VMware ECS

VMware ECS

What Is VMware ECS?

A VMware Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) is a scalable computing server provided by VMware vCenter. By interconnecting VMware Service with VMware vCenter, VMware ECSs can be centrally managed on ManageOne.


VMware ECS has the following advantages:

  • VMware ECSs are more cost-effective than traditional servers.
  • VMware ECSs help users better manage computing resources.

Application Scenarios

ECSs provided by VMware Service ECS are virtual computing facilities that can be scaled up or down based on your requirements. You can rent computing and storage resources based on your needs at a low cost. Therefore, your hardware cost is reduced. The unified management platform is provided to reduce maintenance and management difficulties. You only need to focus on services, as shown in Figure 37-2.

  • Applications

    Web servers, R&D and testing environments for developers, and small-scale databases

  • Characteristics

    General-purpose ECSs are suitable for applications that have no special requirements on vCPU performance, memory, disk capacity, or bandwidth, but have high requirements on security and reliability. They feature low initial investment and maintenance costs.

  • Application scenarios

    Enterprise website deployment, enterprise office environment setup, and enterprise R&D and testing activities

Related Services

Figure 37-5 shows services related to VMware ECS.

  • VMware Service EVS

    VMware EVS disks can be attached to VMware ECSs and capacities of VMware EVS disks can be expanded at any time.

  • VMware Service IMS

    You can create VMware ECSs using images to improve the VMware ECS deployment efficiency.

  • VMware Service Snapshot

    VMware Snapshot allows you to back up VMware ECSs and use the backup data to restore the VMware ECSs. This avoids irreversible loss caused by misoperations.

Accessing and Using VMware ECS

FusionCloud provides a web-based service management platform. Specifically, users can access the service using the ManageOne operation plane or API.

  • ManageOne operation plane

    Users can use the ManageOne operation plane to access the cloud service. If you are a VDC administrator, VDC operator, or have the operation rights of the cloud service, you can directly log in to the ManageOne operation plane and choose this cloud service under the Product List or Console menu.

  • API

    To integrate the cloud service into a third-party system for secondary development, use the corresponding API to access this service. For details, see the FusionCloud 6.3.0 API Reference.
