process of creating a software-based representation of something rather than a physical one. Virtualization can apply to applications, servers, storage, and networks and is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses. The term virtualization broadly describes the separation of a resource or request for a service from the underlying physical delivery of that service. With virtual memory, for example, computer software gains access to more memory than is physically installed, via the background swapping of data to disk storage. Similarly, virtualization techniques can be applied to other IT infrastructure layers – including networks, storage, laptop or server hardware, operating systems and applications.
The software-defined data center architecture enables a fully automated, zero-downtime infrastructure for any application, and any hardware, now and in the future.
Aspen Systems partners with VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, accelerates our customers’ digital transformation journey by enabling enterprises to master a software-defined approach to business and IT. With VMware solutions, organizations are creating exceptional experiences by mobilizing everything, responding faster to opportunities with modern data and apps hosted across hybrid clouds, and safeguarding customer trust with a defense-in-depth approach to cybersecurity.
vSphere helps you get the best performance, availability and efficiency from your infrastructure and applications. It’s the ideal foundation for any cloud environment. VMware vSphere is the industry leading virtualization platform. It serves as the foundation for the software defined data center, and gives you choice as to how to build and operate your cloud environments.
vSphere with Operations Management takes virtualization to the next level with intelligent operations management. It provides you better insights, resulting in improved performance and availability.
vSphere allows you to virtualize applications with confidence, redefine availability, transform storage for virtual machines, and simplify management of your data center.
VMware vSphere Hypervisor is a free bare-metal hypervisor that virtualizes servers so you can consolidate your applications on less hardware. The vSphere Hypervisor, known in many circles as “ESXi”, for the name of the underlying hypervisor architecture, is a bare-metal hypervisor that installs directly on top of your physical server and partitions it into multiple virtual machines. Each virtual machine shares the same physical resources as the other virtual machines and they can all run at the same time. Unlike other hypervisors, all management functionality of vSphere is done through remote management tools. There is no underlying operating system, reducing the install footprint to less than 150MB.
VMware vCenter Server provides a centralized platform for managing your VMware vSphere environments, so you can automate and deliver a virtual infrastructure with confidence.
