Hybrid Cloud

Virtualization has dramatically reduced IT costs while greatly improving efficiency. Now business groups demand rapid access to IT resources to support increased agility and faster time-to-market for projects. IT is challenged to meet these requirements while ensuring that the IT environment is fully managed and secured.

Today's IT departments find themselves squeezed between escalating demands and shrinking budgets that can limit their response to the needs of the business. When frustrated users go around IT to meet their requirements, security risks and platform chaos can be the result.

VMware provides multiple options for an easy, safe and affordable way to deliver and scale IT to meet the evolving demands of growing businesses.

Meet the Demands of Your Business

VMware cloud solutions offer choice of flexible cloud deployment models to improve IT efficiency, agility and reliability, while helping IT drive innovation. VMware delivers everything IT needs to build, operate, rent and manage their cloud, even beyond the data center, while continuously quantifying its impact.

VMware vCloud Suite

VMware vCloud® Suite is an on-ramp to building a private cloud infrastructure solution based on software-defined data center architecture that simplifies IT operations while delivering the best SLAs for all applications. vCloud Suite helps IT teams build and deliver a private cloud to realize the agility, efficiency and intelligent operations management of cloud computing in their own IT environment.

VMware Cloud Services

VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™ is a secure infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud owned and operated by VMware, built on the trusted foundation of VMware vSphere®. The service supports existing workloads and new application development, providing a common platform for seamlessly extending existing data centers to the cloud by leveraging the same tools and processes you use today.

VMware Partner Cloud Services

Additionally, cloud services are available from our vCloud Service Providers - the world’s largest ecosystem of cloud computing partners. Built on vSphere, for seamless interoperability with your internal VMware-virtualized data center, these solutions allow you to manage your on-premises and external resources from a single platform, and readily move workloads between the two environments as needed.

Only with VMware

  • No application rewrites
    Your existing vSphere virtual machines can move seamlessly between your data center and external cloud services – without application recoding or modification.
  • Instant agility
    Scale your infrastructure up and down as needed, with the ease of extending to public cloud, paying as you go or by guaranteed subscription. You avoid both vendor lock-in and capital investment in standby hardware that mostly sits idle.
  • Capacity without complexity
    Gain additional capacity and use the same tools and processes you use today to manage both on-premises and off-premises environments, reducing complexity and eliminating the need to retrain your IT staff.
