Product Overview

Many hospitals are managing costs and improving IT efficiency through virtualization.  A virtual server environment enables them to reduce infrastructure costs, lower energy consumption, and speed responsiveness to disaster recovery, among other benefits.

Virtual Server Partners

Our server virtualization application seamlessly provides all the benefits of virtualization while maintaining the same Omnicell system functionality you would seeVMware Virtual Server with a physical server. We have partnered with two virtualization providers to give you flexible options.

VMware—Omnicell is a Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) with VMware, the leading provider of virtualization technology.
