Virtualisation solutions provider VMware has launched new technologies that expand its flagship suite of virtual infrastructure into a Virtual Datacentre Operating System (VDC-OS).

The Virtual Datacentre OS will allow businesses in the Middle East to efficiently pool all types of hardware resources – servers, storage and network – into an on-premise cloud and when needed, safely transfer workloads to external clouds for additional compute capacity.

The company claims that datacentres running on the Virtual Datacentre OS are highly elastic, self-managing and self-healing, which means that regional businesses can benefit from the flexibility and the efficiency of the ‘lights-out’ datacentre.

“For the first time at VMware, we are offering an alternative to the traditional OS, which is optimised to operate on a single server and supports only those applications written to its interfaces,” explains VMware’s senior director of product and marketing Reza Malekzadeh.

“The VDC-OS serves as the OS for the entire datacentre and supports any application written to any server in the OS, from legacy Windows applications to modern distributed applications that are designed to operate in multi- system environments.

“This means that Middle Eastern customers can achieve maximum application availability, testable disaster recovery solutions, and better quality of service without any application changes or deploying additional specialised software.”
