Building Your Cloud with VMware

vmware-virtualization

You can dramatically improve the availability, performance and utilization of your  name registration and IT resources through VMware virtualization, where the hardware resources of a single computer are used by multiple virtual machines to provide web hosting services. VMware offers the highest performing and most scalable virtualization and private cloud platform in the industry for even the most resource-intensive business critical applications at the lowest cost.

A hypervisor is a building block for cloud hosting virtualization, but you need an IT services platform that delivers the right software defined datacenter services for running your business. VMware’s vSphere is the only virtualization platform that delivers all of these.

Avoid unnecessary risk and downtime by choosing a robust and production-proven hypervisor as the foundation for your VMware hosting virtualized solution. Selecting the right hypervisor is the first step towards success in building a virtual infrastructure.

VMware is the proven choice for Linux VPS Hosting and virtualization from the desktop through the Sydney data center to the cloud. More than 500,000 customers of all sizes have chosen VMware as their virtualization infrastructure platform.

VMware High Availability

VMware HA (High Availability) is a utility that  the need for dedicated standby hardware and software in a virtualized environment. The utility is part of a virtualization suite called VMware Infrastructure 3.5. The term high availability refers to a system or component that is continuously operational for long periods.

Key features of VMware HA include:

  • Proactive monitoring of all physical servers and virtual machines
  • Automatic detection of server failure
  • Rapid restart of virtual machines affected by server failure
  • Optimal placement of virtual machines after server failure
  • Scalable availability up to 32 nodes across multiple servers

If an ESXi server fails, the VMs hosted on it will go down or at least become unreachable. VMware HA responds by restarting the VMs on other hosts in the cluster that survived the failure. This assumes that protected VMs are hosted on shared storage that is accessible to other hosts in the cluster. VMware High Availability should be used to maintain uptime on important but non-mission-critical VMs. While HA cannot prevent VM failure, it will get VMs back up and running with very little disturbance to the virtual infrastructure.

VMware HA is great in restoring normal operation atomically in a very short time. The benefits are without a doubt very valuable for the organization. Consider the value of HA for host failures that occur in the early hours of the morning, when IT is not immediately available to resolve the problem.

 

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing offers your business many benefits. It allows you to set up what is essentially a virtual office to give you the flexibility of connecting to your business anywhere, any time.

Businesses can save on the costs of  and maintaining servers, having dedicated IT staff on the payroll, and upgrading software. It’s also a way of accessing the most up-to-date software and applications, programs that you might put off installing due to the cost. The other major benefit of cloud computing is that it is scalable.

One of the most advantageous aspects of cloud computing is its capacity for large amounts of offsite data storage and file backups. Work can be instantly backed up to offsite servers, which means that if there is a technical failure or other problem at your business premises, valuable data is still accessible. Using the cloud can also mean having a greater level of security for your data, depending on your current security system.

Cloud computing enables companies to get agile, leverage sailing on demand, and run it like a utility.
