Virtualization with VMware

Delivering Cloud Hosting Computing Capacity on Demand

vmware hostingGoing beyond the limitations of traditional hosting to give our customers more uptime and more reliability with VMware cloud hosting solutions. Based on a foundation of proven products such as VMware Infrastructure 3, our solutions offer customers the ability for:

  • Very high redundancy approaching 100%.
  • Increase service availability and responsiveness to change.
  • Provisioning new services in minutes, and without additional hardware.
  • Disaster recovery: Leverage exclusive VMware features such as live migration of virtual machines to maximize and recover in minutes from unplanned outages.

VMware is the world’s leading provider of virtualization solutions and services. Through a pioneering virtualization approach, VMware solutions separate the operating system and application software from the underlying hardware, delivering significant improvements in efficiency, availability, flexibility and manageability.

VMware Virtualization vs. Traditional Hosting Solutions

VMware vs. shared hosting and VPS VMware vs. Dedicated Hosting
Hosted VMware virtual machines are superior to shared hosting on white boxes, stand alone web servers or on virtual private servers(VPS) because they get their own dedicated operating system and are fully isolated from other virtual machines on the server hardware. As a result, customers no longer have to worry about having their hosted service overrun by another service on the same box.
Hosted virtual machines deliver better availability than dedicated servers because they can be migrated from one server to another with little or no downtime. Hosted virtual machines are also easier to scale without purchasing additional hardware, and more secure because each virtual machine is completely abstracted from the hardware and isolated from other virtual machines.

It’s all about Availability…

Virtual machines that reside on the same physical server share underlying hardware resources, but are completely isolated from each other as if they were physically separated. This means that if one virtual machine experiences availability problems, it will not affect the availability of applications running on the other virtual machines on the server.

In the event that the underlying hardware itself experiences performance or availability problems, VMware provides the ability to migrate live applications automatically from one physical server to another with no interruption in service. This capability holds enormous advantages over physical infrastructures when it comes to backup and recovery, but VMware also leverages live migration to enable exclusive capabilities such as dynamic policy-based allocation of hardware resources.
