VMware is the industry’s leading server virtualisation software provider, offering the fastest and most reliable platform for cloud computing. With a proven track record and advanced features including HA, vMotion and DRS, Hyve consider VMware vSphere to be the first and only choice of visualisation software for enterprise-grade cloud hosting.
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.
Reduce Costs By Managing Power Consumption
VMware DPM (Distributed Power Management) continuously optimises power consumption in the data centre. When virtual machines in a DRS cluster need fewer resources such as during nights and weekends, DPM consolidates workloads onto fewer servers and powers off the rest to reduce power consumption. When virtual machine resource requirements increase, DPM brings powered-down hosts back online to ensure service levels are met. Efficiently managing power consumption allows us to reduce outgoings and pass these savings onto our clients. A system running DPM is also kinder on the environment.
