The Business Value of Hybrid Cloud with VMware

Published by: VMware

A key first step in any organization's efforts to transform its business is the move to a modernized cloud-based IT infrastructure. Cloud, however, is not about a specific datacenter or a specific cloud IaaS environment. Cloud is about the timely and effective delivery of new applications and enhancement of existing applications in internal datacenters and in a growing range of shared public cloud facilities. Easy application migration and ongoing optimization of applications and data are critical.
IDC spoke with organizations that have deployed enterprise applications in a VMware Hybrid Cloud environment to understand the impact on their IT and business operations. These VMware customers described achieving value from both the ease and security of migrating applications and from establishment of more consistent, cost-effective, and robust IT infrastructure across public cloud IaaS and on-premise cloud environments.
Like many organizations, these VMware customers considered obstacles related to cost, time, and security when deciding where to place and whether to move workloads across dedicated private and/or shared public cloud environments. With the adoption of a consistent VMware Hybrid Cloud environment, they reported that migrating applications is substantially easier and less costly than carrying out a comparable migration with either a customized private cloud or a public cloud environment.
