Run Containerized Apps Alongside Existing Workloads
By leveraging the existing capabilities of vSphere, IT Ops can run containerized apps alongside traditional VMs on the same infrastructure without having to build out a specialized container infrastructure stack.
Leverage Your Existing Infrastructure and Scale Easily
Use your existing SDDC to avoid costly and time-consuming re-architecture of your infrastructure that results in silos. Scale application deployments instantly.
Combine Portability with Security, Visibility, and Management
By running containers as VMs, IT teams can use vSphere’s core capabilities that are essential to running containerized apps in a production environment, such as enterprise-class security, networking, storage, resource management, and compliance.
Provide Developers with a Docker-Compatible Interface
Developers already familiar with Docker can develop applications in containers through a Docker-compatible interface and then provision them through the self-service management portal or UI.
Quickly deploy vCenter Server as a pre-packaged, optimized, and easy-to-maintain virtual appliance. Integration of vSphere Update Manager into vCenter Server Appliance makes patching and upgrading fast and easy. RESTful APIs allow for the easily repeatable deployment of vCenter Server Appliance from a template, speeding up deployment times as well as reducing human error.
Allocate and optimize resources for maximum efficiency with our server management software. Manage up to 70,000 virtual machines and 5,000 hosts across 15 vCenter Server instances. Use vSphere HA and DRS clusters to support up to 64 hosts and 8,000 virtual machines. Replicate roles, permissions, and licenses across the infrastructure so you can simultaneously log in, view, and search the inventories of all vCenter Servers. Link multiple vCenter Server Appliances and increase the visibility without using costly load balancers.
Extensibility and Scalability Across Hybrid Cloud
Seamlessly extend your on-premises environment to vSphere-based public clouds, such as VMware Cloud on AWS, no matter which version of vCenter Server you are running. Large-scale management is now improved: Manage up to 2,000 hosts and 35,000 virtual machines with a single vCenter Server instance.
Protect the vCenter Server Appliance and related services with native high availability (HA) and a recovery time objective of less than 10 minutes. vSphere provides native active-passive HA capability, certified for vCenter Server Appliance.
Back up your appliance to a set of files while vCenter Server is still up and running with native backup and restore. Restore by simply pointing a fresh appliance to the backup location and files will be downloaded to the new vCenter Server Appliance. No third-party products required.
Schedule your vCenter Server Appliance backups and control the number of backups retained via the native backup scheduler.
