Product Description
VMware ESXi is the foundation for dynamic, self-optimizing IT infrastructure. VMware ESXi is a robust, production-proven virtualization layer that abstracts processor, memory, storage, and networking resources into multiple virtual machines. VMware ESXi allows IT organizations to increase hardware utilization and dramatically decrease capital and operating cost by sharing hardware resources across a large number of virtual machines that run side-by-side on the same server. Improving service levels even to the most resource-intensive applications, VMware ESXi provides advanced resource management, high availability, and security features that deliver the highest levels of performance, scalability, and robustness required for enterprise IT environments.
