Product Information

Full Description


VMware vCenter Server provides a scalable and extensible platform for proactive virtualization management, delivering deep visibility into virtual infrastructure. VMware vCenter Server centrally manages vSphere environments and simplifies daily tasks, dramatically improving administrative control over the environment.

  • Centralized management
  • Secure access control
  • Higher levels of security
  • Automated energy efficiency
  • Real-time monitoring of dynamic virtual elements
  • Customizable alarm triggers
  • Simplified navigation and inventory search
  • Rapid provisioning and simplified patch management
  • Dynamic resource allocation to ensure SLAs
  • Workflow automation
  • VCenter Server availability
  • Open architecture
  • Centralized management
    vCenter Server allows IT organizations to organize, rapidly provision and configure the entire IT environment through a single interface, resulting in lower operating costs. Thorough and consistent performance monitoring of all critical components - including CPU, memory, storage and networking - provide the detail administrators need.
  • Secure access control
    Robust permission mechanisms and integration with Microsoft Active Directory guarantee authorized access to an environment and its virtual machines. Responsibilities can be delegated to tiers of system administrators.
  • Higher levels of security
    Enforce compliance with patch standards automatically through VMware vCenter Update Manager, allowing organizations to protect their virtual infrastructure from vulnerabilities.
  • Automated energy efficiency
    Enterprises can minimize power consumption with VMware Distributed Power Management, which enables a "green" data center.
  • Real-time monitoring of dynamic virtual elements
    vCenter Server has deep awareness of all virtual elements and related physical components, including server hardware, shared storage and networking, with event and alarm triggers that make it easier to monitor the environment, diagnose and troubleshoot issues. Administrators can visualize the relationships between physical servers, virtual machines, networks and storage with dynamic topology maps that verify correct configuration of vSphere. vCenter Server monitors performance and availability of virtual machines and other virtual elements, such as resource pools with detailed statistics and graphs that can be viewed in real time.
  • Customizable alarm triggers
    vCenter Server can generate automated notifications and alerts, and can trigger automated workflows to remedy and pre-empt problems.
  • Simplified navigation and inventory search
    Use a global search function to access the entire inventory of multiple vCenter Servers, including virtual machines, hosts, data stores and networks, anywhere from within vCenter. An improved user interface allows for easier navigation.
  • Rapid provisioning and simplified patch management
    Create new virtual machines or hosts in minutes using a wizard or template to minimize errors and downtime with configuration standards. Easily patch virtual machines and hosts using vCenter Update Manager, and standardize and validate host configuration using the host profiles feature.
  • Dynamic resource allocation to ensure SLAs
    vCenter Server continuously monitors utilization across resource pools with VMware DRS, which intelligently migrates virtual machines across hosts without causing downtime or affecting service-level agreements (SLAs). The result is a self-managing, highly optimized and efficient IT environment with built-in load balancing. When excess capacity is not needed by virtual machines in a resource pool, VMware Distributed Power Management (DPM) places hosts in standby to reduce power consumption without affecting SLAs.
  • Workflow automation
    vCenter Server includes vCenter Orchestrator, a powerful orchestration engine that simplifies management by enabling administrators to automate over 800 tasks using out-of-the-box workflows or by assembling workflows using an easy drag-and-drop interface.
  • vCenter Server availability
    A service management console displays the health of the vCenter components, allowing administrators to quickly identify and correct problems in the management infrastructure. VMware vCenter Server Heartbeat, provides additional availability with deep awareness of all vCenter Server components, failing over the management server and database over the LAN or WAN to a standby server.
  • Open architecture
    The vCenter APIs and a .NET Extension allow integration between vCenter Server and other tools, and support customized plug-ins to the vSphere Client, protecting your investments and giving you freedom of choice in how you manage your environment.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.

King of Servers is an ISO 9001 certified company committed to supplying products and services that consistently meet our customers' requirements and expectations. We are a Feefo Commended Merchant thanks to our consistently high customer service scores gathered independently from genuine purchase verified customers. We build long standing relationships with organisations of all types and sizes; take a look at our case studies for examples of projects we've worked on in both the private and public sector.
