VMware vCenter Server คืออะไร
VMware vCenter Server provides centralized management of vSphere virtual infrastructure. IT administrators can ensure security and availability, simplify day-to-day tasks, and reduce the complexity of managing virtual infrastructure.
How Does vCenter Server Work?
Centralized Control and Visibility at Every Level
vCenter Server provides centralized management of virtualized hosts and virtual machines from a single console. It gives administrators deep visibility into the configuration of the critical components of a virtual infrastructure—all from one place. With vCenter Server, virtual environments are easier to manage: a single administrator can manage hundreds of workloads, more than doubling typical productivity when managing physical infrastructure. As the vCenter Server Appliance is on Photon OS, there is no third party dependency for patches
and upgrades. Problem resolution times are cut dramatically with the inclusion of a complimentary license of Log Insight.
Virtual Infrastructure Delivered With Confidence
Consistently meeting business-critical application service-level agreements (SLAs) requires automated proactive management to maximize the capabilities of vSphere. Key capabilities enabled by vCenter Server include VMware vSphere vMotion®, VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler™, VMware vSphere High Availability (HA) and VMware vSphere Fault Tolerance. VMware
vRealize™ Orchestrator™ also gives administrators the ability to create and easily implement best-practice workflows.
With automated proactive management, vCenter Server allows service levels to be met by dynamically provisioning new services, balancing resources and automating high availability.
The open plug-in architecture of vCenter Server supports a broad range of additional capabilities from VMware and its partners. Hundreds of VMware partners integrate with vCenter Server, enabling new capabilities such as capacity management, compliance management, business continuity and storage monitoring. The vCenter Server APIs also allow integration of physical and virtual management tools for maximum flexibility.
VMware vCenter Hybrid Linked Mode allows extensibility across the on premises data center and a vSphere based public cloud. Administrators now have a single pane of glass for management and visibility across their hybrid cloud environment.
How Is vCenter Server Used?
Enterprises face ever-increasing pressure to deliver IT infrastructure at the lowest total costs while consistently meeting SLAs. By using centralized and proactive management of virtual infrastructure, enterprises can ensure that IT consistently meets the needs of business.
vSphere is the industry-leading virtualization platform. It enables users to run business-critical applications with confidence and respond to business requirements faster, while operating at the lowest cost possible.
Centralized Control and Visibility
HTML 5 Based vSphere Client – Responsive HTML5 based vSphere client provides bleeding edge functionality.
vCenter Single Sign-on – Simplify administration by allowing users to log in once and then access all instances of vCenter Server without further authentication.
Inventory Search – Have the entire vCenter Server inventory, including virtual machines, hosts, datastores and networks, at your fingertips.
Alerts and Notifications – Support new entities, metrics and events such as
datastore – and virtual machine–specific alarms. These alarms can trigger new automated workflows to remedy and preempt problems.
Native Backup and Restore – Out-of-the-box file based backup option with a simple user interface, removing reliance on 3rd party backup solutions to protect vCenter Servers and Platform Services Controllers.
Backup & Restore Scheduler – Schedule vCSA backups and control the number of backups retained. Use REST APIs to ease complexity of backup and restore.
Migration Tool – Allows both migration of data from a Windows vCenter Server 5.5 or 6.0 and an upgrade of vCenter Server Appliance.
vCenter Server High Availability (VCHA) – Protect the vCenter Server Appliance and related services with native High Availability and RTO of less than 10 minutes.
Host Profiles – Standardize and simplify how you configure and manage VMware ESXi™ host configurations. Capture the blueprint of a known, validated configuration — including networking, storage and security settings—and deploy it to many hosts, simplifying setup. Host profile policies can also monitor compliance.
Resource Management for Virtual Machines – Allocate processor and memory resources to virtual machines running on the same physical servers. Establish minimum, maximum and proportional resource shares for CPU, memory, disk and network bandwidth. Modify allocations while virtual machines are running. Enable applications to dynamically acquire more resources to accommodate peak performance.
Dynamic Resource Allocation – vCenter Server continuously monitors utilization across resource pools and intelligently allocates available resources among virtual machines according to predefined rules that reflect business needs and changing priorities. The result is a self-managing, highly optimized and efficient IT environment with built-in load balancing.
