The enhanced performance that results from the DevOps approach has been proven to have a big impact on the overall performance of the business, with faster, more reliable software delivery, consequent cost savings, and faster time to value. Now that cloud is an integral element of the enterprise, automation of cloud management is key, and feeds into the DevOps approach. VMware offers your IT organization the opportunity to become DevOps-ready, using the GUI and API-led approach to enable an automated self-service infrastructure.
To meet the challenges of managing such a complex environment, IT teams need an enterprise-ready cloud management platform that can support multivendor environments, automate application and service delivery, and facilitate operations and governance. VMware provides an enterprise-ready cloud management platform that delivers the industry’s most complete solution for managing a heterogeneous, hybrid cloud, and supports cloud management requirements across Day 1 and Day 2 operations for compute, storage, network and application level resources. The VMware solution is in use today across a wide range of industries and use cases, delivering benefits such as faster provisioning, optimized IT operations, and lower capital spending.

Organizations that automate their highly-virtualized infrastructure environments discover that they are able to introduce new forms of self-service and on-demand IT delivery models. As a result, they’re far better positioned to compete in a world where the quality and performance of applications increasingly dictates success and failure.
On the journey to agility, the ultimate destination remains infrastructure defined by software and operating in a way that’s both application-aware and self-healing. For enterprises competing in the digital economy, deploying a CMP to manage increasingly complex infrastructure has become an indispensable part of that journey.

How do you replicate the speed and flexibility of the public cloud within your own IT team? This white paper will show you how automation can help to accelerate IT service delivery and improve time to market.
With digital transformation accelerating
across every industry, practically every
modern business initiative has become
an IT project, and IT is now more crucial
to the success of the business than ever
before. Businesses must bring innovative products and services to market faster than their competitors, which, in turn, means that IT must rapidly and continuously deliver applications and services that drive productivity and efficiency.
In an environment of digital disruption, IT is looking beyond productivity and cost savings. It’s time to become more strategic. Download this eBook to learn how to leverage technology for business growth and get your products to market faster.
As the world undergoes rapid digital transformation, shield yourself from the risks of having multiple cloud deployments. This eBook will show you how to simplify operational complexity with a hybrid cloud strategy – combining private and public clouds under a single operational model.
In the modern digital age, traditional
barriers to entry and time to market have
fallen. Agile businesses can turn an idea into
an app, host it in the cloud, and quickly deliver
it to millions of customers on their chosen
devices and platforms. In comparison,
many larger enterprises miss new business
opportunities because they’re mired in
managing complex, legacy infrastructure,
inefficient cross-functional workflow and
approval processes, and lengthy audit
and compliance requirements.
It’s no secret financial services organizations own and operate legacy solutions. Some of these
core processes are front and center, meeting customer needs; others are in the middle, supporting
account handling operations; and still many more are in the back-office, handling data and managing
analytics. The challenge for financial leaders is to ensure these traditional systems don’t prevent
the delivery of great digital experiences now and into the future.

VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery introduces native cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities for VMware vSphere® virtual environments. Built on VMware’s hypervisor-based replication engine, vSphere Replication, and integration support with vCloud Air, it provides simple and secure asynchronous replication and failover. Consider these top five reasons why you should look to the cloud for your disaster recovery needs.
Traditional disaster recovery solutions are expensive and complex. That’s making disaster recovery in the cloud a compelling alternative for many small-to-mid sized companies. Cloud solutions are more affordable, require less commitment, and offer more capacity—an ideal combination for resource-strapped organizations.
VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery is easy to deploy and offers flexible terms and scalable resource options. It enables you to improve upon your existing disaster recovery plans—or put a new plan into operation—with minimal cost and resources.
Here are three great reasons to get started now with vCloud Air Disaster Recovery.
Few companies can afford operational disruption, yet IT budgets remain flat and can’t encompass the growing need for additional
resiliency measures to protect critical-business applications. The recovery-as-a-service offering from VMware, VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery, helps you fulfill the need to implement or supplement your organization’s continuity plans while addressing
budget, time, and resources constraints. It provides simplified replication and recovery based on the VMware vSphere® platform.
For a successful setup of your disaster recovery service, keep in mind the following tips when getting started.
For organizations with disaster recovery services in place, the challenge often lies in supporting the ongoing maintenance and
re-evaluating the initial investment versus newer offerings as their environment continues to expand, or leases expire.
Fortunately, the landscape of disaster recovery solutions is shifting to accommodate changing IT needs. VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery provides simple, affordable, automated processes for replicating and recovering critical applications and data — at a fraction of the cost of duplicating infrastructure or maintaining
additional data centers. Organizations can afford to scale their efforts as needed, with flexible terms and resource options.
VMware Horizon View is an enterprise-class desktop virtualization solution that delivers virtualized or remote desktops and applications to end users through a single platform. Horizon View is a tightly integrated, end-to-end solution built on the industry-leading virtualization platform, VMware vSphere.
Many businesses are beginning to understand that hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: on-demand access to much-needed IT resources, and the flexibility to move workloads onsite or offsite to meet specific needs. The most common question is not “Why hybrid cloud?” but “How do we get started?”
Depending on your specific IT strategy and requirements, consider evaluating the following five types of workloads for hybrid cloud.
"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
security, compliance, and management of day-to-day end-user environments
