Multisite organizations are reducing the number of servers in their branch offices by moving applications and server capacity to the central datacenter. Yet, they continue to place a few essential applications locally because of performance, availability, or compliance requirements. By making use of x86 blade servers, these lean branch offices can lower equipment and operating costs, right-size and simplify infrastructure, and improve hardware provisioning and remote management.
In this session, you will also learn how deploying vSphere in remote office and branch offices can greatly simplify operations through centralized management and control through vCenter. In addition VMware High Availability and Fault Tolerance keep business critical application “always up and running” in the branch. This session will demonstrate how customers have achieved operational consistency between branch and datacenter application deployment while still maintaining optimal application experience for users in the branch office.
