Key Questions About Multi-Cloud Operations 

What is hybrid cloud vs. multi-cloud operations?

Hybrid cloud operations focus on consistent management of a common infrastructure layer based on technology deployed across clouds. Multi-cloud operations involve consistent management of two or more clouds that don’t have consistent infrastructure. 

What are the biggest challenges organizations face as they start to use public clouds?

Management across a multi-cloud environment can be a challenge for organizations, as well as increased costs and protecting workloads. Improving operational governance and automating core processes are also high priorities to solve.


Can VMware help manage operations when I have applications deployed natively on AWS or Azure?

Yes. VMware multi-cloud solutions are designed to help manage workloads that run on the native infrastructure of public clouds like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. They can also help manage a hybrid or multi-cloud scenario that includes consistent infrastructure based on VMware technologies, running alongside natively deployed workloads in the cloud.
