Virtualisation is the creation of a virtual (rather than physical) version of an IT environment, including an operating system (OS), a storage device, etc.
Virtualisation takes place on the same hardware platform after installing specific software – hypervisor.
The hypervisor is an additional layer between physical and virtual spheres; it manages the system’s hardware resources so they are distributed efficiently among virtual machines (VMs).
Simplify your IT infrastructure as you create a more dynamic and flexible datacenter with proven server and virtualisation solutions built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s leading virtualisation platform.
Why you should choose VMware
It is built on VMware vSphere, the world’s most proven, robust, and reliable virtualisation platform.
VMware provides solutions that cover the spectrum ranging form desktops to datacenters.
VMware allows you to run, manage, connect and secure applications across clouds and devices , so you get both freedom and control.
Virtualisation from VMware lowers capital expenses through server consolidation, while minimizing lost revenue by reducing downtime.
Hyper-V is Microsoft’s hardware virtualisation product. It lets you create and run a software version of a computer, called a virtual machine. Each virtual machine acts like a complete computer, running an operating system and programs
A Hyper-V virtual machine includes the same basic parts as a physical computer, such as memory, processor, storage, and networking. All these parts have features and options that you can configure different ways to meet different needs.
Each supported guest operating system has a customized set of services and drivers, called integration services, that make it easier to use the operating system in a Hyper-V virtual machine.
Features such as live migration, storage migration, and import/export make it easier to move or distribute a virtual machine.
