Virtualizing Business-Critical Applications on VMware vSphere

Business agility depends on IT agility, and VMware vSphere enables IT to deliver. By standardizing on the vSphere internal cloud to virtualize 100 percent of your applications, you can reduce capital and operational costs by 50 percent, while providing a more dynamic platform for applications that streamlines the entire "build-run-manage" application cycle. While virtualizing business-critical applications presents some unique challenges, the main legacy concerns around virtualization-specifically performance and ISV support-are a thing of the past.

Run your business-critical applications, including Exchange, SQL, SAP, and Oracle, on VMware vSphere with breakthrough performance and outstanding reliability.
