Downtime, whether planned or unplanned, brings considerable costs. However, solutions that 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, you can increase the baseline level of availability provided for all applications and provide higher levels of availability more easily and cost effectively. With vSphere, you can:
Provide high availability independent of hardware, operating system, and applications.
Reduce the 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.
