Product Description
VMware ESX Server is the foundation for dynamic, self-optimizing IT infrastructure. ESX Server is a robust, production-proven virtualization layer that abstracts processor, memory, storage and networking resources into multiple virtual machines. ESX Server 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, ESX Server provides advanced resource management, high availability, and security features that deliver the highest levels of performance, scalability and robustness required for enterprise IT environments.
