You can reduce energy consumption by decreasing the number of servers in your data center. VMware server virtualization can reduce hardware requirements by a 15:1 ratio, enabling you to lessen the environmental impact of your organization’s IT without sacrificing reliability or service levels. Server and desktop hardware consolidation can also help you achieve a 20 to 30 percent lower cost per application, as well as defer data center construction costs by $1,000 per square foot. VMware vSphere with Operations Management allows for a 50 to 70 percent higher virtual machine density per host than commodity offerings.

Applications and data can reside and be accessible anywhere. With VMware NSX Software Defined Networking you can reduce the time to provision entire networks in software from weeks to seconds. It abstracts virtual networks from the underlying physical network, providing the flexibility to run on top of any network hardware. With improved operational efficiency through automation, network operators can achieve faster deployment and greater agility. Enables network micro segmentation.

Provisioning VMware NSX Software Defined Networking brings security inside the data center with automated, fine—grained policies tied to the virtual machines. It enables micro segmentation to significantly reduce the lateral spread of threats inside the data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology. VMware NSX abstracts networking from the underlying hardware and attaches networking and security policies to their associated workloads.
