Address Critical Migration and Mobility Use-cases

Migration

Get cloud adoption that supports a multi-cloud strategy whether you’re building a private cloud on-premises with VMware Cloud Foundation or adopting a public cloud service like VMware Cloud on AWS.

Upgrade, Replatform

Erase technical debt during the migration process by re-platforming apps to current vSphere versions or recapturing workloads from KVM and Hyper-V environments.

Rebalancing

Experience an always-on, high throughput and WAN-optimized hybrid interconnect. Continuously and securely move workloads across cloud regions, cloud providers and on-premises data centers.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Provide an optimized path for business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning. Protect virtual workloads with on-demand, scheduled backup and recovery and large-scale workload migration.
