VMWare Updates Cloud Management And Unified Hybrid Cloud
VMware announced major updates to its hybrid cloud management platform in the form of VMware vRealize Automation 7 and VMware vRealize Business Standard 7 to further empower IT teams to enable digital business transformation within their organizations. These new product releases, in combination with the delivery of VMware vRealize Operations 6.1 and VMware vRealize Log Insight 3 in Q3 2015, represent a complete refresh of VMware’s industry-leading hybrid cloud management platform.
Software is transforming every industry as businesses differentiate themselves and compete more effectively with the help of applications and services that deliver innovative customer experiences. This digital business transformation presents an opportunity for CIOs and IT teams to help their organizations become more agile, to build and deliver both traditional and cloud-native applications more rapidly, and drive down costs without sacrificing governance. Today’s updates to VMware’s cloud management platform will further enable IT teams to accelerate digital business transformation initiatives through new and improved capabilities for delivering applications into production more rapidly along with increased transparency and control over the costs and quality of IT services across the hybrid cloud.
“IT is under constant pressure to help get applications into production faster, and to drive down costs without sacrificing governance,” said Ajay Singh, senior vice president and general manager, Management Suite Business Unit, VMware. “VMware’s hybrid cloud management platform is uniquely positioned to help IT organizations navigate the choppy waters of the digital business transformation. Today’s updates will further help IT to deliver service agility across the public and private cloud while achieving service cost benefits. Our cloud management platform advancements in the second half of 2015 are another big step toward delivering on our vision of a next-generation, platform that is application-aware and self-optimizing.”
VMware’s cloud management platform combines the capabilities of its cloud automation, cloud operations and cloud business management solutions into a single integrated solution. It delivers a comprehensive management stack for the software-defined data center that enables IT to deliver unified services at the speed of business, but with the control and cost efficiency that IT requires. The integration between the platform and VMware infrastructure and services helps customers to more easily adopt a software-defined data center architecture.
