Only VMware offers a comprehensive family of technology solutions for private and public cloud. VMware helps customers get ready to adopt public clouds by implementing a fully virtualized, software-defined modernized infrastructure that can extend across private- and public-cloud environments.
Customers should first upgrade to vSphere 6.5 to get ready for moving applications to compatible cloud service providers, and continue toward a software-defined environment with virtualization across compute (vSphere), storage (VMware vSAN™), and networking (VMware NSX®), and enhance this environment with unified management (VMware vRealize® Suite). With a modern infrastructure, customers can choose the best placement of workloads and move applications to public clouds while managing across public and private clouds with common enterprise management, security, and policies. Customers can preserve investments in VMware technologies, tools, and knowledge while gaining cloud freedom and control.
vSAN: industry-leading software for hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI).
Virtualising your storage environment is a core building block for the software defined data centre. If you’re looking for a quick and affordable way to establish a storage platform for virtual machines, vSAN is the solution for you. Formerly known as Virtual SAN, vSAN by VMware lets you easily virtualise your existing VMware environment. So you can keep using your preferred software provider for data backup, file services and much more.
Seamless integration into vSphere features eases you into the world of HCI. The solution can be expanded at any time with other VMware SDDC and multi-cloud offers. vSAN is the only HCI solution that enhances modern SAN and NAS storage systems with VM-centric policies and automated deployment.
For the dynamic multi-cloud models of the future.
vSAN lets you scale your storage resources exactly in line with your requirements, along with faster deployment and simplified administration – with your existing tools and team. Smart analysis features, enhanced monitoring and automation on a VM basis simplifies trouble shooting and performance adjustment. With vSAN, your infrastructure can best respond to your business critical applications in addition to the container based applications of tomorrow—and the dynamic multi-cloud models of the future.
