Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab
Organizations looking to implement desktop and app virtualization traditionally play a guessing game where storage is concerned. When considering local and physical storage, determining what would be necessary for the virtualized world is difficult and can be overwhelming. This is especially true when determining how virtualizing desktops will impact the storage architecture. Organizations risk over sizing their environment thereby wasting CapEx, or under-sizing and potentially ruining the user experience. Software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware Virtual SAN, provide simplified solutions with high performance data stores that offer fine-grained scalability with linearly-predictable performance as demand grows. Dell’s validated and certified desktop virtualization solutions incorporate vSphere and Virtual SAN, and provide a complete end-to-end solution that allows companies to grow and expand without large capital investments in SAN hardware.

While some distributed enterprises look to the cloud to reduce server sprawl and centralize operations, in many cases, the cloud simply isn’t feasible. Maybe the offices are in remote locations with limited Internet service or low-bandwidth connectivity causes issues such as latency and availability. Download the solutions brief to discover why VCE VxRail hyper-converged appliances from Dell EMC are ideal for consolidating multiple applications in a remote location onto a single, high-performance and high-availability platform that’s easy to deploy and manage.
This handout outlines how EMC integrates with VMware more than any other vendor, how EMC VNX is built with virtual environments in mind and how EMC does the most to enable customers to properly implement and maximize the benefits for VMware virtualization.
Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.
