“The Matrix” trilogy was a box office success during in the early 2,000s. It introduced the concept to moviegoers of a virtual world existing inside of a real world. Ironically, the virtual world looked a whole lot like modern society, while the real world was all sci fi and dystopian—filled with killer drones operated by an AI that sucked the life out of humans. Seriously, if that whole storyline made sense to you, then you’ll understand the big idea behind VMware and virtual machines... minus the sucking-life-out-of-humans part.
In like manner, think of VMware as “virtual machine software” that runs on a real computer or device. It allows that computer to function like a separate computer with a separate operating system. It’s a virtual computer inside a real computer... Hello Morpheus. You found Neo!
You might take advantage of VMware if any of these challenges face your business.
- As a medium to large sized business, you want to reduce costs and/or scale operations.
- You need to offer your employees the ability to work from any location, at any time, and on any device utilizing any operating system.
- There is a desire to increase the uptime and security of your network.
- You need continuous delivery, i.e., the ability to make changes across your entire technology platform and place them into production quickly and without glitches. These changes may include:
- Software updates
- Configuration changes
- Bug fixes
- New or experimental programs
- Disaster recovery scenarios, e.g.: when the notorious hacker, Agent Smith, arrives on the scene.
When VMware is installed on a computer or device, it can access multi-cloud instances of all your business software. If you’d like to hear more, then follow the white rabbit and give us call. Red pill? Blue pill? Nope!
