VergeOS – The VMware Alternative

Have Recent Changes With VMware Made Your Life Easier or Saved You Money?

VMware was a major disruptor when it introduced its server virtualization technology in the early 2000's. The ability to better utilize server hardware by hosting multiple virtual servers on a single physical server dramatically improved datacenter operation metrics.

In the last 20+ years, VMware has done a great job of adding functionality to reach beyond virtualizing servers to include vSAN, NSX, and more. Many VMware engineers are very loyal to the overall platform, and that is understandable.

With some of the recent changes to licensing programs at VMware, many IT leaders may not have that same level of loyalty.

Are you stuck with VMware?

But are you "stuck" with VMware because you've been using it so long and it's so pervasive within your IT environment? The transition to something more modern, more flexible, more economical, and more performant may be way easier than you could have ever imagined!

VergeIO is a major disruptor in the Virtual Data Center space in 2024! Based on their "ultra-converged infrastructure" which leverages a single code source to manage server virtualization, storage virtualization, and networking virtualization, the capabilities of VergeOS go far beyond what VMware offers today, while maintaining a very high degree of compatibility with both VMware and Nutanix AHD.

VergeOS Compatibility

When VMware engineers first start kicking the tires on VergeOS, they typically become very proficient and comfortable with the admin console within a couple of hours.

VergeOS Affordability

When IT leadership understands the VergeOS licensing model (per node, no matter how many sockets, cores, RAM, or storage) they get interested to see if their engineers can deliver the same (or better) functionality currently within their VMware environment.

VergeOS Use Case Videos

There are dozens of use cases that come into play with VMware. We've curated a number of video overviews on this page that will highlight some of the most prominent early successes, but this is just scratching the surface.
