VMware is one of the industry’s biggest names in virtualization. From virtualized servers to virtual desktop infrastructures, VMware helps companies reduce costs, condense their data centers, and streamline management by abstracting intelligence from hardware.
In the early 2000s, server virtualization was the big breakthrough in the technology industry. Companies were able to drastically reduce the size of their data centers, cut costs, and still provide that same levels of service. Today, those same principles that powered the server vritualization revolution are now being applied to other areas of the environment, and VMware is leading the charge.
One intriguing area is in virtual desktop infrastructure. In that arena, Mindsight and VMware offer Horizon View. It takes the operating system of a PC or laptop (normally installed directly on the device) and virtualizes it. Now, that same desktop operating system is hosted in the data center and accessed remotely. The IT team no longer needs to update endpoints manually, and spinning up a new desktop instance is as easy as creating a virtual machine. On the user side, employees can access the same, seamless desktop experience on any device from anywhere they can access the corporate network.
This is just one example of the innovation that they bring to the industry every year. Other exciting areas include software defined networking, virtual storage area networks, and their public cloud platform.

Across the IT industry, virtualized and “software defined” solutions are rising in popularity. Whether the desktop or the network, new technologies are hitting the market to either virtualize or abstract the intelligence of the data center. Less discussed, but no less viable, of these technologies…Read More
Today in IT, one of the biggest trends (outside of cloud) is virtualization. Whether it’s network virtualization, storage virtualization, server virtualization or more, this strategy enables a company to do more with less. For instance in the case of server virtualization, administrators can run the…Read More
Hyperconverged infrastructure is a radical shift in data center planning and design. Normally, the core elements of a data center—computing, storage, and networking—are all separate components and separate pieces of hardware. In a hyperconverged infrastructure, however, all those elements are combined into a single box.…Read More
