Performance of VMware vCenter 5.0 in Remote Offices and Branch Offices

As VMware vCenter has become the most popular tool to manage VMware vSphere ESXi hosts and virtual machines (VMs), customers have deployed vCenter in many networks, such as local area network (LAN) with high-bandwidth and low-latency links, and wide area network (WAN) with low-bandwidth and high-latency links. Deploying vCenter in a remote offices and branch offices (ROBO) environment is a representative use case for customers who have ESXi hosts distributed over large geographical distances. These customers choose to centralize the management of ESXi hosts and VMs by keeping only one vCenter and configuring it to manage ESXi hosts over WAN.

Cloud Native Databases with Kubernetes Persistent Storage on Dell EMC VxFlex family

whitePaper | December 19, 2019

Modern data center workloads have varying business value and characteristics for the workload and data that govern the performance, throughput, capacity, availability, data protection, and data services requirements. Shrinking IT budgets, push for greater efficiency, and consolidation and workload requirements have made it necessary for the underlying infrastructure to deliver high performance, scalability, resiliency, and most importantly -- flexibility. VxFlex family is an engineered system for Dell EMC designed on five super power principals to meet the key infrastructure requirements. VxFlex family delivers.

3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Selection Guide for VDI on Cisco UCS with VMware Horizon 8

whitePaper | December 22, 2021

Choosing the CPU for enterprise applications is not an easy task, whether you use a simple quick calculation to determine your needs or perform exhaustive capacity planning with analytical model simulations for workloads and their future growth. Often, lack of details (or inaccurate information) about the input data and the workload type leads to uncertain estimations about the rightsizing of the hardware (CPU type, core count and clock speed, memory capacity, etc.), leading to suboptimal resource utilization.

Managing VMware vSphere Using Microsoft System Center Increases Costs and Complexity

whitePaper | May 18, 2022

A growing number of enterprises have begun to consider multiple hypervisor virtualization solutions. Some vendors claim that they offer hypervisor-agnostic or heterogeneous hypervisor management solutions, as Microsoft Corporation does today with its Microsoft System Center 2012 suite. Microsoft makes this claim for the latest release of its comprehensive System Center suite for systems management, with support not only for Microsoft’s own Hyper-V hypervisor, but also for VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer hypervisors.

Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment. Because of this ambiguity, virtualization can almost be applied to any and all parts of an IT infrastructure. For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.
