VMware Professional Services
VMware is a leader in cloud computing and virtualization software. VMware ESXi is a bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system. VMware’s desktop software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and MacOS.
As a VMware Partner and Authorized Training Reseller, Fast Lane / Directions works with clients to implement a wide array of VMware solutions. Our consultants design, implement, and customize VMware solutions for our customers.
These solutions include installation and configuration for the vSphere product suite, VSAN, vSphere Replication and Disaster Recovery, and VMware HA.
vSphere 7 Product Suite Installation
VMware vSphere leverages the power of virtualization to transform datacenters into simplified cloud computing infrastructures. It enables organization to deliver flexible and reliable IT services. As a cloud operating system, VMware vSphere manages large collections of infrastructure (CPUs, memory, storage, and networking) as a seamless and dynamic environment.
The vSphere 7 product suite provides ESXi for virtualization, vCenter for centralized management (used for technologies like cloning) and vSphere client for connectivity to the ESXi server. It also provides infrastructure services which include vCompute for aggregating resources across discrete servers, vStorage which enables the most efficient use of storage, and vNetwork that simplify and enhance networking in virtual environments.
Building high-end service offerings with VMware products ESXi, vCenter, and vSphere – we ensure that you are taken care from implementation through the support process. We offer comprehensive packages that effectively integrate with your business strategies and virtualization needs.
vSAN 6.7 Installation
vSAN delivers flash-optimized, secure, shared storage for all your critical virtualized workloads. It accelerates the infrastructure modernization for a strategic, cost-effective advantage for your company. By powering the leading Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions, vSAN helps organizations evolve.
Our consulting team offers vSAN installation and integration services according to the needs of your computing environment for minimizing risk, controlling IT costs, and scaling to address tomorrow’s business needs.
vSphere Replication and Disaster Recovery
The vSphere and VMware Site Recovery Manager is a business continuity and disaster recovery solution that helps you to plan, test, and run the recovery on virtual machines between a protected vCenter Server site and a recovery vCenter Server site. Site Recovery Manager protects virtual machines in different ways including datastore groups, individual virtual machines, and storage policies.
You can use Site Recovery Manager to implement different types of recovery for both a planned migration and for disaster recovery. Site Recovery Manager organizes the recovery process with replication mechanisms to minimize potential data loss and system down time.
The Fast Lane / Directions consulting team can support you with the design, integration, and management techniques needed for proper replication and disaster recovery. This includes a recovery plan which specifies the order in which virtual machines start up on the recovery site. It contains specific information such as IP addresses, network parameters, and can contain user-specified scripts to aid in application startup upon recovery.
VMware High Availability
VMware HA provides high availability to virtual machines by pooling them and the hosts they reside on into a cluster. The hosts in the cluster are monitored and in the event of a failure, the virtual machines on a failed host are restarted on alternate hosts.
Our consulting team will configure all hosts in the cluster. One of the primary hosts will be designated as the active primary host and it decides where to restart virtual machines, keeps track of failed restart attempts and determines when it is appropriate to keep trying to restart a virtual machine.
