Extend Your Data Center to the Cloud
Because businesses need to respond more quickly to their internal and external customers as well as their competition, the agility and cost-effectiveness of moving applications to the cloud is an increasingly appealing option.
In a hybrid cloud, onsite and offsite IT environments are not just connected and integrated with common management. They're also designed to run existing and new applications in exactly the same way. With a hybrid cloud, businesses can leverage a common management, orchestration, networking and security model both on premises and off premises. As a result, enterprises are reaping the benefits of public cloud without changing applications or operations.
With infrastructure-as-a-service hybrid cloud from VMware and VMware vCloud® Service Provider partners, you can deploy applications to the best location for that particular application's security, performance and availability needs, and you can move the application seamlessly between your on-premises and off-premises environments.
The Advantages of Hybrid Cloud
When you choose cloud services from VMware or VMware vCloud Service Provider partners, you don't have to worry about application compatibility or service provider lock-in often associated with other cloud services. This helps you reduce both risks and costs without requiring additional management tools and infrastructure, reinventing your processes or retraining your existing workforce.
- Write, deploy and manage applications in the cloud the same way you do today, relying on the underlying platform to provide the same level of security, reliability and performance you get from your current VMware infrastructure.
- Administer the entire hybrid infrastructure—data centers and public cloud together—with a "single pane of glass" management framework. Use the same tools, processes and skills you already have.
- Seamless interoperability gives you the freedom to quickly deploy workloads to the cloud with the flexibility to move them between your on-premises and off-premises environments as your requirements change.
