VMware has launched VMware vSphere + and VMware vSAN + to help organizations bring cloud benefits to their existing infrastructure without interfering with their workload and hosts.
Presented at VMworld 2021 as a preview of a technology called the Arctic Project, these new proposals will help customers improve their infrastructure through centralized cloud-based infrastructure management, integrated Kubernetes, access to new hybrid cloud services, and flexible subscription models.
Krish Prasad, Senior Vice President and General Manager, VMware Cloud Platform Business Group, VMware Cloud Platform Business Group, said: “VMware vSphere + and VMware vSAN + are the next major evolution of these core solutions that customers know and trust.
“As users go on a digital conversion journey anywhere and implement a cloud strategy, vSphere + and vSAN + will help accelerate change by bringing the benefits of the cloud to existing internal infrastructure and workloads, along with simplified applications through a flexible subscription model. ”
VMware vSphere + and VMware vSAN + are an integral part of the VMware Cloud strategy to deliver a robust infrastructure with value-added capabilities in a distributed environment. vSphere + and vSAN + allow clients to enable additional cloud services for on-site business applications such as disaster protection and ransomware protection. Users of all sizes will be able to take advantage of new features, security, and product updates more quickly, greatly simplifying operations without modifying existing applications and hardware.
Gary Chen, Director of Research at IDC and Gary Chen, Director of Research at Software Defined Computing, said, “Changing the infrastructure of the building with cloud services is a modern trend that is being updated by IDC.” “By enabling the ubiquitous data center hypervisor in the cloud service, users will be able to use innovative capabilities that can be directly and fully managed from the cloud to increase management efficiency, expand Cubernetes operations, and address a wide range of pain issues such as DR. . The future capabilities of this delivery model, such as vSphere + and vSAN +, are limitless and can be a key tool for businesses to quickly upgrade existing infrastructure with minimal load. ”
Under the pressure to increase efficiency and productivity, infrastructure operations teams are growing and looking for more effective ways to maintain and protect infrastructure to support a more complex environment. In most cases, the client’s vSphere environment spreads to closed locations, peripheral areas, and the cloud, leading to operational complexity and inefficient maintenance.
vSphere + and vSAN + provide an integrated infrastructure management experience in these distributed environments via the VMware Cloud Console. The console has world-class inventory, configuration, warning, management and security status for on-site hosting. Admins will be able to perform certain operational tasks directly from the VMware Cloud Console, such as managing settings and policies in their deployment. In addition, customers will benefit from a greatly simplified life cycle management experience through cloud-enabled automation of internal infrastructure component upgrades. Users will also gain access to cloud-based maintenance and configuration transitions, including security checks to comply with corporate and regulatory requirements.
Development teams focus on updating software and infrastructure to bring better software into production faster. By providing a single workload platform for running VMs and containers hosted by Kubernetes, vSphere + can help transform ground infrastructure into an enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform. This includes giving developers a multi-cloud IaaS application experience by expanding the capabilities of the VMware Tanzu Standard Runtime, allowing developers to run and manage Kubernetes in a sustainable and efficient way on the ground, in the public cloud and in the marketplace. With the introduction of VMware Tanzu Mission Control Essentials, users will be able to see Cubernets traces around the world and automate operational tasks.
Modern organizations require an integrated, extended cloud service to constantly increase their security position, recover quickly from disasters and site disruptions, and better protect against ransomware. With vSphere + and vSAN +, users will be able to take advantage of the expanded capabilities of the VMware Cloud and continue to use existing investments such as tools and domain experiences. Customers will benefit from a security workflow that can be used as an additional cloud service integrated directly into their operating environment, such as VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery, custom ransomware and disaster recovery services. A new additional cloud service is being developed that will provide an easy way to reach the cloud if users choose to migrate in the future.
