All Cloud Computing Platforms are Not Equal

Cloud computing offers undisputed benefits in terms of agility and cost-effectiveness. But cloud computing platforms are not commodities, with one easily substituted for another. Chances are that some of your workloads can only run on-premises and some can only run in specific proprietary clouds. Once you move a workload to a proprietary cloud, it typically requires rewriting and/or reconfigurations to move back onsite.

Luckily you don’t need to re-architect for different public cloud infrastructures. VMware cloud computing services let you run both new and legacy applications in the cloud. You get the best of both worlds: leverage your existing investments while still gaining the agility and cost-effectiveness of a public cloud.

Cloud Technology for New and Legacy Applications

If your existing infrastructure is built on VMware vSphere, used by more than 80% of businesses worldwide, you can take advantage of a true hybrid cloud solution and extend your data center to the cloud quickly, easily and confidently. Because VMware vCloud Air is built on vSphere, your onsite and offsite IT environments can be connected and integrated, running existing and new applications in exactly the same way. You can get the same performance, security and compliance as you do from your current VMware infrastructure with the same agility, automation and standardization available in the cloud.

Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds

The software-defined data center (SDDC) gives you the basis for building a private, public or hybrid cloud for delivering IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS). The SDDC architecture gives you a common management, orchestration, networking and security model across on-premises and off-premises environments.

  • Build a vSphere-based private cloud on premises with vCloud Suite.
  • Extend your vSphere-based data center to a public cloud with VMware vCloud Air or through our extensive ecosystem of vCloud Air Network service providers worldwide.
  • Manage physical, virtual and hybrid cloud with a management solution built for heterogeneous, hybrid cloud with vRealize Suite.

Unified Management Platform

Policy-driven automation and management in a single unified management platform lets you centrally manage and monitor applications and workloads across heterogeneous infrastructure and hybrid clouds. vRealize Suite lets you increase business speed and agility while maintaining IT control and cost efficiency.
