Hi, You're watching Veum. Where? The Sphere Lesson three E S, X I and fees under server.
00:08
By the end of this video, you'll understand. Veum Where's products for server visualization? And these include the hyper visor called Tears Excite and the management platform called V. Xander Server.
00:20
Now, with all the basics out of the way, let's now introduce the sphere.
00:24
The Sphere is Veum Ware's flagship product for server virtualization. Think of it as the operating system off the data center. It is not a single product, but rather a collection off products and futures at the core of which we find PM wears hyper visor called years Ex I
00:42
and GM wears management platform called
00:45
Virtual Center or V Center,
00:47
E S X. I stands for elastic sky ex integrated,
00:52
whatever that means.
00:53
The conversion is six, not seven
00:56
years. Xie is by far the most advanced hyper visor in the market, hands down
01:00
several years ahead of the competition. This, of course, is not an exaggeration.
01:06
Yes, exile uses a proprietary operating system, both from scratch by Vienna, where
01:11
it is lightweight within installed footprint off a little over 100 megabytes only.
01:18
What's more, it's free if you intend to use it on a single standard answer,
01:23
which, incidentally, is rarely the case.
01:26
But it's generous nonetheless, when installed. Yes, exile, it's you provisioned new virtual machines in a matter of minutes.
01:34
Yes, Xie is also very easy to work with, especially through a browser based client called the Host Client. It lets you access your tears, Excite, host, create and manage virtual machine hardware, all with a few clicks.
01:48
How cool is that?
01:49
You can create as many virtual machines as your underlying hardware can handle,
01:53
but that's it. The fun ends here.
01:57
If your data center grows standalone, manageability becomes an issue. Suppose you have a dozen service with tens of years each.
02:06
Managing each host individually is not very efficient.
02:09
Hence, it makes sense to have a centralized management layer that gives you data center wide manageability from one interface.
02:19
Here's where the center comes in.
02:21
Free center is another cornerstone. Orpheus fear.
02:24
It simplifies management at scale. It gives you a centralized user interface from which you can control all your yes X I hosts in the data center. You're simply register your your *** I hosts in V Centers inventory and wallah.
02:39
They all appear in one place.
02:42
You can create the EMS clone V EMS, migrate them and much more.
02:46
He's center brings a lot of fun and efficiency, with some advanced features like Peace Feet, High Availability or H A. If, for whatever reason one of your service fails,
02:58
A J will automatically restart the PM's that we're running on the faith host on another host.
03:05
Another interesting feature is V's were distributed resource Scheduler or DRS. This one will automatically try to balance resource consumption across all the Essex I hosts in your data center by migrating V EMS from overworked hosts to relatively idol hosts.
03:23
How cool is that?
03:24
Another future is vey sphere of emotion. Suppose you want to perform some maintenance on one or more of your hosts, but you don't want the viens running on it to shut down.
03:35
You want service? Continue ity. Sophie Motion lets you migrate a powered on virtual machine from one host to another with zero downtime. Impressive, isn't it?
03:46
We will cover all these features in a later model.
03:50
For now, this wraps up our overview off. He's here.
03:53
Here are the important takeaways.
03:55
The sphere is Veum Ware's flagship product for server virtualization. This fear is a combination of two core products that is, yes, exile and fees and a server, plus additional features that are unlocked with the center.
04:09
The latest version to date off East here is 67
04:13
Yes, X, I is VM wears hyper visor
04:15
and V Center is Veum. Where's centralized? Management? Plateful. Thanks for watching, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
