Simplify and Automate IT Management

IT needs to deliver speed and agility to help the business quickly respond to new opportunities to be a strategic partner. However, IT organizations have built their IT operations to promote control and consistency. And application and infrastructure architectures are increasingly heterogeneous and hybrid.

VMware virtualization and cloud management solutions allow you to master the conflicting demands of the mobile-cloud era and deliver speed and agility while maintaining IT control and efficiency.

Managing the Software-Defined Data Center

Delivering business speed and agility while addressing IT needs for uptime, performance, security and compliance with a relentless focus on cost reduction is possible using VMware’s innovative software-defined data center (SDDC) architecture that includes:

  • Compute virtualization, network virtualization and software-defined storage that deliver abstraction, pooling and automation of infrastructure services
  • A flexible mix of private and public cloud infrastructure ( hybrid cloud) that extends your datacenter resources
  • Unified management that enables policy-based automation and control of infrastructure and applications, on- or off-premises
  • Purpose-built virtualization and cloud management solutions use automation to meet the business need for speed and agility. They also provide unified management from applications to storage. And they offer service cost transparency that both business and IT decision makers need for data-driven decisions.

VMware Cloud Management solutions are designed to meet the demands of cloud computing – self-service, scale, velocity of change, shared infrastructures – as well as the modern applications they support. With VMware you can provide self-service access to the right services with the right approvals while ensuring the health, compliance and efficiency of your IT infrastructure and applications across private, public and hybrid clouds.
