Running on VMware vSphere, your applications are Cloud-ready
Public cloud IT infrastructure, such as that provided by a hosting or service provider, expands a software provider’s capacity to deliver applications, on demand infrastructure, or software as a service (SaaS).
Today, CIOs of most major businesses are being pressured to provide more cloudlike IT and to develop strategies for moving more of their applications and IT infrastructure to the cloud. VMware’s customer-proven virtualization solutions and vSphere 4 uniquely accelerate a company’s transition to private cloud infrastructure while preserving existing investments. For public clouds, VMware provides three distinct advantages that serve both customers and ISVs:
- Choice-VMware has partnered with thousands of hosting and cloud computing vendors to enable delivery on a common virtualization platform. This gives customers’ choice in deploying applications in either a private or public cloud, allowing easy transitions between providers. The VMware cloud platform also provides customers the same broad choice of available hardware, operating system, and other application stack services, whether they’re running applications in a private or public cloud.
- Reliable Technology-Leveraging key technology advancements found in VMware vSphere, customers get the assurance that applications can be managed, moved and operated in the cloud, the same way they are onsite.
- Application Compatibility-The applications that run in customer datacenters today will work the same in a VMware public cloud, and do not require any rewrites or special optimization.
ISVs can differentiate themselves and gain more sales from customers who are making the move to cloud computing. Simply validate that your application runs well on vSphere – we have some useful tools to help with the process – and provide an explicit support statement for your application running on vSphere.
