As mentioned in last week’s blog “6 Reasons Why VMware Leads Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in Virtualization Technology,” SoftwareONE holds technical competencies in each of VMware’s 3 defined areas:
1. Software Defined Data Center
- Server Virtualization
- Business Continuity
- Software-Defined Storage
- Management Operations
2. End User Computing
- Desktop Virtualization
3. Hybrid Cloud
- Hybrid Cloud
VMware developed several solutions to address the technical challenges customers may have around these areas, but the below three are considered VMware’s flagship solutions for supporting the underlying virtualization infrastructure:
- vSphere with Operations Management supports the most trusted virtualization platform, vSphere, with critical operational enhancements in performance monitoring and capacity management. As clients rapidly expand their environments, SoftwareONE assists IT decision-makers with management solutions for their virtual technology. vSphere with Operations Management improves an organization’s virtual performance with predictive analytics to avoid disruption of virtual infrastructures.
- Virtual SAN is a new software-defined storage tier, pooling compute- and direct-attached storage resources with clustering server disks and flash to create radically simple and resilient shared storage for virtual machines. Virtual SAN automates storage provisioning and management with a self-tuning VM-centric approach by enabling a scale-out architecture with built-in read/write SSD caching.
- vCloud Air Disaster Recovery is a cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service solution, enabling organizations to strengthen disaster recovery plans in their VMware vSphere environment. SoftwareONE recommends to back-up all virtual machines in their datacenter and individual applications with vCloud Air DR.
