Centralized Management Compatibility

vCenter Server – Provides management for vSphere deployments and is available in two editions:

  • vCenter Standard: Provides large scale management of VMware vSphere deployments for rapid provisioning, monitoring, orchestration, and control of virtual machines (up to 1000 vSphere hosts).
  • vCenter Foundation: Provides powerful management tools for smaller environments (up to 3 vSphere hosts) looking to rapidly provision, monitor, and control virtual machines.
  • vCenter Server Foundation
  • vCenter Server Standard
  • vCenter Server Foundation
  • vCenter Server Standard

Product Features

Reduce storage needs by utilizing dynamic storage that expands to meet the requirements of the virtual machine with no performance degradation.

Reduce time spent on routine remediation by automating the tracking, patching and updating of your vSphere hosts, as well as the VM’s applications and operating systems.

Protect your data through fast agent-less backups to disk, with de-duplication to minimize use of backup disk space.

Minimize downtime with automated restart of your VMs following physical machine failure.

Eliminate application downtime from planned server maintenance by migrating running VMs between hosts.

Achieve scalable backup without disrupting applications or users by leveraging supported 3rd party backup software that leverage these APIs.
Virtual Serial Port Concentrator

Connect over the network via the serial port concentrator to the serial port console on any server.
Hot Add

Increase capacity by adding CPU and memory to virtual machines when needed without disruption or downtime.

Simplify security management by configuring and maintaining your multiple zones of security within software among shared hosts rather than across separate siloed physical environments.

Provide continuous availability for applications with zero data loss in the event of server failures.

Improve performance and scalability by leveraging efficient array-based operations.
Storage APIs for Multipathing

Improve performance and reliability of IO from vSphere to storage by leveraging third party storage vendor multi-path software capabilities.

Avoid application downtime for planned storage maintenance by migrating live VM disk files across storage arrays.

Align resources usage with business priority by automatically load balancing across hosts and optimize power consumption by turning off hosts during lower load periods.

Prioritizes storage access by continuously monitoring I/O load of a storage volume and dynamically allocating available I/O resources to virtual machines according to business needs.

Prioritizes network access by continuously monitoring I/O load over the network and dynamically allocating available I/O resources to specific flows according to business needs.

Centralize provisioning, administration, and monitoring using cluster-level network aggregation.

Simplify host deployment and compliance by creating VMs from configuration templates.
Auto Deploy

Deploy more vSphere hosts in minutes and “on the fly”.

Automated load balancing now looks at storage characteristics to determine the best place for a given virtual machine’s data to live when it is created and then used over time.

Reduce the steps in the selection of storage resources by grouping storage according to a user-defined policy.
