IT administrators today rely on infrastructure that is dynamically scalable and highly available. A scalable, resilient datacenter is achieved by augmenting or replacing hardware and software, based on the model of one application per server. This model not only results in underutilized resources but also creates hard-to-change boundaries that impair dynamic scalability and availability. VMware, with its partners such as 3PAR, helps make it easier to transform a company's existing datacenter into a scalable and available infrastructure with server virtualization and dynamically tiered storage arrays. VMware vSphere 4 ("vSphere") is the core virtualization platform from VMware that converts multiple servers and storage into a resource pool.
