Features of VMware

Minimise Server Downtime

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.

Zero Downtime Maintenance

VMware vMotion enables the live migration of running virtual machines between physical servers with zero downtime, continuous service availability, and complete transaction integrity.

Improve Server Performance

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.

Managing Power Consumption

VMware DPM (Distributed Power Management) continuously optimises power consumption in the data center 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 better for the environment.

Expert VMware Partner

As a VMware partner, we have access to the highest quality training along with VMware software such as vCloud Director.

Enterprise Power

Our VMware enterprise plus licensing allows us to offer up to 40CPU cores and 256GB RAM per cloud server.

Hyve DDS blocks floods and large numbers of unwanted connections. Performed in real time, the inspection has no effect on performance.

VMware Firewalls

VMware firewalls provide enhanced security. All firewalls can be fully managed by our expert network team.

VLAN Segregation

All client networks are segregated by VLAN preventing unauthorised client-to-client server access.

Effective Anti-Virus Protection

Our fast and effective anti-virus and malware protection provides unparalleled protection, without increasing IT management or impacting on system performance.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

VPNs provide an additional layer of security by enforcing administration via an encrypted connection. Firewall ports are closed, providing protection from hackers. VPNs can be configured between our data center and your office or PC.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

SSL certificates protect your customers from hackers and identity thieves by ensuring that all data is encrypted.

IPS (Intrusion Prevention System)

Hyve IPS blocks malicious, harmful or unwanted network activity. Performed in real time, the inspection ensures that good network traffic is accepted without noticeable delay. IPS offers protection from attacks such as SQL injection and cross site scripting.
