VMware Server

Increase IT agility and flexibility with a VMware server

As a pioneer in virtualization software, VMware enables more efficient utilization of computer hardware and allows cloud providers to serve more users with existing physical hardware. A VMware server makes it possible to partition a physical server into multiple virtual machines, running Windows, Linux, Solaris, and NetWare operating systems and applications on the same physical hardware. A VMware server can also enable faster provisioning, reduce hardware costs, increase productivity and improve disaster recovery.

As a world-class provider of customized server, storage, and workstation solutions since 1986, Thinkmate offers the broadest portfolio in VMware-certified systems for clients in business, government, education, and high-performance computing markets.

The benefits of a VMware server

A VMware-certified server enables a physical server to be partitioned into multiple virtual machines, where each machine runs operating systems and applications just like a physical server. Each virtual machine (VM) can access all the physical host hardware resources such as CPU, networking, memory, and peripherals. Virtual machines can be saved as files and be provisioned and moved quickly, and are completely isolated and secure.

With a VMware server, IT teams can:

  • Simplify the provisioning of servers, provisioning servers in minutes without requiring new hardware.
  • Streamline software development and testing by enabling developers to use one server to create multiple environments with different operating systems.
  • Improve testing of patches, operating systems, and applications by enabling administrators to test in a secure VM environment and to use a snapshot feature to roll back to a clean state.
  • Simplify software evaluation by testing in ready-to-run virtual machines without installation configuration.
  • Use pre-built, ready-to-run virtual appliances, virtual hardware, operating systems, and application environments.
