LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 4 -- Infinitely Virtual, a leading provider of Cloud Server computing services, today announced its implementation of VMware vSphere 5.1, a comprehensive update of the world’s most widely deployed virtualization platform. The foundation of the VMware vCloud Suite, vSphere 5.1 includes more than 100 enhancements and new features aimed at delivering optimum performance across all applications.
Key advancements in VMware vSphere 5.1 include more powerful virtual machines (VMs), more innovations to help customers avoid unplanned downtime, and more robust networking capabilities. VMware vSphere 5.1 will support virtual machines with up to 64 virtual CPUs. To keep these VMs running round the clock, VMware has enhanced VMware vMotion to enable live migration of VMs without the need for shared storage.
At the heart of the VMware vCloud Suite is a set of software-defined datacenter services that apply the virtualization principles of abstraction, pooling and automation to the domains of storage, networking, security and availability. VMware vCloud Director orchestrates the provisioning of these services to deliver complete virtual datacenters (VDCs) that can be ready for use in minutes.
VMware vCloud Director 5.1 includes major scalability enhancements, enabling it to support “elastic” VDCs that span multiple VMware vSphere clusters and up to 30,000 virtual machines. vCloud Director 5.1 has enhanced APIs and an extensibility framework that enables customers to connect a broad range of third-party infrastructure services.
“For small and midsize businesses migrating to the cloud, vSphere 5.1 ought to be cause for comfort,” said Adam Stern, CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “This timely and strategic update addresses critical client needs in the areas of storage, networking, security and availability. With the virtual model, stability and scalability are absolutely paramount. VMware’s newest offering delivers both, underscoring the increasingly strong case for cloud migration.”
At the completion of the VMware vSphere 5.1 upgrade cycle, Infinitely Virtual will add support for Windows 2012, Windows 8 and, for the first time, Mac OSX, enabling the Apple community to use Mac servers in a hosted environment.
In a significant breakthrough, VMware vCloud Networking and Security enables the dynamic creation of virtual networks and services that are completely decoupled from the physical network hardware. In addition, VMware vSphere 5.1 incorporates new VMware vSphere Data Protection for simplified, reliable VM back-up and recovery, VMware vSphere Replication for cost-effective disaster protection, and VMware vShield Endpoint for more efficient VM security.
