By allowing IT departments to flexibly respond to changing needs in on-premise and virtual server hosting environments, VMware's vSphere can enable businesses to constantly adapt to meet customer needs, according to a Sys-Con Media report.
By using vSphere, businesses can access an internal or hosted cloud computing solution that entirely virtualizes their operations. By accomplishing this, organizations can reduce spending and maintenance costs, letting the business focus financial investments on developing revenue. According to the report, companies can reduce costs by as much as 50 percent.
Virtualizing business-critical applications can be a challenging process, the report said, as legacy software can create compatibility issues and create performance issues. However, a well-managed virtualization solution using VMware's vSphere is capable of virtualizing applications from multiple product generations and improving overall performance.
The report explains vSphere is capable of compatibility with almost any software, creating an environment that allows businesses to virtualize their critical software and applications, such as Microsoft Exchange and SQL server.
A recent report from the Hosting News said hybrid hosting solutions, such as virtual private servers, are becoming important as businesses are demanding more complex application and web hosting tools.
