VMware vCenter Server is a centralized, proactive, and extensible virtual infrastructure management platform. Delivering simplified management, automated control, and enhanced visibility from a single console application.
vCenter Server delivers centralized management of virtualized hosts and virtual machines from a single console. With vCenter Server, a single administrator can manage double the amount of workloads when managing a virtual infrastructure verses a physical infrastructure.
Designed with an open, plug-in architecture, VMware vCenter Server has been built to handle large, enterprise-class IT environments from the ground up. For example, vCenter Server can support up to 10,000 running VM’s and 1,000 hosts in a single instance. Additionally, VMware vCenter Linked Mode enables a scalable architecture across multiple vCenter Server instances for management of a maximum of 30,000 VM’s.
Meeting the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of business-critical applications day-in and day-out requires more than a reactive management approach. VMware vCenter Server offers automatic, proactive management to maximum the performance of your virtualized infrastructure. Features such as VMware vSphere High Availability, VMware vSphere Fault Tolerance, and more round out the dynamic capabilities of vCenter Server.
