With VMware Infrastructure 3, VMware is ushering in a new era for data centers where industry-standard infrastructure farms can be managed as a shared utility and dynamically allocated to different business units or projects. New capacity can be added or removed non-disruptively based on business demand. Applications can be migrated automatically to available hardware resources. Hardware failures can be automatically overcome with minimal disruption. Business data can be protected with minimal impact to production SLAs. Applications can be provisioned instantly and recovered at the same or remote locations easily regardless of the operating system and hardware. Customers will be able to transform IT service levels, simplify and automate their infrastructure and deploy virtualization pervasively across their entire environment.
