Commensus are a registered VMware Enterprise Partner. VMware is the technology behind our platform and enables us to virtualise our servers. Not only is VMware the world’s leading hypervisor but it also provides us with the enterprise technology that enables us to provide cloud computing solutions to our customers. Other hypervisors don’t compare with VMware so look out for cheaper alternatives that don’t provide the quality and security that VMware hosting brings.
VMware hosting enables us to provide our customers with a secure and resilient architecture. By using this best of breed technology, VMware enables our servers to pool resources, rather than being stored in any one fixed location. This means that any hardware failure is isolated with the data centres and ensures that our customer’s virtual servers remain unaffected.
In simple terms, if a physical server within our data centre were to go down, VMware enables our platform to automatically relocate a customer’s virtual servers onto healthy equipment. The same applies to the SAN storage layer. Should a SAN fail, another one is automatically enabled and data automatically transferred. This ultimately ensures that hardware is fully redundant within the data centre and enables us to provide guaranteed uptime. VMware hosting also enables us to replicate the entire data centre into a separate facility ensuring total flexibility and security at the data centre level.
Customers who host with Commensus benefit from VMware hosting every day, whether they know it or not. By utilising VMware hosting, we know that we can offer the most technologically advanced Cloud Computing solution for our customers.
