VMware HA is a powerful feature providing high availability to all servers on the Hyve cloud. In the event of physical server or operating system failure, VMware HA automatically reboots the affected virtual machines onto other production servers with spare capacity.
VMware vMotion enables the live migration of running virtual machines between physical servers with zero downtime, continuous service availability, and complete transaction integrity.
VMware DRS (Distributed Resources Scheduler) continuously monitors resource utilisation across VMware hosting servers and intelligently allocates available resources among VMware virtual machines according to business needs.
VMware DPM (Distributed Power Management) continuously optimises power consumption in the data centre by powering down and up hosts based on power requirements. This allows us to reduce outgoings and pass these savings onto our clients. A system running DPM is also kinder on the environment.
As a VMware partner, we have access to the highest quality training along with VMware software such as vCloud Director.
Our VMware enterprise plus licensing allows us to offer up to 40CPU cores and 256GB RAM per cloud server.
