VMware has moved to simplify pricing and consumption models with the release of new VMware Cloud services.
VMware Cloud is a distributed, multi-cloud platform that enables organizations to accelerate application modernization across the data centre, edge and any cloud. It aims to provide advantages to both developers and IT operators, boosting developer productivity by enabling them to build and deploy to any cloud. Under the umbrella of VMware Cloud, three new services are now being offered:
- VMware Cloud Universal: a flexible subscription that simplifies the purchase and consumption of VMware multi-cloud infrastructure and management services
- VMware Cloud Console: a single monitoring and management environment for VMware Cloud infrastructure regardless of where it’s deployed
- VMware App Navigator: a new offering for assessing and prioritizing app transformation initiatives across an entire application estate based on the value of each app.
“We are on the cusp of the next evolution of cloud and apps,” said Raghu Raghuram, chief operating officer, products and cloud services, VMware. “Architectures are becoming distributed and increasingly multi-cloud, while modern applications will soon outnumber traditional apps. The challenge for any CIO is to take advantage of this new innovation without introducing more complexity and risk. VMware Cloud is the only cloud solution today that customers can use in the data center and on any cloud, accelerating their modernization journey with speed, simplicity, and better security. With VMware Cloud Universal, customers make a single purchase and gain the ability to deploy apps across any environment, then move them as business or application requirements change.”
