VMWare Ready Servers

Product Overview

Unity Enterprise Platform

Many hospitals are managing costs and improving IT efficiency through virtualization. By replacing the "one server, one application" model with a virtual server environment, they are able to reduce infrastructure costs, lower energy consumption, and speed responsiveness to disaster recovery, among other benefits.

Keeping pace with this trend, Omnicell is a Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) with VMware, the leading provider of virtualization technology. Our OmniCenter®, OptiFlex™, Pandora® and WorkflowRx™ server platforms are certified as VMware Ready, assuring you that these systems have passed specific VMware integration and interoperability criteria.

Our VMware server virtualization application seamlessly provides all the benefits of virtualization while maintaining the same functionality of your Omnicell pharmacy, medication and supply dispensing systems.

Of course, we continue to support physical server environments as well. The flexibility to meet a range of customer needs has helped make Omnicell a preferred partner for medication and supply dispensing automation.
