Vmware Vsphere 8 Standard
VMware vSphere?, the industry-leading virtualization platform, empowers users to virtualize scale-up and scale-out applications with confidence, redefines availability and simplifies the virtual data center. The result is a highly available, resilient, on-demand infrastructure that is the ideal foundation of any cloud environment.
Key benefits of Vmware Vsphere 8 Standard
With the support of more than 3,000 applications from more than 2,000 ISV partners, vSphere is the trusted platform for any application.
Efficiency through automation
Achieve consolidation ratios of 15:1 or more and improve hardware utilization from 5-15 percent to as much as 80 percent or more without sacrificing performance.
Freedom of choice
Use a common, standards based platform to leverage existing IT assets alongside next-generation IT services, and enhance vSphere through open APIs with solutions from a global ecosystem of leading technology providers.
Dramatically lower IT costs
Reduce capital expenditures by up to 70 percent and operational expenditures by up to 30 percent to achieve 20?30 percent lower IT infrastructure costs for each application running on vSphere.
Agility with control
Respond quickly to changing business needs without sacrificing security or control, and deliver zero-touch infrastructure with built-in availability, scalability and performance guarantees for all business-critical applications running on vSphere.
Maximize uptime across your cloud infrastructure
Reduce unplanned downtime and eliminate planned downtime for server and storage maintenance.
What's New in the VMware vSphere 8.0 Platform
VMware vSphere 8.0 introduces many enhancements to VMware vSphere Hypervisor, VMware virtual machines, VMware vCenter Server, virtual storage, and virtual networking.
Virtual Machine Enhancements
This enhancement ensures that all regions benefit from the increase in RAM, enabling the virtual machine to scale without requiring any downtime. Support for workloads that must be protected using Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) has been improved. In addition to the currently supported platforms, Microsoft Windows Server 2022 and Microsoft SQL Server 2022 have been added. This includes support for both WSFC and AlwaysOn Availability Groups.
Enhanced Linked Mode
Because PSCs replicate all the information traditionally required for linked mode, linked mode is now automatically enabled for any vCenter Server deployment. This is true when using a Windows install, vCenter Server Appliance, or a mix of the two, as long as all vCenter Server instances are joined to the same vCenter Single Sign-On domain. This eliminates extra configuration steps traditionally required to establish linked mode and enables vCenter Server Appliance to now utilize it.
The performance improvements
The performance improvements include login times that are up to 13 times faster, right-click menus that are visible and usable four times faster, and other actions that are now at least 50 percent faster.
New vSphere vMotion enhancements enable greater flexibility when designing vSphere architectures that were previously restricted to a single vCenter Server system due to scalability limits and multisite or metro design constraints.
Cost-effective failover protection
vSphere HA delivers the availability required by most applications running in virtual machines, independent of the OS and application running in it. It provides uniform, cost-effective failover protection against hardware and OS outages within a virtualized IT environment.
Multisite Content Library
The Content Library simplifies virtual machine template management and distribution for organizations that have several vCenter Server systems across geographic locations. It centrally manages virtual machine templates, ISO images, and scripts, and it performs the content delivery of associated data from the published catalog to the subscribed catalog at other sites.
