vSphere Enterprise Plus

VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus enhances application performance and availability to boost your business productivity and take control of resource management. Rapidly provision and deploy workloads in your virtual environment and move an entire running virtual machine from one physical server to another with no downtime.

VMware vSphere, the industry leading virtualization and cloud platform, is the efficient and secure platform for your hybrid clouds. It provides a powerful, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility that accelerates your digital transformation to hybrid cloud and success in the digital economy. vSphere supports both existing and next-gen workloads through simple and efficient management at scale, to elevate the customer experience to an entirely new level; comprehensive built-in security that starts at the core, via an operationally simple policy-driven model; a universal application platform supporting new workloads and leveraging hardware innovations for enhanced performance; and a seamless hybrid cloud experience with easy visibility, migration and management of workloads between on-premises and public cloud. You can now run, manage, connect, and secure your applications in a common operating environment, across your hybrid cloud.

VMware vSphere Platinum is a new edition of vSphere, that secures applications, infrastructure, data, and access with the combined capabilities of core VMware vSphere and VMware AppDefense™. It enables a simple and powerful way to maintain existing workflows, while supporting collaboration amongst vSphere Admins, and security, compliance and application teams; making for less disruptive response and remediation in case of a security incident. vSphere Platinum delivers a purpose-built solution that secures infrastructure and applications by leveraging the hypervisor, and the power of machine learning, in a way that is built-in, operationally simple, and with minimal overhead or impact on performance.

What is VMware vSphere?

Unleash a powerful, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility that accelerates your digital transformation to hybrid cloud. vSphere is the industry-leading server virtualization software and the heart of a modern SDDC, helping you run, manage, connect, and secure your applications in a common operating environment across clouds.

New advanced security capabilities, fully integrated into the hypervisor and powered by machine learning, provide better visibility, protection, and response times for security incidences. With vSphere, you can support new workloads and use cases while keeping pace with the growing needs and complexity of your infrastructure.

  • 3x reduced memory usage with vCenter Server Appliance 6.7

Use Cases:

Data Center Consolidation and Business Continuity

Simplify data center operations and management at scale, increase business efficiency, and decrease CapEx and OpEx through virtualization.

Enhanced App Performance and Hybrid Cloud

Take advantage of the latest innovations in hardware to turbocharge the performance of existing applications. Support new workloads and use cases, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Balance workloads and prioritize resources to ensure top performance for your critical applications. Extend on-premises environments to vSphere-based public clouds, such as VMware Cloud on AWS, and enjoy a streamlined hybrid cloud experience.

Virtualized Big Data

Simplify your big data infrastructure management while making it more cost effective. VMware is the best platform for big data just as it is for traditional applications. Minimize downtime with uniform, cost-effective failover protection; easily organize, prioritize, and share data center resources; and provision virtual networking across multiple hosts and clusters from a centralized interface.

Legacy Unix to Virtual Linux Migration

Get high performance, enhanced availability, larger VM capacity, and disaster recovery capabilities when you migrate legacy Unix infrastructure to virtualized Linux. Move an entire running virtual machine from one physical server to another, without downtime, and gain rich troubleshooting capabilities, including rollback and recovery for patching and updating.

Application and Infrastructure Security

Secure applications, infrastructure, data, and access with a comprehensive, built-in architecture and a simple, policy-driven model. Protect apps running on vSphere using machine learning and behavioral analytics to monitor threats and automate responses. Get faster visibility and protection with a scalable solution, no agents to manage, and minimal overhead.

Containerized Modern Apps
