Who we are?
VMware vSphere is an umbrella term for VMware’s server virtualisation
platform product. It utilises various products and technologies such as
ESXi, a Type 1 hypervisor, vCenter Server and a few other important features
to provide a complete infrastructure for virtualization.
VMware vSphere works through two core components: ESXi and vCenter Server.
The virtualization platform, ESXi, is where virtual machines and virtual
appliances are created and can be run.
vCenter Server is the service which allows for management of multiple hosts
connected within a network and pool host resources.
This creates a solution that powers a computing environment for modern
application through the use of any combination of VMs, containers and
The VMware vSphere Hypervisor is a free, bare-metal solution for users,
which allows for virtualizing servers and consolidating applications.
The hypervisor lacks some enterprise features of the full VMware ESXi such
as vMotion, Storage vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler, vSphere Data
protection and High Availability.
VMware vSphere transforms data centres into aggregated computing
infrastructures with the use of CPU, storage and networking resources. The
infrastructure is managed by vSphere as a unified operating environment, and
provides tools that help administer the data centres used within the
VMware vSphere provides unified management for containers and VMs by
delivering developer-ready infrastructure, scalability without compromise,
simplicity in operations and the ability to boost infrastructure and data
The VMware vSphere client is a web-based application connected to the
vCenter Server for the purpose of managing installations and handling
inventory objects in a vSphere deployment for IT administrators.
ESXi is a hypervisor at the core of the vSphere product suite. It is a Type
1 hypervisor, also called bare metal hypervisor that runs on the hardware of
a host server without an operating system.
We provide VMware ESXI Certified Supermicro Servers that provide
peace-of-mind in virtualising a wide range of resource-intensive
ESXi hosts are licensed with vSphere licenses. This also means that the
hosting capacity is determined by physical CPUs on the host and the number
of cores in each physical CPU.
ESXI stands for ‘Elastic Sky X integrated’ by VMware as a platform for
enterprise server virtualization.
ESXi works by providing a virtualization layer that integrates resources
such as CPU, storage, memory and networking of a physical host into multiple
In addition, the hypervisor used by VMware ESXi is referred to as vmkernel.
This receives the requests form virtual machines for resources and then
presents the requests to physical hardware.
ESXI provides many benefits for both better business outcomes and IT savings
VMware NSX Cloud allows consistent networking and security for applications that run
natively in public clouds
VMware NSX is a virtualization platform specialised for network, this
platform enables the integration of virtual networks on physical networks
and virtual server infrastructures.
VMware NSX is a solution that encapsulates traffic that is normally sent to
physical switches and routers inside an encapsulation protocol (such as STT,
VXLAN, and GRE). Therefore being compatible with physical network hardware
as it does not need to work with the network virtualisation.
VMware NSX is a solution that takes networking services that were
traditionally run on hardware – such as routing, firewalling, switching and
load balancing, and integrates them into software. Virtualized networks
helps companies stay competitive through the security and network
virtualization, cost savings and time to market.
VMware NSX has four different licensing editions: standard, advanced,
enterprise and remote office/branch offices (ROBO).
Each licensing tier cater to distinctive features and scenarios, and are
licensed per CPU socket.

A platform that delivers virtual desktops and apps efficiently and securely across hybrid
cloud for the best digital user experience.
VMware Horizon is a virtual desktop infrastructure solution which can also
fully integrate with the rest of VMware’s product line.
The VMware Horizon VDI solution enables greater flexibility and security
compared to terminal services, as user data is stored, managed, updated and
backed-up centrally on virtualized servers.
Based on VMware vSphere, Horizon uses the vSphere environment for virtual
User desktops are now run on ESXi hosts as VMs, and are able to connect
virtual desktops through personal computers, and other devices such as
smartphones or tablets.
VMware Horizon can be categorised into three different licensing editions:
VMware vCenter Server provides centralised management to vSphere virtual
infrastructure. This provides IT administrators with security and
availability, simplification in day-to-day tasks, and reduces the complexity
of managing virtual infrastructure.
VMware vCenter is used to deliver IT infrastructure at the lowest total
costs and at the same time consistently meeting SLAs. With the main features
of providing centralised and proactive management of virtual infrastructure,
businesses are able to respond to requirements faster, at the best
VMware vCenter works by providing a centralised management solution for
virtualised hosts and virtual machines from a single console.
This provides deep visibility into the configurator of critical components
of the virtual infrastructure, maximises key capabilities of vSphere and
provides extensible plug-in architecture to support a broad range of
additional capabilities from VMware and its partners.
Licensing a vCenter Server system requires a vCenter Server licenses that
have per-instance capacity.
VMware vCenter can be categorised into three different licensing editions:
