VMware Technical Assessments

In 2019, it is clear that all organizations, whether big or small, are on cloud journey. Within this overarching journey, customers are pursuing two distinct strategies for adopting the cloud: a Hybrid Cloud strategy and a native Public Cloud strategy. Customers public cloud strategies overwhelmingly involve the use of multiple public clouds so public cloud strategies are evolving into Multi-Cloud Operations strategies that may also include the hybrid cloud as a subset of all the clouds in use within an organization.


Hybrid cloud adoption is primarily driven by IT-Operations teams who have established a proven model for infrastructure within the data center and are looking to extend that model to the public cloud. Multi cloud / public cloud is driven by a range of consumers of cloud services - from developers and LOB owners to dedicated cloud operations teams aligned to the CIO. These groups are looking to take advantage of the agility and innovation that public clouds support.


VMware Cloud solutions are focused on meeting the needs of these three distinct audiences.


VMware addresses the specific needs of teams in each of these three areas by focusing on five core use cases:

1. Cloud Migration

2. Scale on Demand

3. Multi-Cloud Operations

4. Modern Applications

5. Modernize Data Centers
