In a world that’s rapidly being re-shaped by technology, the most successful business and IT leaders are acting bravely and decisively to create change rather than wait for it. Today, VMware announces exciting new additions to its portfolio—from managing your software-defined data center in the hybrid cloud more effectively to delivering a secure virtual workspace— that make IT more nimble and automated, empowering you to deliver the apps that drive revenue and differentiation faster and more reliably than ever.
Realize the Potential of Comprehensive Software-Defined Data Center Management
The Software-Defined Data Center is going mainstream. And hybrid. Companies that virtualize compute, network and storage can gain even more power and flexibility when they extend their data center with public cloud services.
VMware’s cloud management solutions are optimized for VMware vSphere® and also offer a unified management experience across physical systems, other hypervisor platforms, and public cloud services such as VMware vCloud® Air™ (formerly vCloud® Hybrid Service™), Amazon Web Services, or those based on OpenStack. VMware cloud management solutions can deliver the speed and agility the business needs, and the control and efficiency IT demands.
The latest VMware management product updates bring all management products under a single family name—VMware vRealize™—as the next step in our management product evolution, offering a breadth of solutions that only VMware can deliver.
