VMware-ESXi-7.0.1 127

VMware\’s vSphere software is used for very large, high-level tasks such as setting up a cloud and cloud system. But its use is on a smaller scale to set up virtual systems. One advantage of having a car, and in fact a virtual computer, is that you don\’t have to allocate a separate piece of hardware to run different software, each of which requires a separate operating system, thus reducing costs.

Also, by installing vSphere on a server computer, its resources can be managed according to the needs of different virtual systems. A simple example of this is that you need a system with high RAM and low CPU, and next to that you need a system with low RAM and high CPU and hard drive. These two systems can overlap well and be optimally implemented in a powerful hardware.


Features and features of VMware vSphere collection:

This software provides you with services in 7 areas, including calculations, networking, availability, automation, management, security, and storage space, which can be summarized here .

Computation ( Compute ):

– vSphere ESXi to virtualize and share the hardware resources of a server for virtual machines installed inside

– Distributed Resources Scheduler (DRS) to prioritize servers that are supposed to perform a task at different hours of the day, for example, with high load, new systems are automatically turned on and in non-peak hours additional systems to save off power consumption Be.

– vMotion to reduce server downtime by transferring virtual machines between servers

– Big Data Extensions, which increases the reliability, agility and usefulness by running Hadoop.

Network ( Networking ):

– Network I / O Control allows you to prioritize access to network resources based on defined rules.

– Distributed Switch centralizes the supply, management and monitoring of the network with the help of data center network aggregation.

Availability ( Availability ):

– High Availability without the need for an old clustering system provides high availability throughout your IT space.

– App HA definitely identifies and fixes your operating system and software.

– Fault Tolerance will continue if the software server is disconnected and no information is lost.

– Data Protection provides non-proprietary support for Agent in the operating system and saves your backup space with an additional backup method.

– Replication With the help of internal vSphere? feature, you do not need to use other software to replicate information.

Automation ( Automation ):

– Auto Deploy allows you to deploy and update your hosts.

– Host Profiles allows you to create a profile with specific features for hosts so that you can set up several other hosts on it.

– Update Manager prevents RoinTin from updating and patching your hosts, and does so automatically and manually.

Management ( Management ):

– vCenter Server allows centralized management of your servers in one environment.

– vCenter Orchestrator With the help of a drag and drop interface (Drag and Drop) you can create your workflow.

Storage space ( Storage ):

– Storage DRS manages the load created in the storage space of your servers according to the time of their input and output delays and their storage capacity.

– Profile Driven Storage provides a system for defining profiles and grouping storage spaces according to set rules.

– Storage vMotion? Moves your data without spoiling in the cloud and empties more storage space.

– Storage I / O Control prioritizes access to storage spaces based on the load on them and provides the best mode for virtual machines.

– VMFS with the help of an advanced file system and high speed, easy to manage and supply virtual machines


– Storage Thin Provisioning increases the usefulness of virtual machine storage space with proper management and dynamic allocation and intelligent supply of physical storage space.

– Storage APIs with the help of APIs improve the knowledge of storage space, data protection and integration of arrays and allow you to test the multitasking capabilities with the manufacturer of storage spaces of the company.

– Flash Read Cache minimizes software latency by using a server-based caching layer.

ESXi Hardware Requirements


Make sure the host meets the minimum hardware configurations supported by ESXi 5.5.


Hardware and System Resources

AnchorTo install and use ESXi 5.5, your hardware and system resources must meet the following requirements:



AnchorAnchorSupported server platform. For a list of supported platforms, see theAnchorVMware Compatibility Guide at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility.


AnchorAnchorESXi 5.5 will install and run only on servers with 64-bit x86 CPUs.


AnchorAnchorESXi 5.5 requires a host machine with at least two cores.


AnchorAnchorESXi 5.5 supports only LAHF and SAHF CPU instructions.


AnchorAnchorESXi 5.5 requires the NX / XD bit to be enabled for the CPU in the BIOS.


AnchorAnchorESXi supports a broad range of x64 multicore processors. For a complete list of supported processors, see the VMware compatibility guide at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility.


AnchorAnchorESXi requires a minimum of 4GB of physical RAM. Provides at least 8GB of RAM to take full advantage of ESXi features and run virtual machines in typical production environments.


AnchorAnchorTo support 64-bit virtual machines, support for hardware virtualization (Intel VT-x or AMD RVI) must be enabled on x64 CPUs.


AnchorAnchorOne or more Gigabit or 10Gb Ethernet controllers. For a list of supported network adapter models, see theAnchorVMware Compatibility Guide at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility.


AnchorAnchorAny combination of one or more of the following controllers:



AnchorAnchorBasic SCSI controllers. Adaptec Ultra-160 or Ultra-320, LSI Logic Fusion-MPT, or most NCR / Symbios SCSI.


AnchorAnchorRAID controllers. Dell PERC (Adaptec RAID or LSI MegaRAID), HP Smart Array RAID, or IBM (Adaptec) ServeRAID controllers.


AnchorAnchorSCSI disk or a local, non-network, RAID LUN with unpartitioned space for virtual machines.


AnchorAnchorFor Serial ATA (SATA), a disk connected through supported SAS controllers or supported on-board SATA controllers. SATA disks will be considered remote, not local. These disks will not be used as a scratch partition by default because they are seen as remote.



AnchorYou cannot connect a SATA CD-ROM device to a virtual machine on an ESXi 5.5 host. To use the SATA CD-ROM device, you must use ID
