Instant Clone

Reduces provisioning times, especially beneficial for VDI applications

Application Performance

Product Features VMware vSphere Standard VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus
vSphere Bitfusion

Delivery of AI/ML infrastructure applications using GPUs.

(Add-on required)*

Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS)

Redesigned with a more workload centric approach, DRS balances resources allocated to workloads in a vSphere cluster; versus the previously used cluster-wide deviation model; also resulting in an improved cycle time.

Storage DRS

Automated load balancing now looks at storage characteristics to determine the best place for a given virtual machine’s data when it is created and used overtime.

Distributed Power Management (DPM)

Optimizes power consumption by turning off hosts during periods of reduced demand.

Storage Policy-Based Management

Allows common management across storage tiers and dynamic storage class-of-service automation via a policy-driven control plane

I/O Controls (Network and Storage)

Prioritizes storage and Network access by continuously monitoring I/O load of a storage volume and over the network, and dynamically allocating available I/O resources to virtual machines according to business needs.

Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) Support

Allows one PCI Express (PCIe) adapter to be presented as multiple separate logical devices to virtual machines. Allows users to offload I/O processing and reduce network latency.

vSphere Persistent Memory

Leverages Persistent Memory to get DRAM like performance with flash like prices.

NVIDIA GRID vGPU

Enables native 2D and 3D graphics performance for virtual machines. Supports multiple vGPUs per VM

Proactive HA

Receive server health information and migrate virtual machines from degraded hosts before problems occur.

 

Accelerated Graphics for Virtual Machines
