In searching for a cloud environment that meets the needs across your application portfolio, the stark truth is a single cloud won't suffice. Yet moving to a multi-cloud solution can result in an uptick in resource costs and a downturn in organizational efficiency.
VMware can help you better understand the complexities of dealing with unique cloud-based architectures, each with their own rules and requirements.
We can help you tackle the design challenges in cloud architecture, too—so you can stay competitive, use the tools and skills you already have, easily migrate applications without code changes, and meet your business needs on schedule.
To successfully modernize your applications, first consider what capabilities you require from your multi-cloud environment.
To help inspire your thought process, here's some examples of what VMware has heard from a survey of over 1,200 application development and IT operations professionals on their optimal cloud environment—and what it should allow them to do:
Whether or not any of these are essentials on your own list, VMware can help you close the gap from imagining your ideal cloud environment architecture to realizing it.
As an architect, you play a key role in helping your organization navigate application modernization across multi-cloud environments. To increase agility while minimizing costs and risk, keep in mind these five principles for your cloud-based architecture.
Architect an environment that increases business agility by allowing each application to be deployed to the cloud that best meets its requirements.
Architect an environment that lowers costs by supporting the ability to move applications between environments without refactoring.
Architect an environment that reduces complexity and improves security through the use of a unified operating model.
Architect an environment that minimizes learning curves by providing high levels of skill leverage for both developers and IT operators.
Architect an environment that supports the ability to scale up automation across the full scope of operations.
VMware provides a unified approach to building, running, and managing traditional and modern applications on any cloud. A single platform functions across all application types and multiple cloud environments, so you can migrate and run applications seamlessly.
Create your application modernization and multi-cloud strategy with VMware technologies that support cloud operations across a multi-cloud landscape, including both hybrid cloud and public cloud native architectures. Architect the multi-cloud environment that best matches your applications, with the flexibility to build, deploy, and manage from the data center to the cloud to the edge.
