Would you like to learn how to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization?
Modern businesses, these days, depend on virtualization to help them scale more efficiently while cutting hardware costs. VMware vSphere is the most popular server virtualization product in the market. If virtualization is an unfamiliar term and you are just being introduced to VMware, this article will close that information gap for you. So, keep reading and learn what vSphere does and how it fits into the big picture of your virtualization environment.
For your reference, there are three types of virtualization:
- Server Virtualization: It allows more than one server to work on one machine, instead of multiple machines. Virtual servers increase efficiency by minimizing operating costs, improving performance, deploying workloads more quickly, and getting rid of unnecessary server complexity.
- Network Virtualization: It recreates physical networks and allows applications to function independently of hardware. Hence, multiple computers are able to communicate and share data across remote locations.
- Desktop Virtualization: It gives employees access to their work computers without the actual hardware. Organizations can quickly respond to a company’s needs and opportunities, allowing branch offices, mobile employees and outsourced team members to access information they need without a hardware system being shipped to them.
