VMware vSphere for SMB
VMware vSphere Small Business
Protect Your Small and Midsize Business with VMware vSphere
Protect your business with vSphere, the most trusted and reliable virtualization platform in the industry. With vSphere, you can simplify your IT footprint and maximize utilization of your existing IT infrastructure. Allow multiple virtual machines to share the computing, networking and storage resources of a single physical machine. Provide application availability with vSphere’s built-in business continuity features, policy-based service level management and integrated network security and firewall protection.
Are you an existing vSphere Enterprise customer? For a limited time, you can upgrade vSphere Enterprise Plus to VMware vCloud Suite for Free!
Protect Your Business
Protect your business data across your virtual machines with automated backup. Eliminate planned downtime with vSphere vMotion, which allows you to migrate your running virtual machines between servers without any service disruption. Provide application availability with vSphere High Availability, which automatically restarts your virtual machines on other servers when server failure is detected. Enable all these business continuity features without the costs and complexity of shared storage hardware with vSphere Storage Appliance.
vSphere also provides the foundation for disaster recovery with simple, cost-efficient replication that occurs at the virtual machine level. Add vCenter Site Recovery Manager to automate disaster recovery to a secondary site.
With vSphere's management automation, you can free yourself from everyday menial tasks. Provision new applications in minutes, not weeks, and accelerate change request response times from hours or days to just minutes. Ensure your most important applications get the compute, network and storage resources they need by prioritizing workloads with policy-based automation.
Save on IT
Reduce your capital and operational costs by consolidating servers. Improve your bottom line by getting more out of your existing servers and limiting the physical resources you need to manage, power, store and buy. Many small businesses increase their x86 server utilization rates from 5-15% up to 60-80% and achieve consolidation ratios of more than 15:1 after virtualizing with vSphere.
