Downtime, whether planned or unplanned, brings with it considerable costs. However, solutions to ensure higher levels of availability have traditionally been costly, hard to implement, and difficult to manage.
VMware software makes it simpler and less expensive to provide higher levels of availability for important applications. With vSphere, organizations can easily increase the baseline level of availability provided for all applications as well as provide higher levels of availability more easily and cost effectively. With vSphere, you can:
Provide higher availability independent of hardware, operating system, and applications.
Reduce planned downtime for common maintenance operations.
Provide automatic recovery in cases of failure.
vSphere makes it possible to reduce planned downtime, prevent unplanned downtime, and recover rapidly from outages.
